68.174 people from 98 countries visited ONS 2018.
President and CEO Leif Johan Sevland is quite pleased with the number of relevant people visiting Stavanger this year. “Our ambition with ONS 2018 was to be an arena for discussions on energy, environmental issues, security and technology, and to facilitate collaboration across industries and academic disciplines. With that, I think we have succeeded and I hope we are one step closer in finding more sustainable solutions for the future,” he said.
The conference programme has been more extensive as ever with 620 speakers, compared to 88 speakers in 2010. The number of delegates at the ONS Conference has grown with 10 percent compared to ONS 2016, with a total of 3.635 participants over three days.
