Reflecting on Two Key Events in the USA

4 June 2024

Recently, we attended two significant yet distinct events in the USA: the IPF and the OTC.


The International Partnering Forum (IPF) is the premier exhibition and conference for Offshore Wind in the USA. This event provides a comprehensive overview of the industry’s current state and has been expanding annually. It was encouraging to witness the growing momentum for Offshore Wind, meet with our clients, potential clients, unions, candidates, and other stakeholders. Held in New Orleans, Louisiana—a hub for the Gulf of Mexico’s offshore industry where traditional Oil and Gas converge with Offshore Wind—New Orleans proved to be an excellent host with its vibrant food scene, lively atmosphere, rich history, and promising future.


The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is the leading US exhibition and conference for the energy industry, located in my hometown of Houston, Texas. While it primarily focuses on Oil and Gas, the event is increasingly incorporating renewable energy. The overall momentum for offshore energy is evident. It was heartening to see the global energy industry well-represented with substantial national pavilions from the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Guyana, Norway, and many others. This event brings together numerous industry stakeholders. The networking opportunities at OTC made it a highly productive week for reconnecting with current and potential clients, candidates, and stakeholders. A standout moment was iPS sponsoring and hosting the Holland House Mexico breakfast session, which successfully combined interests in the Gulf of Mexico, expanded our network, and showcased our capabilities in the Americas region.
