Last year, OTC marked its 20th anniversary with an extensive tech- nical program and major exhibition.

OTC assembled a special museum to display the immense develop- ment and range of offshore technol- ogy produced during its 20 years in existence.

OTC primarily serves offshore in- dustry engineers, managers, scien- tists and marine-related personnel from around the world. Over 1 mil- lion participants from around 90 countries have attended the com- bined technical programs and exhi- bitions of OTC since its inception in 1969.

The conference is sponsored by 11 prominent engineering and scien- tific organizations, including the So- ciety of Naval Architects and Ma- rine Engineers (SNAME) and the

American Society of Mechanical

Engineers (ASME), with combined worldwide memberships in excess of 700,000. The event is managed by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) for the sponsoring organiza- tions.
