TMK Shines at OTC
For the fifth year, TMK participated at Houston’s annual Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) the largest event on the global oil and gas industry calendar.
OTC recorded its highest attendance as energy professionals gathered from across the globe to learn about new technologies that are safely pushing the boundaries of oil and gas exploration and development. Increasingly, despite “offshore” in its name, the event is becoming a mecca for all oil and gas companies in all facets of the industry. Officials reported that 108,300 executives, engineers, scientists and salespeople swarmed Houston’s NRG Park to gawk at the massive equipment on display, listen to lectures on the latest technical and market developments, and make new business connections.
TMK’s presence included a 20 x 20-foot booth in the highly-visited Reliant Arena which featured the full range of the company’s products and services as well as informative videos and customer literature.
A highlight of the OTC week was TMK’s annual “thank you” party for its customers, distributors and vendors. More than 400 people overflowed fashionable Tony’s restaurant in downtown Houston for the fifth year.Toasting the company’s customers, the chairman of TMK’s American Division, Piotr Galitzine said, “one of TMK IPSCO’s core values is a deep customer focus. It’s not just a slogan for us – it is something we live by every day. We view alliances and partnerships as key to our global competitiveness, and this event is one of the more enjoyable ways we serve customers each year. You, our customers, distributors and industry friends are central to everything we do. “
