2016 Show Recap

MCEDD 2016 Recap

MCE Deepwater Development 2016 | 5 – 7 April | Palais Beaumont | Pau, France | Host: Total

We would like to sincerely thank all those who attended MCE Deepwater Development 2016 in Pau, France.  We all certainly faced both Industry and non-Industry challenges this year!  However, based on the response we have heard, this year’s show was a very positive experience for almost all who attended.  Many thanks to Total for serving as a fantastic Host.  Their commitment to all aspects of the conference is truly commendable.  The Evening Soirée was certainly something that we will all speak about for years to come.

We would also like to thank the Sponsors, Exhibitors and Speakers, without the support of which, the show would be impossible to organize.  For a complete wrap up on the 2016 show, please scroll down for information on Attendees, Demographics, Technical Proceedings, as well as a growing number of photos taken throughout the show.

We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam next year.  We would greatly appreciate any feedback, comments or suggestions.
