The must-attend digitalization event for networking, knowledge exchange and business development in the Oil & Gas Industry


The dual-shocks of the global pandemic and oil price collapse has increased the urgency for operators to fast-track their  digital transformation programs.

Automation, sensors, digital twins, AI, drones - all reduce operating costs and aide in social distancing, crucial to surviving the present and thriving in the future.

The IoT in Oil & Gas Conference, the world's largest focused IoT in Oil & Gas event, is returning for its sixth consecutive year . This trusted event will once again bring together our ever-increasing community of stakeholders, including operators, EPCs, drilling companies and technology solution providers, to debate the crucial challenges, issues and emerging trends shaping the digital transformation of oil & gas.

In today's oil & gas environment, leading operators are looking for strategies to maximize efficiencies and protect the bottom line. This industry can no longer just focus on short-term cost-cutting exercises; there must be investment in emerging technologies and digital transformation in order to survive.

The 2020 program will address the oil & gas industry's concerns of operating in a low-cost, post-COVID-19 environment by focusing on topics with proven solutions for the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors such as:
  • Digital transformation
  • Using technology to reduce carbon emissions
  • Low cost sensors
  • Edge computing
  • Artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Cloud computing
  • Cybersecurity
  • Remote communications
  • Digital twins
  • Blockchain
  • IoT investment

In 2020 we will continue to gather the best and brightest from all over the globe in an effort to give you access to information you can take back to the office and use every day. From energy transition, increasingly volatile oil prices, disruptive technologies, intensified global competition and government regulations, the oil & gas industry faces tough challenges ahead. Let the 6th Annual IoT in Oil & Gas Conference give you the confidence to face them head-on.
