Past event: IoT in Oil & Gas Conference 2021

ReNEW Relationships, Partnerships and Return To Business… In-Person

The imperative of decarbonization as well as 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 reducing carbon footprints, 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 in-person for its seventh consecutive year. This trusted event, back in-person in Houston 2021, will once again bring together our ever-increasing community of stakeholders, including operators, service companies, 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.

Over the past 6 years, thousands of owner/operators, service companies and technology innovators have gathered in Houston at IoT in Oil and Gas for ideas, solutions and contacts. We cannot wait to see you all again in September.

We are committed to running this event responsibly, following the guidance of local, state, and national health officials. We believe in the power of live events and are determined to provide the most content-rich agenda and best networking opportunities possible.
