What a success! ONS 2014 exceeded all of our expectations – with a record breaking number of 91 682 visitors, 1380 wonderful exhibitors and a revitalised conference with 700 delegates participating every day.
- We have succeeded in creating a forum for discussion on future solutions. The conference has been revitalised. Top presenters from all over the world has shared their insight more freely and braver than ever before. We are also very pleased with the new venues for the exhibition and the increasing support for ONS’ comprehensive system for free public transportation, says President and CEO of ONS, Leif Johan Sevland.
ONS would like to thank our visitors, exhibitors, conference speakers and delegates, contractors and subcontractors, the royal family, politicians and ministers – and not the least: the people of Stavanger who once again welcomed all the visitors in a magnificent way.
