In the afterhours of the first exhibition day, on Tuesday the 10th of October you are invited to enjoy dinner and drinks, music and entertainment in a relaxing environment during the Official Networking Event of Offshore Energy hosted by iPS – Powerful People.

The offshore energy market is moving and ‘energy transition’ is the key element. This also accounts for the Networking Event which will be held at B-Building Amsterdam, a new location for the event that builds bridges between startups, creatives, and corporate and brings them together. An excellent location for inspirational networking.

Hugo Passchier: “In this competitive environment it is important to keep the quality of service high. We are judged on our latest job, not just the past successes. Therefore we believe it is highly important to share knowledge and bond with each other during this impressive event.”

Transport will be arranged, buses will leave from RAI in front of entrance K for a short 10 to 15 minutes’ drive and will bring you back to the RAI afterwards.

The event will take place from 19:00 – 23:00. We have arranged some energetic entertainment, among others a pianist as well as many other acts, which will help you to get into the right mindset and meet business relations at the same time.
