Etoy, Switzerland, 7. September 2021 - Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, announced today that it will hold an online trade show dedicated to the oil and gas industry, on 6 and 7 October 2021.


O&G to Energy: Flexibility in a Changing World will welcome oil and gas professionals across the globe to discuss the rapidly evolving energy world, together with related key challenges.


The event focuses on four key themes:

- Materials selection drivers – including challenges such as tackling corrosion, materials availability and metallurgy considerations

- Routes to carbon zero – this explores emissions reduction, hydrogen applications, electrification, renewables and technology transfer options

- Digitalization and efficiency – which covers how to improve efficiency through enhanced asset management, condition monitoring, predictive maintenance and automation

- Improved skills, training and safety – in particular, technology-based training and best practices to ensure industry safety and reduce risk.


Parker will showcase the latest oil and gas technologies from a series of virtual exhibition booths.  There will also be a training zone with free, live presentations; a designated lounge area where oil and gas professionals can connect; and a lecture cinema screening new expert content on-demand - including insights into industry trends from Diveena Danabalan, senior energy analyst at the Energy Industries Council.


Joachim Guhe, president for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Parker, said: “The energy industry is in transition and we are proud to support many leading and growing companies on this journey.”


“O&G to Energy is all about exploring new ways of working – including opportunities to reduce emissions, streamline operations, boost productivity and make the best use of emerging technologies. We look forward to welcoming both new and established oil and gas contacts over the two days, and hope that delegates will find significant value in the activities available – from live training sessions to technical advice, on-demand lectures and networking opportunities.”
