GEO 2020 conference and exhibition, previously scheduled for 16-19 March, has been postponed until the 14-17 September 2020.
GEO 2020 looks to the future for new ideas and new ways of working smarter, faster and more efficiently. The Start Up Village showcases fledgling businesses whose products and services have the power to transform the industry.
From AI to IoT, Big Data solutions and blockchain technologies, GEO 2020 will showcase the game changers who will help shape the oil & gas industry over the next decade.
“We recognise how important it is for new businesses and start-ups to get their product or service in front of the right people on a budget. The Start Up Village at GEO 2020 has given 16 companies who demonstrate the use of a transformative product or service to the oil & gas industry exhibition space free of charge at this year’s show,” said Informa Markets’ sales manager AbdulRazaq Ali.
