Enhance, refine and realign your STO strategy to reduce costs and efficiently deliver operational efficiencies

Back for its 7th edition, the 7th Annual Shutdowns, Turnarounds and Outages Conference taking place from 30 September - 1 October 2018 in Abu Dhabi, will continue to lead the industry by focusing on key areas that contribute to successful and efficient turnarounds of assets for all sectors undertaking planned shutdowns in their operations.

To protect slim and diminishing margins, STO stakeholders are increasingly focusing on extending the period between shutdowns and advising on small, targeted periods of maintenance. This shift however, requires careful planning and strategy to ensure safe and efficient operations.

The 7th edition will focus on providing you with clear advise and strategies to support your organisations objectives while mitigating risk. With new software and technologies available for STO stakeholders, planning and implementation process have advanced. However, the right knowledge and experience transfer is key to delivering operational excellence.

With exclusive case studies and a region-wide strategic implementers guiding the audience, the conference will bring together live case studies, panel discussions, roundtable discussions and exhibitions to strengthen your STO strategy.
