Enhance, refine and realign your STO strategy to deliver operational efficiencies
The economic outlook remains challenging, and the ability to plan and implement efficient, safe and cost-effective shutdowns and turnarounds has rarely been as integral to your operational effectiveness as it is now.
Returning to Amsterdam on 12-13 February 2018, the 15th Annual Shutdowns and Turnarounds Summit continues to lead the industry by focusing on the key areas that contribute to successful and efficient turnarounds of both onshore and offshore assets for all sectors, not just oil and gas!
To protect slim margins, STO strategy is increasingly focused on extending the period between shutdowns, or advising small, targeted periods of maintenance. This shift needs to be managed carefully, and this year’s Summit will focus heavily on providing you with clear advice and guidance to support your organisation and mitigate risk.
Qualified STO managers will always be a scarce commodity, so ensuring the right knowledge and experience is transferred and shared is key to delivering long-term operational excellence. In addition, new software and other technologies continue to enhance the planning and implementation process, whilst also delivering value-add opportunities.
As the longest-established event focused on shutdowns and turnarounds, representing the largest community of industry professionals, we will continue to bring you exclusive case studies and up to date guidance from global leaders in oil and gas, petrochemicals, metals, wind, nuclear and refineries, to reinvigorate your STO strategy.

What past attendees have to say about the event
"We have worked with IQPC for the past three years on both Turnarounds & Shutdowns and more recently on Offshore exhibitions. Their “smaller but focused” approach rather than the usual “bigger is better” has worked very well in terms of eliminating timewasters and introducing us to the decision makers that we need to meet in order to progress. It has helped us to efficiently develop the market and realise opportunities and we will be attending the Rotterdam exhibition in 2016."Peter Reynolds, Technical Business Development Manager Denholm MacNamee
