Shire expertise at Offshore Europe

Aberdeenshire businesses displayed their expertise before thousands of visitors from across the world at the recent Offshore Europe oil showcase.

Twenty local businesses were represented on a joint stand led by Aberdeenshire Council in partnership with Aberdeen City Council and associates at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.

Senior council figures and economic development staff attended over the four days of the conference to promote the benefits of the North-east as a place to live and work.

The joint pavilion also provided a high profile opportunity for small-to-medium enterprises to highlight their work in the area to industry representatives from across the world.

More than twenty functions took place on the stand’s purpose-built hospitality suite, including a reception held by Provost of Aberdeenshire Councillor Jill Webster.
