The European Optical Society Annual Symposium 2012, The World Heavy Oil Congress 2012 and The Society of Core Analysts Symposium 2012 are expected to attract 1,750 attendees between then to Aberdeen.

The World Heavy Oil Congress, having already taken place in China, Canada and Venezuela, will take place from 10-13 September and is expected to bring in 1,000 delegates. As the oil capital of Europe, the region’s diverse energy landscape (in particular the North Sea reserves) lends unique context for the technical expertise and business insight contributions to the global heavy oil community.  

The European Optical Society’s (EOS) Annual Meeting will be held over four days from 25-28 September. Hosted every even year in Paris, the EOS Annual Meeting (EOSAM) has established itself as a major European event with at least 500 attendees expected.

Aberdeen was chosen in order to reach the wider European community and broaden the appeal to those not directly connected with EOS.

As the National Energy Exhibition Centre, AECC is ideally positioned as a world-class conference, exhibition and event venue located within the energy city of Aberdeen.

The Society of Core Analysts 2012 Symposium will be held from 27-30 August and 250 delegates are expected.  

Brian Horsburgh, Managing Director of AECC, commented: "It is great that these three societies chose AECC as the venue for such major events, reinforcing the emphasis that AECC and Aberdeen are a highly attractive choice in the international Conference market."
