OWC2019 is a 'must attend' event for all those interested in this growing market.

Offshore Wind Connections 2019 (OWC2019) is the event for all those interested in the rapidly growing offshore wind sector in the North Sea and beyond.  Hosted by Team Humber Marine Alliance, it is now in its seventh year and will take place on 1 and 2 May at the Doubletree by Hilton Hull.

OWC 2018 saw over 350 delegates attend and over 40 companies exhibit with a fantastic speaker line-up!  Following on from that success, 2019 will be better with improvements to the exhibition area with more room for exhibitors and delegates.

OWC 2019 will offer the chance to network with key players from across the offshore wind sector.

The two-day event commences on 1 May with “WindMeet”, a programme of 1-2-1 sessions with representatives from key offshore wind industry organisations. (More details and how to book will be provided soon).

The conference will be officially opened on the evening of 1 May at the networking reception with RenewableUK.

The evening will give exhibitors and delegates the opportunity to network in a relaxed atmosphere.  Those who have booked to attend the conference can attend the evening reception at no extra charge.

The  main conference and exhibition on the 2 May will include contributions from high-profile guest speakers. There will be opportunities to network throughout the day at breakfast, lunch or during the afternoon.

Why get involved?

  • Highest profile offshore wind event in the region which attracts regional, national and international delegates
  • Key industry speakers
  • Network with hundreds of delegates at the conference and networking events
  • Excellent media coverage

Join us for what will be the only event of its kind in the region!

Organised by Team Humber Marine Alliance (THMA), this is the perfect time and place to assess what our region has to offer. Three of the UK’s largest wind farms and 80 per cent of all North Sea offshore wind farms are on our doorstep, while 60 per cent of the entire European offshore wind project to be built by 2020 are within 12 hours vessel steaming time.

OWC2019 is devoted to delivering business intelligence by creating opportunities for knowledge sharing and business networking throughout the day.

Opportunity to attend the RenewableUK pre-conference networking reception on May 1st.


Thought leaders and key industry figures will discuss the latest developments in the industry including updates on key projects from developers, government organisations, manufacturers, port operators, marine support, vessel owners and operations and maintenance service providers.

The morning session with contributions from guest speakers will be followed in the afternoon by specialist panels on contemporary industry subjects.  The late afternoon event will see a further chance to network.

After the success of Hull 2017 City of Culture, the brand new Double Tree by Hilton located in the city centre is a very fitting setting for OWC 2019!

Returning for 2019 will see additional activities on day one of the event including proposed site visits in the morning and in the afternoon WindMeet 1-2-1 sessions with key industry representatives.
