The 2017 European Dynamic Positioning Conference will focus on the issues and challenges affecting the dynamic positioning market itself, the DP issues that affect the offshore vessel market as a whole, and on how, in a challenging market, DP can be used to make operations safer, more efficient and more cost-effective.
Senior speakers from leading organisations share their insights on DP technology, training and regulations. They will also address global and regional perspectives on DP best practice in the EU, Americas and Middle East. As usual the event will include numerous networking opportunities – extended lunches, refreshment breaks and drinks reception
The conference photos are available to view on this page.
In 2017 the European Dynamic Positioning conference will be held in February and as an intensive one day event, on the day preceding our Annual Offshore Support Journal conference.
As the DP market is so closely aligned with the OSV industry we believe that this change has offered delegates, sponsors and exhibitors an even better overall experience, with greater networking opportunities and attract an event wider audience.
Announcing the Dynamic Positioning Award
2017 will be the second time that we have included a Dynamic Positioning Award as part of the Annual OSJ Conference, Awards & Exhibition. The dynamic positioning award is awarded to the developer of an innovative DP product or system, or contractor responsible for an especially innovative application of DP on a project, if you would like to nominate a company for this new award you can do so here.
2017 highlights will include:
- Insight into key challenges in the current market
- DP innovations and technologies
- An update on the work of the Nautical Institute, DNV GL and IMCA

"As Platinum sponsors of this event and a specialist DP service provider, we see this as the highlight of the European Offshore conference year and 2013 generated vibrant debate that pointed at the industry need for common standards in the competence area for DPO certification and in the technical area for FMEA/Audit process."

"I think it’s a unique opportunity to meet with industry professionals, there are lot of conferences out there, but the challenges addressed here, that attract the right people from the right companies, Riviera has succeeded in and delivered on to a much greater extent than the others."
