AGR Team Attend Global Offshore Event

At the end of September, two members of our team from our Edinburgh office, Jamie Lauder and Gregor Tait, attended the Global Offshore Wind event which took place in London.

Run by RenewableUK, Global Offshore Wind is an annual conference and exhibition for the offshore energy industry. This year saw 170+ exhibitors, 300 speakers and hundreds more in attendance. Taking place over 2 days, the event allows networking opportunities with industry-leading individuals throughout the offshore wind supply chain, including high level policy makers, global press and more.

Jamie, who is a Senior Consultant and Gregor, who is a Personnel Coordinator within AGR, immersed themselves in the world of Offshore Wind, caught up with current clients and made new connections

With Gregor being new to the industry and 9 months into his role at AGR, it was a great experience to be involved in. Both Gregor and Jamie were able to learn more about the future of the offshore wind market from the many exhibitors and guest speakers throughout the event..

Gregor highlighted that networking with potential new clients and hearing about the type of work they are doing in the renewables sector was very exciting. Jamie also enjoyed speaking with our current clients in person and finding out what their future plans are for the offshore wind market. It was great to catch up with representatives from Sulmara, Fugro and N-Sea and make new connections with companies such  as Manor and Spectrum. The Sulmara stand in particular was very impressive with their AUV hanging above.

Overall, this was a great day of learning and a welcome change of pace after over a year of online-only industry events during lockdown. Gregor and Jamie learned a lot about the renewables sector and the new equipment being adopted. It was great to see so many companies being actively invested in the future of offshore wind.

We look forward to expanding even more into recruitment for this market in the future and will certainly be in attendance at future Global Offshore Wind events!
