A delegation from Agder consisting of company representatives, public officials and key academic personnel from the University of Agder and other regional research institutions will be travelling to Houston. The OTC program is being tailored with parallel sessions to ensure relevance for all participants.
The planning committee consists of both Agder counties, the municipalities of Kristiansand, Arendal and Grimstad, the University of Agder, Innovation Norway and GCE NODE.

The Norwegian delegation will stay at the Hyatt Regency Galleria. A limited number of rooms have been reserved for delegates. Delegates wishing to do so can choose other accommodation. HRG can assist delegates interested in other accommodation options.
Agder participants travelling to Houston, though not registered with the Norway2OTC delegation, will need to make their own hotel arrangements. Rooms may still be available at the Hyatt Regency Galleria and there are several hotels located close by. We recommend staying in the Galleria area as transportation to all events will depart from/arrive at the Hyatt Regency.
