"It reminds me of the good old days of ONS, with lots of people eager to meet, mingle and do business,” says Tom Fidjeland, CEO of GCE NODE and ONS veteran.

On the opening day of the international energy expo and conference in Stavanger, attendance was high – and so was the chatter.

More than 30 GCE NODE companies are present at this edition of ONS. 14 stand together at the GCE NODE Pavilion, another 16 have their own stand, and some more are walk-arounds in the many halls which constitutes the conference area.

It is expected that 70,000 people will attend ONS 2022. That would be on par with the attendance at the last ONS, which was in 2018.
