The digital transformation of our industry is gaining momentum and marks one further step into a new age of our industry. Companies from a wide variety of industries are already unlocking this potential – they are using end-to-end digitalization to create a lasting competitive edge by reducing time to market cost and risks and increasing flexibility, efficiency, safety and quality.

At the same time the digital transformation is also gaining more and more momentum for new ideas; completely new businesses and cooperation models.
Which will have impact in our industry, our way of working and our society.

In the afternoon we will open the Digital Transformation theme with talks about the challenges, requirements of digital transformation and startups innovation by Microsoft, Next47 and programs of our governments Topsector Energy.
Thereafter, we will get together to discuss and work on recent developments in the regular Working Working Group meetings on Digital Oil & Gas, Offshore Energy, CC(U)S, Geothermal Energy and will introduce a new working group “Community Engagement”

The evening program will delve into some promising examples and developments where successful digital transformation has been applied applicate for e.g. Automotive by Volkswagens AG, Oil & Gas, Renewable Energy by Shell, Energy and utilities industries by Alliander and Siemens.

After a panel discussion between the guest speakers industry experts from SBM Offshore, Fluor and Alliander the evening ends with networking and drinks.

We hope to see you all on March 21 March 2018 at the Car Jeans Stadium in The Hague. This will offer you insights in the importance of digitalisation, stakeholder involvement and community engagement along our Energy Transition journey.
