Since 2004, MCEDD has continued to grow in operator attendance year after year increasing the quality of our audience. Just last year 30% of both our attendees and our technical presentations were from Operator companies. Additionally, 45% of delegates held a management position within their company, followed closely by the valued industry engineers. Our technical program has become incredibly competitive throughout the years with record breaking abstract submissions. We had 155 abstracts in Milan and could only accept 68. Our competitive technical program with industry leading presenters along with our high quality attendees is what makes MCEDD the worlds leading deepwater conference and exhibition.
