  • Connect to a network of synergistic businesses, suppliers and associated organizations engaged in the offshore wind industry.

  • Develop networks for business financing, business-to-business sales, education, and workforce development as well as opportunities to expand into markets nationally and internationally.


There was more information and networking at this conference than the past three OSW conferences I’ve gone to put together. I am finding the format and the way it’s set up to be very beneficial in terms of encouraging people to team up. I’ve made a number of solid connections. We are going to get the phone calls and meetings and we are actually going to team and we are actually going to submit proposals together.Jay Borkland, Apex Companies, LLC
