SME ConnectER

Following its successful debut in 2018, NERA’s SME ConnectER returns to AOG this year in an earlier and more compact format. The ConnectER is a facilitated process that helps connects established small to medium sized businesses with innovative products or services and a genuine value proposition to operators, contractors and service providers from the oil and gas sector.

On the mornings of Thursday 14 and Friday 15 March, a curated selection of SMEs will pitch their products/services to participating companies with the aim of getting connected with the right people to continue a conversation about their technology. This conversation can take place at a later date, or afterwards at Innovation Pods the SMEs will occupy for the day.

SME ConnectER was developed to encourage more collaboration and co-creation across the oil and gas sector and create opportunities to establish networks and meaningful and business relationships. Follow NERA on social media to find out more about the participating SMEs are and when they’re exhibiting.
