|PETEX2016 at London ExCel Show and Exhibition complex|
➤ PETEX is held every two years in the fall a ExCel London, a cavernous exhibition ground in London's Thames estuarine area opposite its City airport and not far from the Thames Barrier. It was well attended at only 20% off organiser PESGB's attendance pace, which is excellent considering the economic climate. I presented at Future Working Zone on the hot topic of business transformation via digitization in the so-called Third Wave of internet distribution and dissemination..
➤ PROSPEX is held every year-end, just as budgets are being set up for next year by operators and investors. As described in OilVoice, this show assembles the four components of a successful resource industry:
- operators who have plans to further find and develop oil resources
- investors who look to supplementing the significant outlay for that
- vendors who help tackle more and more challenging environments
- regulators who give out permits and also help via taxation regimes

This is a smaller and more focused show - about half the size of PETEX - but also only 20% off its pace: that suggests as I conclude in OilVoice that "rumours of [oil idustry] death are an exaggeration", apologies to Mark Twain.
