Seatrain may be a small company but there’s nothing small about our training ambitions, nor our determination to assist companies in the African oil and gas sector with seafarer training management and administration.
So, when an opportunity presented itself to market Seatrain and its services on a bigger stage, we were determined to make the most of it!
Thanks to the support of the Western Cape Government’s Department of Economic Development and Tourism (DEDAT), we successfully secured the official sponsorship for the 2019 Africa Oil Week (AOW) Student Programme – and the event proved to be the ideal platform for not only communicating our commitment to skills development in the African oil and gas sector, but to network with industry movers and shakers.
For almost three decades, AOW has been at the vanguard of African oil, gas and energy and is widely considered as Africa’s leading oil and gas conference.
In 2019, 789 organisations and 1854 delegates attended AOW 2019, among them a number of big names representing the supermajors, geophysical companies, universities, oilfield service providers, independent oil companies and national oil companies, amongst others.
Seatrain was in good company and immensely proud to see our logo featured alongside industry leaders on, amongst others, the official event brochure and sponsors board.
Ours is a company that has punched above its weight right from the start, and the AOW 2019 Student Programme sponsorship gave us the opportunity to communicate reach an important audience!
Going forward, we are determined to make the most of the brand exposure and business leads gained from the 2019 AOW event.
We were also, particularly proud and honoured, to have sponsored a platform that introduces the next generation in oil and gas to the industry – and the industry to the human resource talent of the future.
Our thanks to AOW organisers, Hyve Events and the Western Cape Government for providing this opportunity to grow our business and our brand.
