2020 COS Forum

November 10-12, 2020 

COS Virtual Event

Navigating the Changing Safety Landscape

2020 COS Forum – Welcome Letter from Russell Holmes, Director of the Center for Offshore Safety 
2020 COS Forum Draft Program

Please join the Center for Offshore Safety at its Eighth Annual Forum. The COS Forum brings offshore industry operators, drilling contractors, service/supply companies, academia, and regulators together to facilitate collaboration and drive continual improvement.

The Forum began in 2013 as part of the COS commitment to “sharing industry knowledge” and has become the premier safety-focused event for the industry. It also provides the opportunity for networking and idea exchange, with our dedicated sponsors and exhibitors sharing their latest products and services.

While the 2020 COS Forum will be different compared to previous years, it will remain one that is right for you, providing a compelling online experience incorporating the latest technology for engaging communities online. Breakout sessions, Q&A capabilities, and networking opportunities will be included.

Our virtual conference will also maintain the strong connection with our sponsors and exhibitors through dedicated pages, where attendees can download brochures, watch videos, and even schedule virtual face-to-face appointments with booth staff.

Participate with confidence, knowing you will be part of the loyal, dedicated high-level audience this COS event is known for.
