CONFERENCE WITH PRESENTATIONS AND EXHIBITIONS
The Overflate Conference and Expo is an established, prestigious event focusing on corrosion protection, surface treatment and insulation. The conference last year attracted more than 300 industry participants, ranging from Top Management to Skilled Craftsmen. The conference is a well-established meeting place with participation from more than 115 companies within the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical industry, ship builders, infrastructure, engineering and inspection companies, contractors and suppliers. This year the conference is unfortunately canceled due to the onging pandemic.
We hope that we will meet again at Overflate for inspiration, learning and socializing in November 2021.
Overflate is hosted by NKF Bergen
