Brasil Offshore 2015 - Whisky Tasting Reception
07 July, 2015
In an initiative that is becoming traditional, The EIC Rio once again hosted the Whisky Tasting Reception that took place on the second day of the Brasil Offshore exhibition in Macaé at the UK Pavilion.
Sponsored by Swire Oilfield Services and UK Trade and Investment, the reception lasted for two hours and had ten different single malt whisky labels. The UK Lounge also had the presence of representatives from the 11 exhibitors within the UK National Pavilion: Rolls-Royce, Rollstud, Bridon, CCG Cable, Aggreko, BOS, CMP, Dunlop, Hubbell, Orion, RBV Energy, among others invited. That was a great opportunity to informally promote networking between our companies and relevant contacts in the industry with companies like Modec, Petrobras, ABB, Odebrecht, Wartsila among others.
Even though the opportunities within oil and gas sector in Brazil have decreased, since some projects have been cancelled, opportunities in operation and maintenance projects are still ongoing, which was proven by the over 300 people that stepped by our UK Lounge to taste a bit of our hospitality and the excellence of the products and services that the UK is able to provide to the Brazilian oil and gas industry.
Once again, the Whisky Tasting Reception was a success and we thank our sponsors and guests for that!
Some of these lovely moments were caught on camera and we would like to share them with you through our Flickr page:
