OTC Hall of Fame Gala 2011

Join us at the Sixth Annual ASCE/OTC Hall of Fame Gala

The sixth annual Gala Dinner will be held Tuesday, May 3, 2011 at the Petroleum Club in Houston, TX. At the Gala, we will continue the tradition of honoring outstanding Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) papers that set the standard for current practices worldwide and have become an integral part of the offshore design process, as well as lending themselves to other civil engineering disciplines.

Since its inception, the OTC has provided the industry with outstanding papers that have shaped our world. Many of these papers offer innovation, vision, direction and lasting impact on design, construction or installation within the offshore industry. Hall of Fame authors will be recognized at the Gala, and a commemorative edition featuring the 2011 honored papers will be published by ASCE.
