    Attending OTC .09? What to Know Before You Go
    Alex Wang

    From OTC Communications

    We Look Forward to Seeing You in Houston, Texas, USA!

    More than 65,000 offshore E&P professionals are expected at the 2009 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), 4-7 May in Houston. Please refer to these helpful tips to save time and make the most of your OTC experience.

    Fastest Way To Get Your OTC Badge

    If you registered before 20 March and live in the US, you should have received your badge in the mail. If you did not receive your badge, take a printed copy of your confirmation email to any pre-registered counter.

    These counters are located in the OTC Pavilion, Reliant Stadium, and in lobbies B, D, and E of Reliant Center.

    If you registered after 20 March or you reside outside the US, take a printed copy of your confirmation email to a pre-registered counter.

    International Attendees

    If you are arriving on an international flight to George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), take a printed copy of your confirmation email to the registration counter located in the passenger greeting area on level 1 of Terminal E (international arrivals). OTC directional signs will be posted to assist you. Badge pick-up hours at the airport are as follows:

    Friday, 1 May 1200-1900
    Saturday, 2 May 1100-1900
    Sunday, 3 May 1100-1700
    Monday, 4 May 1000-1500

    Houston-Area Attendees

    If you live in the Houston area or are arriving in Houston before OTC opens, visit Reliant Center Lobby D during the following hours to pick up your badge in advance:

    Thursday, 30 April 0800-1700
    Friday, 1 May 0800-1700
    Saturday, 2 May 0800-1700
    Sunday, 3 May 0800-1600

    Driving Directions to Reliant Park

    Reliant Park is located within the inner loop of the southern portion of Interstate Loop 610 between Kirby Drive and Fannin Street. Follow the street signs directing you to the best entry gate as you approach Reliant Park. Learn more.
