THRU-U.COM EXHIBITS AT THE GET ENERGY CONFERENCE IN LONDON

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - DETROIT, MI. MARCH 26, 2008

 

Getenergy is an annual exhibition that brings together training providers, universities, colleges, institutes and companies that work in oil and gas exploration and production. Getenergy 2008 took place in the Business Design Centre in London and Thru-U travelled to London to partake in the exhibition, which highlights the importance of training and education in the oil and gas industries.

Our CEO Tadhg Carey and Product Development Manager, Suzanne Power, manned the Thru-U stand at the exhibition. We believe in learning through seeing, hearing and doing, so we provided demos of our 3D interactive simulators and samples of our safety and technical training modules to display the visual and interactive emphasis in our training programs. Our background is in face-to face training, and we provided a brochure of our former Ciote & Carey International Training Company, to explain our background and the 20 years of experience we have in technical and safety training. We also detailed our progression into Online Technical and Safety Training and why our product is unique in the training industry.

Over 40 countries were represented in the exhibition and the majority of the training companies exhibiting offered face-to-face training. We were the only training company that offered online training that was interactive, includes simulators, and puts an emphasis on learning through seeing, hearing and doing. Tadhg and Suzanne felt the exhibition was very well organised and the main aim of the exhibition, to connect business to business in the oil and gas industry, proved successful.

The organisers approached individual companies from the industry, training companies and colleges and asked them who they were interested in meeting at the exhibition, and then the two parties were introduced. This created an open, interactive and organised atmosphere. Thru-U made alliances and initiated business with technical colleges and a number of companies in markets we would not normally be in contact with, such as South America. The exhibition opened up interaction between educational organisations, industry and training companies that work in the oil and gas sphere, as well as connecting different international markets.
