The Norwegian Society of Lifting Technology (NSLT) in cooperation with the Offshore Mechanical Handling Equipment Committee (OMHEC) are pleased to welcome you to The 28th International Offshore Crane & Lifting Conference (IOCLC) in Stavanger April 8th-9th 2025!

The conference has for the last 27 years established itself as probably one of the most important meeting places for industry and experts on offshore cranes and safe lifting operations. In 2024, a total of 180 delegates from 19 nations and 5 continents were represented. We are aiming to make the conference as international as possible.

During the conference, the participants will have the opportunity to meet and share their experiences with offshore petroleum regulators, experts and industry leaders from the offshore crane and lifting operations community.

The conference has the goal to cover a wide range of new topics in offshore cranes and lifting technology, offshore wind, subsea and heavy lifting, crane standardisation and regulatory and industry safety initiatives. Participants will have ample opportunity to enter into discussions with the speakers and sufficient time to interact with companies presenting their goods and services in the exhibition area.


Why you should be attending the 28th International Offshore Crane and Lifting Conference?

You’ll get the latest up-to-date information in the offshore crane and lifting business industry, as well as answers to all of your crane and lifting questions. Additionally, globally renowned crane business leaders, end-users, consultants, petroleum regulators and vendors are under one roof. This facilitates learning, information exchange and networking, and seeing and trying new technology. Attendees develop long lasting international business relationships, which contributes to enhancing safety and improving industry practices.


Why is this conference so different?

This is the only conference with focus exclusively on offshore cranes & lifting, in multiple sectors, and with truly global participation. The conference is not a series of sales-orientated pitches, but a dynamic gathering of like-minded people involved in the offshore lifting industry. Our unique blend of presentations, case studies and exhibitions provide you with a unique opportunity to walk away from the event with all the information you need to get the most out of your daily lifting operational tasks. This conference gives the lifting community the platform it truly deserves, as it provides many hours of dedicated networking time for you to talk openly with your peers, suppliers and customers, and the opportunity to conduct business face-to-face.
