Plan Your Trip to Houston and the Offshore Technology Conference

Houston Offshore Technology Conference

Are you one of the thousands who will be heading to OTC2014? While OTC gives you access to leading-edge information, there is much to see and do while here. If you’re packing your bags for Houston and OTC2014, check out these tips when planning your trip.

Average Weather Conditions

Welcome to Houston, where mild temperatures typically rule the day. May finds daily highs increasing from 83° to the low 90s, with a few days dropping below 75°. Note to self: Layering is the way to go. Pack a rain coat, sunscreen and a light sweater.

Maps & Transportation

The host organizations do an excellent job of providing maps, directions and the tips and tricks needed to navigate and get you where you need to go.

Bring Your Appetite

As the nation’s fourth largest city, Houston boasts of a wide range of restaurants from fine dining to the more local, low-key joints. Ask the natives and they’ll be sure to tell you to give our BBQ a try. Oh, and the Fajitas. Chicken or Beef? Make it both. Oh yes, Chili and, for that neighboring Louisianan or Cajun flare, some tasty gumbo. Oh my.

What to Do and What to See

Beyond the great talks and networking opportunities found in and around Reliant Center, the OTC at the Ballpark is scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday, May 4. The Astros will host the Seattle Mariners that afternoon, with game time at 1:10 p.m. For early arrivals, the Houston all-new female soccer team, the DASH, will be hosting the Portland Thorns on Saturday, May 3 at the Dynamo Center. If you’d like to host an event for your special guests, the 2020 Events team stands ready to help you pull it together and make OTC2014 a winning experience.

While this list may not be exhaustive, it’s a great place to begin.
