Renting a booth isn’t the only way companies can advertise their products and services at the Offshore Technology Conference.

 

Stall ads at OTC 2017

To get their message out, they can go conventional like buying advertising banners draped across the exhibit halls for everyone to see. Or in years past, they would rent space on the escalators to attract the attention of convention goers.

But for the companies that want a little more flair, they can get their names and logo stamped on lanyards, tote bags and coffee cup sleeves. There is even a “restroom sponsorship package,” according to the NRG Park advertising opportunities for OTC. For $35,000, a company can post 565 signs on the back of toilet stalls and bathroom facilities at NRG Center and Arena.

Or if that is too much money in this low oil price environment, vendors can buy a “hand sanitizer package.” For $16,500, a company can sponsor 20 hand sanitizer stations complete with promotional signs, according to the OTC promotional contract.
