Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is a series of conferences and exhibitions, focused on exchanging technical knowledge relevant to the development of offshore energy resources, primarily oil and natural gas. It was founded in 1969. There are four events organized by OTC. The flagship Offshore Technology Conference has been held annually during early May in Houston, Texas, USA since 1969.

It ranks among the largest 200 tradeshows held annually in the United States and is among the 10 largest meetings in terms of attendance. Attendance consistently exceeds 50,000, and more than 2,000 companies participate in the exhibition. OTC includes attendees from around the globe, with more than 120 countries represented at recent conferences.

The cost to attend the Offshore Technology Conference event is generally lower than prices for other oil and gas conferences. In 2018, to attend the full conference as a professional who was a member of one of the 13 sponsoring organizations the registration fee was $180 which included full access to the technical sessions and massive exhibition.

OTC is sponsored by 13 industry associations, which work cooperatively to develop the technical program each year. It allows the exhibitor to connect with C-suite leaders and more than 100 speakers globally and strives every time to showcase something new. To cover this global event, there will be more than 300 journalists from every corner of the world.
