EAGE's Start-up Area

Calling all geoscience and engineering start-ups! Are you looking for an opportunity to attract new investors and customers, and to boost the visibility of your innovative solutions? Then come and join the EAGE start-up area at the 80th EAGE Conference and Exhibition in Copenhagen (11-14 June 2018).
Since its inception, EAGE has supported new initiatives and innovative ideas. Start-ups are blossoming across our industry and we know they struggle with limited budgets and small audiences. Our industry needs innovation, so EAGE has decided to offer start-ups a special discounted fee and dedicated programme to ensure they have a presence at our Annual Conference and Exhibition, Europe’s largest multidisciplinary geoscience and engineering event.

Our Start-up package includes:

  • Exhibition space in our Start-up Area (high table and sign provided);
  • Two entrance passes (exhibition only);
  • The opportunity to create a buzz and pitch your innovative ideas, products and services from our exhibition floor theatre (participation mandatory);
  • The chance to be part of Europe's foremost exhibition of geoscience and engineering companies.

To benefit from this unique opportunity we ask you to submit your application with a start-up contract at exhibition@eage.org. Your application will be reviewed by a workgroup of industry professionals. If approved you will be welcomed to the EAGE Start-up Area in June 2018.
