IPF Program

The Business Network for Offshore Wind's International Partnering Forum (IPF) is the leading technical conference for offshore wind in the United States and is dedicated to moving the industry forward. Offshore wind brings new revenue streams and thousands of jobs to the US. The 2 1/2 days are packed with a cutting-edge educational program, top-notch exhibitors and abundant networking opportunities. Let’s work together to keep moving this new US industry forward.

What makes the IPF special?

WindMatch™ sessions are one-on-one, half-hour meetings with other offshore wind businesses. Develop networks for business financing, business-to-business sales, education, and workforce development as well as opportunities to expand into markets nationally and internationally. You must register for WindMatch™ in advance. Find out more details about WindMatch™ here.

What's New & Spinning occurs in a small group setting where US offshore wind developers discuss their perspective on the U.S. market, lessons learned, insights and priorities. Developers structure the sessions and include their latest project plans and supply chain engagement strategies. This is your chance to get all your questions answered in an informal setting.

The following companies will be participating:

  • US Wind
  • Avangrid
  • Ørsted Energy

Lunch & Learn briefings are short, punchy presentations on new products, enterprises, technical case studies and projects happening in the US offshore wind industry. The discussions are designed to be informative and informal allowing for interactive participation.

After the IPF, fill out a short survey to get access to the presentations shown at the IPF.

One of the most useful events I have undertaken in 10 years of wind. Well done. See you next year. 2018 IPF attendee
