Due to its Houston location, the world's hub for oil and gas, Breakbulk Americas attracts the biggest oil & gas companies, as well as many of the top-ranked global engineering, procurement and construction firms who attend the event to network with one another and find new supply chain partners. In fact, more shippers attend Breakbulk Americas than any other Breakbulk event.

You will hear perspectives and lessons learned from major project participants, information that you won't find anywhere else.

Why just visit when you can exhibit?

Many of the exhibitors you'll meet on the show floor started their Breakbulk experience as a visitor. They quickly realized they would get more out of the experience by becoming an exhibitor, and they've been coming back for years.
