Hello [firstname],

Welcome to the BABC - Houston newsletter of upcoming events, articles, jobs and more from our membership.

The 4th Annual BABC International Business Awards programme kicked off with a reception graciously and generously hosted by Hotel Granduca last week for sponsors and previous finalists. Judging from the excitement in the room we are looking at another great competition. We are grateful to have our returning Presenting Sponsor United Airlines and Platinum Sponsor Wood Group PSN on board. Other sponsorship opportunities will be out to you soon.
 
A small change in procedure this year, if you would like to enter your company or a client or partner company, we have a one page entry request form for you to fill out. Send it back and we will send the full application to the contact you give us. The form can be downloaded here.
 
I know we all have a big week coming up with the Offshore Technology Conference. Many of the pre-conference events are starting today. Remember that BABC will be at the Hilton Post Oak Monday morning doing one on ones with UKTI. We will also be on the floor of the conference Monday afternoon and most of the day Tuesday and Wednesday. If you would like to meet for a quick BABC overview of the UK presence at the conference or discuss other BABC opportunities call our cell phone 832-351-3940 anytime during the conference. 
 
Happy Conferencing!
