HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--More than 3,000 oil and gas industry decision-makers and 200 exhibitors from across the U.S. are expected to attend Summer NAPE 2018 in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center on August 15-16. The annual expo will provide benefits to every professional in the upstream oil and gas industry, from prospects and buyers to sellers and partners at small independents and majors, featuring more than 2.4 million prospect acres from 16 states.
“NAPE remains the go-to expo to generate deals, learn about changing trends and regulations, and make invaluable connections in the oil and gas industry," said Jim Devlin, chairman of the NAPE Operators Committee. "We're continuing the momentum from the rebounding market and NAPE’s 25th anniversary celebration by offering attendees the chance to attend exciting networking events, learn about emerging technologies and make unrivaled deals."
Summer NAPE will feature annual favorite events, such as the Business Conference, Prospect Previews and Capital & Service Provider Previews. The Business Conference will include C-suite presenters from key industry players, including Rice Investment Group, Brigham Minerals and Brigham Exploration, HDBC Investments Limited, Alamo Resources LLC, HBW Resources and Preng & Associates. Following the Business Conference, the tradeshow will be filled with hundreds of exhibitors looking to make deals, with two days of presentations in the NAPE theater allowing exhibitors to showcase their current prospects, pitch their services to a captive audience and drive traffic to their booths.
Hot Play Happy Hours will continue in 2018 after an outstanding debut at the 2017 Summer NAPE. These regionally-focused networking events provide a convenient way to connect with other professionals working in the same geographic area. Additionally, the annual Icebreaker networking event will allow attendees and exhibitors an opportunity to mix and mingle.
Summer NAPE will include a Government Relations Session, which will describe the changing framework of federal regulations from the Trump Administration and address the challenges Congress faces codifying these reforms. NAPE partner IPAA will present an oil and gas overview course, and the OCS Advisory Board will host a half-day seminar in advance of the Business Conference. And finally, Summer NAPE will conclude with a Summer Sweepstakes drawing for two Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
