As previously announced, the National Association of Oil and Energy Service Professionals and the Atlantic Region Energy Expo will be partnering for a joint trade show next year at the Foxwoods Casino Resort in Ledyard, Conn. The name of the event will be the Eastern Energy Expo. This will be a much larger event and draw a varied audience. Additionally, the Pennsylvania Petroleum Association joined the event.
As OESP noted in an announcement, each party will maintain their autonomy where special events are concerned. For example, OESP will have its Monday Opening Reception, Tuesday Awards Function and its own hospitality. AREE will host its traditional Hospitality Night. OESP will focus on technical education and AREE on the management training.
OESP’s Annual Golf Tournament that supports its scholarship will be held on Monday and all parties will strive for the goal of supporting the scholarships. The Care to Ride event will be held on Monday as well.
The Trade Show will be merged and be bigger and offer a full array of products and support services used by the energy industry. There will be two levels of show space and the popular outdoor area for live burner firing.
