The Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association's Fall Conference will be Oct. 10 at Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale, Mo.
The OKC Oilfield Expo will be Oct. 16-17 in the Cox Convention Center.
Each conference has its own focus, although there is quite a bit of overlap.
Next up is the Tulsa Pipeline Expo.
Besides its focus on pipelines, the expo also is somewhat more exclusive than many similar events. The pipeline expo allows only companies with a presence in Oklahoma to set up a booth.
“We're focused on how to strengthen Oklahoma companies,” Expo Chairman Bill Solomon said. “We're not opposed to folks from Texas and Kansas and Arkansas and other states attending, but we want them to understand that having a presence and connection in Oklahoma is important.”
One of the major goals of the event is to connect operators and other Oklahoma companies with local suppliers.
“We've had too many comments from people who have said they've been going to Texas or Florida to find something because they didn't know about a company here in Oklahoma that can provide that product or service,” Solomon said.
