Pipeline expo goes statewide

After five years of “incredible growth,” the Tulsa Pipeline Expo is broadening its focus. It now will be known as The Pipeline and Energy Expo.

“We believe this move correctly emphasizes what we're trying to go after,” Chairman Bill Solomon said. Solomon said the new name reflects the expo's mission to expand Oklahoma's energy sector by offering year-round industry endeavors.

The expo launched in 2009 as the brainchild of Solomon, who wanted a way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his company, lift technology supplier Vacuworx Global. He said the company was too busy to mark its anniversary, but Vacuworx and several other companies arranged an expo to show appreciation for their customers.

The annual event has grown there, attracting more than 150 companies to the Tulsa Fairgrounds for this year's event.

Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett said the expo is an ideal event to spotlight Oklahoma's oil and gas industry. “Let's keep a good thing going,” he said.
