The OERB has canceled its 2020 Oklahoma Oil and Gas Expo because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The organization said it was canceled “to protect the health and safety of exhibitors and attendees.”
Originally set for October 15th, the annual event hosted by a committee of the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board (OERB) is the largest expo of its kind in the state. This would have been the 24th year.
“The Oklahoma Oil & Gas Expo is a staple in our industry. Despite the difficult decision to cancel, we remain steadfast in our commitment to serve the oil and natural gas industry and will continue to support businesses and those who work in the industry,” said OERB Executive Director Mindy Stitt.
The John C. Godwin Memorial Golf Tournament, held along with the Expo, will still take place on October 8th with safety protocols in place that follow CDC guidelines. This year the golf tournament will offer unique benefits that allow a limited number of participants to exhibit at every other hole, upload promotional videos to the digital program and host a free-to-attend webinar.
“We believe providing a safe way to network is more important now than ever,” said Stitt.
All oil and natural gas companies will also have the opportunity to add their company name and description in a digital directory that will be located on the event website. For more information on registering for the digital program or the golf tournament, visit okoilexpo.com.
