A unique Focus
At the Marietta College Oil & Gas Technical Exhibition, our focus is different from many of the other industry events. We chose to focus on the contractors and suppliers of our industry in order to learn from hands-on products and technologies. We still welcome operators, we just ask them to focus their booth on a problem and solution they've had in their company, overview a process as a whole, or something else technical. This is not a job fair nor a conference. Instead, it's an active learning platform for students, community members, and fellow industry employees.
Our main exhibition floor will be located inside Marietta College's Dyson Baudo Recreation Center. This location provides us with amble room for many exhibitors while retaining room for the main stage and lunch tables. The grounds, streets, and parking lots surrounding this location will be utilized for the display of large equipment and other outdoor exhibits.
Schedule of Events
- Exhibitors can begin setting up the night before or the morning before the event (more details to come).
- The exhibition will begin at 10am with both indoor and outdoor exhibits.
- Our Keynote Luncheon will begin at 12pm.
- The exhibition will close at 4pm with teardown following.
This exhibition is led by a group of petroleum engineering students currently attending Marietta College. Everything from initiation of the idea, to outreach, coordination, execution, catering selection, logistics, and more is done by students. However, we would like to also recognize Marietta College's Auxiliary Services for their continued assistance, as well as the college's administration and petroleum engineering faculty for their support.
Last Year's Inaugural Exhibition
Last year, at our inaugural exhibition we had over 400 attendees and over 50 companies exhibiting. We had 5 large pieces of equipment on display (Halliburton Data Van, Halliburton 30 ft long drilling BHA, Nine Energy Wireline Truck, Wagner Torque and Test Unit, One Aqua Source Lab). We also had 13 speakers including Callum Streeter, CEO of EdgeMarc Energy and Marietta College's President, Dr. Bill Ruud.
