Friends of SPE:
The Appalachian Section of the Society of Petroleum Engineers is proud to host the 2019 SPE Eastern Regional Meeting in Charleston, West Virginia, on October 15-17, 2019. Themed “The Beast in the East,” we anticipate over 200 industry representatives to attend this annual event to explore new technologies and network with oil and gas professionals from the Appalachian basin and we hope that you and your organization can join us this fall.
As honored hosts of this event, we are seeking sponsorships to help defray the cost of the meeting and to support our section’s continued scholarship program. Specifically, all proceeds from this year’s meeting will be provided as scholarships to the Petroleum Engineering students at Marietta College. In the past five years, we have been able to provide over $30,000 in scholarship support to deserving students thanks to the generosity of industry sponsors, and we hope to continue this program in full complement for years to come.
We know that recent regional meetings have suffered from the downturn in the greater industry, but this year’s planning committee is deeply committed to providing value to both sponsors and participants through a curated technical program, a robust exhibition hall, a renewed focus and outreach towards operators in the region, and an industry panel discussing the future of our basin.
Sponsors will receive wide exposure throughout the meeting, including at all social functions and in the exhibit hall, through signage and recognition, serving as an excellent opportunity for your company’s name to be viewed by a large yet targeted audience. While the details provided on this site outline the various rewards we offer as thanks to our generous sponsors, we are more than willing to entertain any additional ideas you may have in an effort to provide continued value to sponsoring organizations and attendees alike.
In closing, thank you for your interest and your continued support of SPE. We look forward to seeing you in Charleston this October, and if you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
