Dear Colleagues and Supporters of SPE:
The Ohio Petroleum Section of the Society of the Petroleum Engineer is excited to host the 2022 SPE Eastern Regional Meeting at Oglebay Resort in Wheeling, West Virginia on October 18-20, 2022. Oglebay Resort is conveniently located near the Pittsburgh International Airport, the Southepointe office park, and the heart of unconventional shale activity. We acknowledge that your company and its employees have multiple options when selecting conferences to sponsor and attend and hence, we take your support of this conference very seriously and are appreciative of your consideration. Every year, we have counted on our generous sponsors to help cover the costs of this event, as all revenue from this event funds scholarships given to student chapters of the five sister SPE sections in Appalachia. The Ohio Petroleum Section has awarded $150,000 over the last 10 years in such scholarships. With your support, we hope to be able to maintain if not increase our gifts in the years to come.
We are excited to hold the meeting at a new venue and we think combining the traditional technical sessions, keynote address and networking opportunities you have come to expect from the ERM along with an in-depth panel discussion with key industry leaders, all set within the world class amenities of Oglebay Resort. Our hope is that this event will appeal to both new attendees and longtime supporters of this great annual tradition.
Sponsors will receive continued exposure starting from the time of sponsorship and extending beyond the completion of the meeting. We will utilize all of our basin wide section meetings, event website, social media and on site advertisements to thank and advertise our sponsoring partners as part of the event. At the meeting, sponsors will find their companies advertised in the registration area, exhibit halls, at all social outings, as well as special recognition at our keynote luncheon and closing remarks. The program committee will coordinate with our sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees to continually evolve the conference program and meet your expectations, and we are happy to facilitate any sponsorship opportunity or perk you and your organization may require to participate.
We thank you for your continued support and interest in SPE and its role in nurturing able, innovative, and technically competent leaders to succeed in our industry for years to come. We request you join our efforts to plan and host a successful meeting in an effort to demonstrate the resilience of our industry and its role in providing affordable, reliable, and abundant energy for the day-to-day lives of global citizens, now more than ever.
We look forward to seeing you at Oglebay in October!
