|OIL & GAS INDUSTRY TO GITA: DO THE CONFERENCE!
UPDATE FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR BOB SAMBORSKI ...
We are very pleased to announce that the 2012 Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference will be held Oct. 22-24 in Houston as originally scheduled!
An agreement with Willbros Engineers of Kansas City, Mo., to guarantee critical obligations involved with the conference will enable GITA to continue plan, produce and conduct this year's event. The conference is considered an important oil and gas pipeline industry event by practitioners, suppliers and solution providers who have supported the conference for over 20 years. Many of these organizations expressed disappointment that the conference had been canceled. Over the last several weeks, Willbros took the lead in helping to find a solution. GITA gratefully acknowledges their contributions by recognizing Willbros Engineers as the Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference Patron.
The Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference will be planned and organized exactly as it has been in the past and conducted under the auspices of the Geospatial Information & Technology Association. GITA will work with the existing conference committee to develop the best unbiased educational program possible. The exhibit floor will be promoted and managed as it has been in the past. All registrations and sponsorships will be accepted through the association's website. Abstracts are still being accepted, with the deadline for submission extended.
Over the past several weeks, many of you — exhibitors, sponsors and past attendees — have let us know how valuable you have found this conference. We are extremely grateful for your support, and we are going to redouble our efforts to make the 2012 conference one to remember! While we are completely focused on this year's event, we will continue to work with our industry partners to determine what the future holds. Additional information will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
In the meantime, make plans for October in Houston!
