Rex Murphy to Headline Oil Sands Trade Show & Conference
They call it “Rex Appeal.” Rex Murphy, Canada’s outspoken author and journalist will headline the keynote luncheon at the newly revamped Oil Sands Trade Show & Conference on September 12. The world’s ultimate gathering of the oil sands industry since 1985, the Show will run September 11 & 12 at Suncor Community Leisure Centre in Fort McMurray. As Rex says it via The National Post, “No other state or province, and no other single project has borne the weight of calumny and accusation as have Alberta and the oil sands. No campaigns against projects in China, India, the Middle East, the U.S. or Latin America have been of even near duration or intensity as their relentless crusade against Fort McMurray. The oil sands are as a pinprick in the world’s energy production, yet as the eco-Furies paint them, they are Armageddon’s launch pad.”
First Nation Leaders to Discuss Shift Towards the Next Generation of Oil Sands Production
What will does the next generation of oil sands look like? Jim Boucher, Chief of Fort McKay First Nation and Chairman of Fort McKay Group of Companies, and Archie Waquan, Chief of Mikisew Cree First Nation will discuss this important topic as part of the Oil Sands Trade Show & Conference Keynote Luncheon on Wednesday, September 11 at Suncor Community Leisure Centre in Fort McMurray.
EventWorx obviously believe in events, however the regular exhibition model seems ineffective. The regular model calls for organizations to pay a fee to exhibit and then typically rely on show management to market the show and attract an audience. Although unproven, we could likely use the 80/20 rule for passive versus active exhibitors at a trade show; meaning only 20% of the exhibitors are actively marketing their presence at a show; while 80% of exhibitors are hoping show management marketed the show very well. How can we improve the 80/20 rule? By paying our exhibitors for every visitor they bring into the show.
