Held every February in Houston, the annual NAPE Summit is a networking event that brings together all the players necessary to forge, facilitate and close deals. In the upstream oil and gas business, it is the largest and most successful event of its kind in the world.

This massive three-day event offers prospects, producers and purchasers a unique chance to connect, reconnect and make deals. For those who seek to be successful in the upstream oil and gas business, the NAPE Summit is a “must attend” event that has the potential to open up a myriad of new and unexpected opportunities.

In addition to the 14.66 acres of exhibition space for deal making, the event is broken out into sessions that bring together respected and renowned speakers, vendors and attendees.

Please be aware that NAPE does not provide our attendee’s information to outside parties. If you receive a notice offering to sell you NAPE attendee information, this offer is not provided or approved by NAPE.



This year’s expo will draw thousands of attendees and hundreds of exhibitors. If there’s product or service to be bought or sold in the upstream oil and gas business, you’ll find it at our expo.
