Questions, Anyone?

NAPE has always been the place the upstream oil and gas industry comes together. Due to COVID-19 concerns and restrictions on gatherings and travel, we are adapting NAPE Summit to a hybrid event. We will host NAPE Summit in person at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston and virtually on the NAPE Network.

The health and safety of all NAPE participants is extremely important as is the ability to connect and reconnect with industry colleagues, continue to conduct business and help invigorate the industry and economy. Whether attendees choose to attend in-person or online, the hybrid NAPE will ensure all attendees have access to the oil and gas prospects/producing properties, education, networking and dealmaking opportunities found only at NAPE expos.

What safety measures are being taken at the in-person event?

We are working closely with the GRB Convention Center and the Houston First team to ensure we provide a safe and secure environment for our attendees. Numerous new safety provisions are being added, such as: modifying the expo floor to allow for 10-foot separation between each booth; implementing new sanitation and disinfection measures; enhancing the registration process to enable faster badge pickup; and requiring temperature screenings and face masks for entrance and ensuring social distancing protocols are followed throughout the event.
