Exploring the Heart of NAPE with King Operating Corporation


Exploring the Heart of NAPE with King Operating Corporation

Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with industry heavyweights, Le'Ann Callihan, VP of AAPL & NAPE, and Drew Guntert, Director of NAPE Expo LP, for a special episode of my podcast, "The Jay Young Show." We got to the heart of the oil and gas world, focusing on the incredible journey of the North American Prospect Expo (NAPE) and the tricks of the trade that make it a must-attend for global dealmakers.

From its humble beginnings with just 70 booths in 1993, NAPE has grown into a powerhouse event that draws key players from the oil and gas industry worldwide. Le'Ann, Drew, and I discussed the factors behind this growth, shedding light on the strategies and collaborative efforts that turned NAPE into the vibrant hub it is today—an inspiring journey reflecting the resilience and innovation of our industry. You can watch the full episode here.

At this year’s Expo, King Operating Corporation is not just a spectator; we're right in the thick of it. I'm excited to announce our active participation in the event, bringing a couple of exciting deals to the table. To find out all about those, be sure to come to our booth (2611), which is near registration. You cannot miss us.

In addition, we have plans to film some exclusive episodes of "The Jay Young Show" directly from NAPE. This presents a fantastic opportunity to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the action, offering insights and perspectives that you won't find anywhere else.

I invite you to join us on this journey at NAPE that promises not just knowledge but some really good deals and maybe even a few surprises along the way.
