GITA's Oil and Gas Conference Is On!

Posted: Aug. 3, 2018
Greetings to our previous Exhibitors and Sponsors,
 
Just in case you missed my earlier emails, I am excited to announce that GITA has partnered with Gulf Energy Information to produce the Pipeline Technology Forum, including GITA's 27th Annual Oil and Gas Pipeline Conference!  This new event replaces "Pipeline Week" as GITA's pipeline focused conference.
 
The Pipeline Technology Forum is Tuesday, October 16 and Wednesday, October 17, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Houston, located in downtown Houston, TX.
 
For attendees, the Pipeline Technology Forum will feature general sessions, technical presentations on the use of geospatial technologies, pipeline software and other applied technologies for the industry.  Additionally, attendees will visit the exhibit hall to see demonstrations of products and services and to attend most of the networking functions.
 
For exhibitors, the Pipeline Technology Forum will feature an exhibit hall designed for networking with key industry professionals.  The two-day conference format maximizes exhibit time - attendees will have access to the hall for 13.5 hours. Additionally, exhibit staff may attend the sessions and panel discussions.
 
The conference name has changed, however, GITA's commitment to you and the geospatial industry remain the same.
 
Thank you for your support over the years!  It is our hope that you will continue to support GITA and our annual event.

Feel free to reach out to me directly, or

Regards - Mark
 
Director & President GITA
