Brandon is set to host a conference showcasing business and trade opportunities associated with the oil and gas boom taking place in Manitoba and across the U.S. border in North Dakota and Montana.
The Brandon Chamber of Commerce and the World Trade Centre Winnipeg, in collaboration with the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce, have partnered to organize a one-day conference at the Keystone Centre’s UCT Pavilion on Feb. 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The conference will highlight business opportunities in the oil sector in Manitoba and deliver a seminar designed to help Manitoba companies access opportunity in North Dakota and Montana.
“If you are doing business in the oil industry, want to do business in the oil industry or just want to know more about the oil play in Manitoba and across the border and how it affects your business, this is a must attend event,” Brandon Chamber of Commerce president Craig Senchuk said in a press release.
Dan MacLean, CEO and president of Tundra Oil and Gas Ltd., Manitoba’s largest oil producer, will headline the roster of industry leaders and expert speakers discussing the current status of the Bakken oilfield, needs created by rapid development in the sector, and what lies ahead.
There will also be a “tapping opportunity in the Bakken” seminar in the afternoon.
