Gain Approval to Attend

The 2017 event hosted nearly 500 attendees from 24 countries, and anticipate growth for 2018.  Attending the 22nd International Conference on Petroleum Data Integration, Information and Data Management could be pivotal to your company's further success in the petroleum industry.  If you need senior management's approval for travel and training expenditures, it's worth it to develop a proposal so you can attend the 2018 Petroleum Network Education Conferences in Houston, Texas. Here are 3 easy steps to gain approval to attend.

1. Do Your Research

Identify Conference Sessions (conference program will be available at a later date) that satisfy your professional goals and use our Interactive Floor Plan to locate exhibitors that address specific needs within your organization. Prepare a list of benefits that you can achieve by attending PNEC 2018.

Benefits of Attending

     • Build alliances among global petroleum professionals and resource stakeholders

     • Share real-world issues, best practices, developments, and cross discipline advances toward effective solutions that address industry demands

     • Gain a better understanding of current and future challenges affecting E&P data and information management

     • See the most comprehensive collection of petroleum product and service providers on the exhibit floor

     • Promote technology development to sustain the oil and gas industry

2. Show How Everyone Benefits  

Share your event goals with your department and demonstrate how your participation will help your team achieve their goals. Offer to give a presentation upon returning from the conference and exhibition to share any new ideas or products that you learned about during the event.

3. Gain Buy-In

Put your ideas in writing and submit a formal proposal to your department head. Include your intended schedule of educational sessions, solution-providers and why the knowledge gained will be valuable to your operation. Strengthen your proposal by listing department goals and the corresponding conference sessions. Also, list all areas where your department faces challenges and how your attendance will help you overcome these challenges. Don't forget to include the cost of airfare, meals and lodging in order to make it an all-inclusive proposal. Remember that your PNEC 2018 registration is an investment in the industry and will open the door for a wide range of business possibilities.
