Greetings from GeoConvention 2019!

The oil and gas industry has been completely reshaped over the past four years and despite market fluctuations, Geoscientists will continue to find and develop the resources necessary to power our economy.

GeoConvention offers some of the best local and international insights to efficient energy exploration and production, critical to the success of the industry and provides an opportunity for delegates and exhibitors to benefit from and give back to the community, through Technical Sessions, Posters, the Showcase Stage and the Exhibition floor.

Skill Fundamentals and Applied Case Studies will also be integrated into the 2019 program, focusing on key geoscience fundamentals with real-life application.

New Initiatives

GeoConvention 2019 has targeted advanced knowledge sharing from the poster program by doubling the presentation time allotted for each poster and hosting presentations during the morning and afternoon coffee breaks.

In another initiative to provide learning opportunities, many meters of core samples will be added to the 2019 GeoConvention Exhibit Floor with a new core being featured every day. Sponsored by Digit Core and Tarcore Labs and provided by the Core Research facility, the core samples will allow everyone to expand their knowledge from key Canadian plays via tangible, physical samples.

The GeoConvention Mobile App will be back as a resource for all delegates and attendees to plan their day, gain insights to our technical content and presenters and to engage in the conference through in-conference games to win prizes.

Sponsorship and Exhibits

With all financial support – be it attendance, exhibition, sponsorship or advertising – going not only to helping ensure a successful convention, but too, going directly back to our partner societies to help with their education programs and student and community outreach, partnering with GeoConvention is guaranteed to not only return for our supporters but also in the advancement of the geosciences.

GeoConvention will continue to focus on the return our supporters achieve from joining us – be it through sponsorship, exhibition, or both, we are committed to continue growing, adapting and building on our successes as we continue to work with all of our supporters to build their brand, market their technology or introduce their workflows to our expected 3,500 attendees.
