The Oilfield Services Investment Symposium is an annual event that is
held by the Petroleum Services Association of Canada (PSAC). The intent
is to bring the institutional investment community together to hear
presentations by over 30 oilfield service companies. The desired result
is increased investment in these companies. The event is held proximal
to the date of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producer’s
The intent is to attract as many of the
institutional investment community as possible so that the presenting
companies have opportunity to display their investment potential. A
fee is charged to attend and to present. Delegates (from around the
world) are then housed in hotels and fed. Screening of delegates to
ensure their position as investors was required. The conference lasted
two full days. Approximately 150 investors attended with another 150
representatives from the presenting companies themselves.
Organize the entire event. This meant
facility management, securing of presenting companies, attraction and
screening of investor-delegates, schedule of presentation, audio visual
support, banquet, special reception management and financial control.
This job also involved arranging hotel accommodation for the investor-delegates
and close liaison with the hotel on all matters.
Over 30 companies presented their stories,
which was consistent with recent years. Given the downturn in the oil
industry (and oil prices) at the time, this was considered a great turnout.
The delegate list was also a good one. The two day event itself ran
very smoothly with no glitches in AV and good opportunities for companies
to succeed. From a financial perspective the event turned a profit of
over $100,000. This was twice as much as any previous Investment Symposium
and was deemed a great success. The delegate evaluations also reflected
an opinion of success.
