CONFERENCE FORMAT CHANGE

We’re Going Virtual!

Due to social distancing and large group gathering restrictions, CI’s 20th Annual Arctic Oil & Gas Symposium has changed format from a live, in-person event to an interactive, virtual conference.

The conference will follow a similar schedule and agenda as originally planned.

Connect with key northern stakeholders for crucial insight on the future of Arctic activity, and opportunities for Canada in the global energy sector.

CI Energy Group is pleased to announce the 20th Anniversary of the Arctic Oil & Gas Symposium, in a new and fully virtual interactive format. This anticipated annual event has brought together hundreds of the major players in northern resource development for candid discussions and information sharing on regulatory issues and new business opportunities.

Join us this October 6-7, 2020 to gain greater clarity on the direction from new Federal and Territorial governments, learn about advancements in infrastructure, the impact of changing climate patterns, and what is required to overcome the challenges of moving forward with new projects.

Whether you are new to this event or eager to return this is your best opportunity to meet the leaders and decision makers from government, industry and Indigenous communities. Ensure you are part of the critical discussions on Canada’s role in global energy markets and the future of sustainable resource development.
