One of the great things about being in the oil and gas capital of the world is that eventually everyone comes our way. This will be the case again in April when the AAPG Annual Convention & Exhibition (American Association of Petroleum Geologists) comes to the George R. Brown Convention Center, literally right around the corner from our 1517 San Jacinto location downtown The event will be held April 6-9.
AAPG is now nearly 100 years old, having been founded back in 1917. It’s the world’s largest organization for professional geologists with more than 34,000 members. But the association isn't just for geologists. Members include geophysicists, managers, CEOs, consultants, academics, even students.
The AAPG annual convention on average attracts nearly 7000 attendees from all over the world. The technical program provided at the event draws professionals from 78 countries and is international in its appeal. Keep an eye out for the AAPG Global Gateway and International Pavillion.
