Attendee Testimonials

“The UP Conference was well organized and had a good flow of presentations that related to upstream planning. I enjoyed listening to the many relevant use-case examples.”

“There are so few opportunities for corporate & business planners to network & share experiences. It’s the perfect time to grow and learn a thing or two about their craft. This conference fills a big void.”

“Thank you for holding this free event for the energy industry. I learned a lot about new technologies and best practices from numerous energy companies which has helped us to advance.”

“The UP Conference showed really positive industry participation and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the different perspectives & presentations from operators.”

"We loved the format of the UP Conference. Now that we know it is truly an industry conference, we plan to encourage more executives from our company to attend."
