Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper to Keynote Business Conference at NAPE Denver 2015

Rocky Mountain region’s largest oil and gas upstream prospect expo set for Dec. 9-10 in Denver

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper will keynote the NAPE Business Conference on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. Part of NAPE, the largest oil and gas upstream prospect expo in the U.S., NAPE Denver 2015 and the NAPE Business Conference will connect attendees with firsthand knowledge of oil and gas opportunities and prospects primarily throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

“Gov. Hickenlooper has been a consistent advocate for responsible oil and gas development through the adherence to the highest ethical standards, values shared by the American Association of Professional Landmen and NAPE partners,” said Jeanine Piskurich, Chair of the NAPE Operators Committee. “The energy industry continues to be a key driver of economic growth and prosperity throughout the Rocky Mountain region thanks largely to his efforts, and we’re excited to have him join us at the NAPE Business Conference.”

A lifetime entrepreneur, Gov. Hickenlooper was elected mayor of Denver in 2003 and was named among the top five big-city mayors in America by TIME magazine in 2005. When he was inaugurated governor of Colorado in 2011, Hickenlooper became the first Denver mayor to be elected governor in 150 years as well as the first geologist to be elected governor in America’s history. Gov. Hickenlooper’s goal is to create the most pro-business state government, but with the highest environmental and ethical standards.

Taking place Dec. 9-10, NAPE Denver 2015 will feature the expo’s new faster-paced, streamlined format. The Business Conference will be held Wednesday, Dec. 9 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., with Gov. Hickenlooper presenting at 11:15 a.m. The NAPE Exhibit Floor will open immediately after the Business Conference for the first time at NAPE Denver.
