Message from the Chairman
The Pipeline and Energy Expo has unveiled a new logo with brand standards to reflect the annual event’s focus on Oklahoma’s leadership role in a forward-thinking energy industry.
“The new TPE logo really speaks to where we are going as an industry,” said Bill Solomon, chairman of The Pipeline and Energy Expo. “We’re not just zeroing in on oil and gas. We’re also looking at the importance of water energy, wind energy and clean energy, and how these sources factor as a whole into the success of the Oklahoma business community. The very best companies in these business sectors are in Oklahoma, and play a key role in the support of TPE.”
Building on the success of prior events, The Pipeline and Energy Expo, formerly known as the Tulsa Pipeline Expo, is also broadening its reach with offers of year-round learning and networking opportunities intended to encourage energy related service providers doing business in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and across the state.
Solomon said an important part of the Expo’s mission is to educate the marketplace and complement regional initiatives. He looks at the Expo as an opportunity to help strengthen the overall business climate in Oklahoma, and attract out-of-state businesses that may consider establishing a permanent presence in the state.
The Pipeline & Energy Expo began in 2009 with a strong group of individuals and businesses dedicated to a common mission to promote Oklahoma’s energy industry. With the outstanding support and extensive network of many area businesses, it continues to grow, highlighting the demand and excitement for keeping Oklahoma businesses thriving.
The Expo was developed by Vacuworx Global, a Tulsa-based manufacturing company. It is a member of the Tulsa Metro Chamber and is accredited by the Better Business Bureau of Eastern Oklahoma.
The state of Oklahoma has a very rich heritage in the oil and gas industry. Although the energy industry has experienced difficult times in past years, Oklahoma has continued to generate thriving businesses that serve the energy needs around the world.
The Mission of The Pipeline & Energy Expo is to raise awareness of our state’s rich heritage in the energy industry, and to showcase products and services of the many Oklahoma businesses that keep our state strong.
