Bakken Oil Workers & Oil Service Expo
The rapid and continuous growth caused by the Bakken Boom has brought new companies and services to the region in an unusually fast and furious pace. This growth pace has not allowed for the natural “get to know your community" that happens under normal times and in the course of conducting daily business. The Bakken Oil Workers & Oil Service Expo will bring these entities together to meet each other, exchange ideas, and find new partners and services they didn’t know were in the region. These new community formations will help to solve common issues and meet the new and growing business demands of all parties doing business in the Bakken. The North Dakota State Fair Center in Minot has been reserved as the venue for this unique event. This will be the most inclusive, all-encompassing Bakken-oil-related event to date!
The Bakken Oil Workers & Oil Service Expo will gather together oil companies, oil products and service suppliers, and supporting business who are servicing the Bakken now, as well as companies and organizations planning to bring business to the region in the future. Unlike typical oil industry shows, this show will include vendors presenting products and services of particular interest to oil workers. These vendors will showcase cold weather equipment and supplies, shower and laundry services, small-living-space products, food and nutrition, money management services, communications products and services, clothing and gear, and all-terrain vehicles to name just a few. Businesses and services related to community growth and infrastructure support are also a part of this event. Addressing community issues, along with the unique needs of the oil industry and the rugged individuals who work in the industry will benefit not only the oilfield workers, but their families and employers, the communities they live in, and the industry as a whole. Our hope is to help foster bonds and good will that will last far beyond the duration of the Expo.
