The second annual Denver Prospect Fair & Technofest — a joint endeavor of the Denver Association of Petroleum Landmen (DAPL), the RMAG, and the Denver Geophysical Society (DGS) — was a resounding success that surpassed everyone’s expectations!
The venue at the Denver Convention Center added a new level of professionalism to our event, yet at the same time provided a comfortable atmosphere. Demand for booth space increased by 50 over last year, with 151 vendors exhibiting their wares. There were close to 1200 people viewing the new prospects and the latest technological advances. Everyone was also able to enjoy the great spread of food and beverages.
A special “Thank you” goes out to all of the sponsors for this year’s event. Although they are too numerous to mention in this article, the quality of the event, the directory disbursed to all participants, the entertainment, and many other aspects of this venue would not have been possible without their support.
Special mention needs to be made of Sandi Pellissier and Rosemary Bauer of the RMAG office staff and to Sandy Simon of the DAPL, all of who rose above and beyond the call of duty. Without their Herculean efforts, this event would not have been possible.
The committee’s goal is to strive to make the Denver Prospect Fair & Technofest a high quality, cost effective event on an annual basis that is to be enjoyed, appreciated, and valued by exhibitors and viewers alike. The success of this year’s event has the entire committee excited about planning next year’s venue. Hope to see you again at the Denver Convention Center on October 26, 2001!
