As event professionals, our job is to host people and while we can’t prepare for everything, it’s essential to develop an emergency plan that can be adapted to any situation. In Boston, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority’s (MCCA) Public Safety Team at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) and the Hynes Convention Center, have taken their experiences to develop a comprehensive crisis management training program, starting with crisis communications.
2014 OKC Oilfield Expo
2014-10-01 - 2014-10-02
The 2014 OKC Oilfield Expo will take place October 1-2, 2014 at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, OK. This expo is an industry-exclusive trade show focused on creating a professional atmosphere where oilfield professionals from Oklahoma and beyond can gather, network, view the latest technology, compare hundreds of service and equipment suppliers and negotiate their best deals. For exhibitors, this means more qualified contacts walking the floor, a greater opportunity to expand and solidify their network of buyers and a better chance of making enough sales on the show floor to cover their trade show investment and then some. For attendees, that means filling the show floor with exhibitors whose products and services can help them operate more efficiently and cost-effectively. There are a lot of businesses that would like to get their products in front of energy buyers, but we limit participants to those companies that are relevant to our attendees' interest. Another part of creating that professionals atmosphere is limiting the practices of brief-casing or trick-or-treating. Non-exhibiting attendees who distribute sales materials and attendees who fill goody bags to brim are asked to leave the show. It's one more way we work to protect the investment of all of our participants and maintain the integrity of the show to continually represent a good investment for attendees and exhibitors.

This policy is in place to ensure the maximum relevance of attendees for our show and to protect the investments of our exhibitors and sponsors.
