Bonnyville & District Oil and Gas Show postponed to 2023

The Bonnyville & District Oil and Gas has been postponed until 2023.

“We were so optimistic that a lifting of restrictions would mean a successful event, however, the reality is that we all still need time to recover,” said Serina Parsons, the executive director of the Bonnyville and District Chamber of Commerce in a statement on April 5.

The Bonnyville and District Chamber of Commerce said, “While we regain hope and optimism for what the future holds for our business community and the Bonnyville Chamber of Commerce, as we move to a post-pandemic world, the reality is that the effects are still present and far-reaching.”

“While the price of oil is on the rise and businesses within the industry are seeing an uptake in profitability and more contacts. The reality is these businesses are still in recovery mode, doing more with less has become the new norm, which means labor shortages are still a reality, and growth and profits are only just beginning,” Serina Parsons Executive Director of the Bonnyville Chamber of Commerce said. “It is for this reason that the Bonnyville chamber has decided to postpone the Bonnyville and District Oil and Gas Show to June of 2023.”

Parson said, “By allowing more time for recovery, and ensuring more stability within our community and within our economy, we are ensuring that the Bonnyville oil and gas show will continue to be successful for the chamber, its participants, and the community as a whole.”

This event is known for its hospitality, oilmen’s room, amazing networking, and opportunity for business growth and connections.

“This time allows us to ensure our expectations are not compromised, and that all those involved get the quality they expect from the event,” Parsons said.

The new dates for the show are June 14 and 15 2023 and registration will remain open for those interested in registering.
