The 67th Annual Energy Executive Conference and Oilmen’s Golf Tournament at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel and Conference Centre delivered on its promise of being the industry’s 2017 networking event of the year, with our powerful lineup of impactful speakers that you can read about in the documentation found on our NEWS! Page of this website.

On Saturday, April 8 at the Executive Ball in Calgary the Theme for this year’s 67th Annual Conference was revealed as “Embrace It…Eh?”. With a cheeky nod to the “Canadian accent” in the year of our Sesquicentennial, this theme mirrors the growing movement that Canadians must stand proud – of our nation, our people, our industry, and our contributions to the world.

The Energy Business Forum’s “Nation Building” approach targeted opportunities in support of the ongoing issues that Canada faces within the global energy market. Once again, the Oilmen’s Golf Tournament followed upon its rich tradition of providing quality networking opportunities and great entertainment for Executives and their Partners.
