Event Overview:

NAPE is the oil and gas industry’s marketplace for the buying, selling and trading of prospects and for producing properties.

Held every February in Houston, the annual NAPE Summit is a networking event that brings together all the players necessary to forge, facilitate and close deals. In the upstream oil and gas business, it is the largest and most successful event of its kind in the world.

This massive four-day event offers prospects, producers and purchasers a unique chance to connect, reconnect and make deals. For those who seek to be successful in the upstream oil and gas business, the NAPE Summit is a “must attend” event that has the potential to open up a myriad of new and unexpected opportunities.

In addition to the 14.66 acres of exhibition space for deal making, the event is broken out into sessions that bring together respected and renowned speakers, vendors and attendees.

Attendee Information:


In the upstream oil and gas business, NAPE stands alone as the biggest, best and most respected venue for networking, meeting your peers and making deals.

Our attendance has steadily grown over the past years, and our 2015 events promise to be our biggest yet. Projected attendance for upcoming events is estimated as follows:

  • NAPE Summit attendance: 17,000
  • NAPE Summit exhibitors: 1,000
  • NAPE Pittsburgh, Houston and Denver show attendance: 11,000

These numbers, based on 2014 figures and factoring in increases in preregistration, suggest that 2015 will be a banner year for NAPE and its attendees. Reserve your place early and register today!

Exhibit Information:


Let’s be frank: There is no shortage of conventions, expos and events in the oil and gas industry.

But if you compete in the upstream oil and gas business, NAPE offers you an unparalleled opportunity to meet decision makers in an environment that is fun, energetic and, most of all, very serious about getting business done.

Our annual NAPE Summit brings 17,000 prospects for four days, during which they expect to see the industry’s latest and greatest ideas, products and services. And our three additional expos give you a unique opportunity to network with people and players in a particular region and keep you abreast of the latest news and developments in that area.

About NAPE:

NAPE was launched by the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL) in 1993 with one purpose in mind: To create a venue that brings prospects and purchasers together. Our first event was a modest affair, with 80 booths and 800 attendees. But our novel idea was destined to grow as more and more oil and gas professionals realized that NAPE addressed a critical need that no other organizations adequately addressed.

Over the years, AAPL attracted additional partners who are leading forces in the world of oil exploration: The Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA), The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), and The American Association of Exploration Geologists (AAPG).

Today, we currently host four annual expos that are recognized throughout the industry as “must attend” events for those who are serious about doing business.
