GPA Midstream Convention Moves To September In 2021
By DJ Slater09 December 2020
The coronavirus pandemic continues to not only impact the dates of industry shows but has also forced one association to change the timing of its annual event.
The GPA Midstream Association has pushed its GPA Midstream Convention from April to September, with its 2021 event set to occur from Sept. 26-29 in San Antonio, Texas. The association, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2021, hopes the later date next year will ensure the show can occur in person. The association canceled the 2020 event.
All future GPA Midstream Conventions will take place in September in San Antonio through 2026.
“With promising COVID vaccines on the way and corporate America adapting responsibly to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines, we’re optimistic about being able to host a safe, healthy and successful in-person convention in September,” said Joel Moxley, GPA Midstream president and CEO. “Pushing the dates back gives everybody more time to prepare and make prudent decisions around convention participation.”
“I’m confident everyone is ready for a return to some sense of normalcy in the new year, and I think this exciting news is a great start for our industry,” said GPA Midstream Chairman of the Board Bill Ward, senior vice president, Superior Pipeline.
Founded in 1921, GPA Midstream provides the midstream sector with advocacy, safety, technical standards, education and training.
The GPA Midstream Convention attracts midstream professionals from all levels with an agenda focused around three tracks – advocacy, commercial and technical – and with program topics and presenters selected by a panel of industry peers.
