SIMSA Members Meet Face-to-Face with Procurement Staff at GPS

Saskatchewan Industrial Suppliers Association (SIMSA) members, were able to meet face-to-face with the procurement staff of Crescent Point, Enbridge, and TransCanada during the SIMSA “speed networking event” at the Global Petroleum Show (GPS) in Calgary on June 14th, 2017.  And that evening, SIMSA members, were able to network with oil executives, procurement persons at the Saskatchewan Reception.

At the speed networking event, the procurement staff were stationed around the room; SIMSA members had a strictly-timed 5-minutes with each of them, before having to move-along to the next person (sort of like speed dating).

Following the speed networking event, the Saskatchewan Reception was co-hosted by the Government of Saskatchewan and SIMSA.

At the event, SIMSA members were addressed by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) President; CEO Tim McMillan, as well as Saskatchewan’s Minister of Energy and Resources Tim Dustin Duncan; and SIMSA’s Executive Director Eric Anderson.
