Is this an anti-fossil fuel initiative?
Our goal is to engage the very best of the oil and gas industry because we believe in pragmatic and profitable solutions to the world's greatest energy challenges. We believe the oil and gas industry will continue to play an important role in future global energy and this is why it is so important we harness the powerful potential of breakthrough technology to improve profitability and efficiency, and to reduce our environmental footprint. Hydrocarbons are an immensely useful and valuable commodity. We want to showcase the best of the Canadian oil and gas ingenuity on a global stage.
Is this just another oil and gas event?
We believe our future energy mix will be broad and eclectic. This is why we are working together with the key individuals from all sources of energy. It is also important to recognise the energy challenges we face today stretch way beyond fossil fuel extraction and production. We need to work together to find pragmatic solutions across all industries.
How do I get there?
Located between two CTrain stations, Erlton and Victoria Park, Stampede Park can be accessed by regular CTrain and bus service. Skip the ticket vending machine line-ups and save time purchasing fares by buying your pass on My Fare, Calgary Transit's mobile ticketing app. You can download the app any time and buy your pass right when you need it. For details visit calgarytransit.com/MyFare.
There is ongoing construction at the Stampede park and surrounding areas for the next few months. The impact is quite significant if you are coming from 12th ave into the main gate - it will be closed fo the duration of the event. There is a detour but we recommend guests should use the south entrance as the road is also blocked on Stampede trail in front of the Nutrien.
