The paper "The Australian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference" is a perfect example of a business case study. The report below provides a review of four important business events that will take place in Perth within a period of one year. The events will include two conferences or meetings and two trade shows or exhibitions. The review will entail analyzing the purpose of the events, the expected benefits to Western Australia, the approach used to market the events, and the key stakeholders of those events. Current literature was utilized in the compilation of this report. Upcoming Event 1: The Australian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference Description This conference will take place at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre between 22nd February 2017 and 24th February 2017.
The Australian Oil and Gas (AOG) Company is a state-owned parastatal formed for the purpose of exploring both conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon accumulations, in the ten Australian sedimentary offshore basins. Oil and gas are major natural resources that significantly contribute to the economy of Australia thus their discovery attracted and motivated the key stakeholders of this company, (Australian Oil and Gas Company, 2016) The scheduling of the conference during the last week of February 2017 is ideal and will provide an opportunity for the company to showcase the diversity of the company’ s operations as well as the successful contributions of the company since its inception.
Over the years, the company has become a major source of attraction to contemporary stakeholders both in Australia and across the globe including countries that do not produce oil (Louw, 2012). Australia’ s offshore basins contain enormous deposits of hydrocarbon compounds with several multinational corporations expressing their interest in exploring this natural resource.
Naturally occurring oil is a valuable product in the oil and gas industry with widespread uses both locally and internationally.
