The 9th Annual Marcellus and Manufacturing Development Conference is changing formats to meet health and safety demands as a result of COVID-19. Still the same great content, the eConference plays host to local, regional ad national experts and leaders, on a safe and easy to use online format.
Online attendees will learn from experts with presentations providing a look into the future of oil and gas, downstream manufacturing challenges and opportunities, regional sustainability, legal and technical updates and more!
From the President
Thank you for your willingness to be part of our Ninth Annual Marcellus and Manufacturing Development Conference (MMDC). Even in these challenging times, it is important to remember that the Appalachian region is emerging as a world energy leader while the long-term opportunities for downstream manufacturing provide a clear path forward for lasting economic growth and job creation. Even though COVID-19 prevents us from gathering, we know that it is critical to continue to build the momentum for downstream manufacturing in our region.
The 2020 MMDC explores our country’s energy portfolio, priorities and challenges, a vision for downstream development, legal and technical issues and more. In our three event eConference we’ll hear the forecast for future natural gas related growth, take a look at risk assessment, receive updates from state officials.
We appreciate the value you place on the educational and networking opportunities presented by the ninth year of our MMDC and are committed to bringing everyone back together for our 10th Annual conference in Morgantown in April 2021. We are grateful for the support of our sponsors and MMDC partners. We hope to see you in-person at our next event when we are beyond COVID-19, but are grateful that you will join us virtually. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy!
Rebecca R. McPhail, President
West Virginia Manufacturers Association
