Executives Pack the 9th Annual Energy Capital Conference

This March, 300+ attendees converged in Austin, Texas for Oil and Gas Investor's 9th annual Energy Capital Conference. Executives from E&P companies, financial institutions and private equity firms spent two days networking, strategizing and hearing from some of the industry's top experts.

Themed "The Push and Pull of Money," the conference featured over a dozen c-suite executive speakers and industry leaders who have successfully led and advised companies through past downturns. Attendees had the opportunity to explore opportunities for accessing capital, balance sheet management strategies, restructuring options, M&A activity and more.

Preceding the event, attendees engaged in small group discussions during a golf tournament on the Fazio Foothills Course. Following the tournament, attendees and speakers gathered for an welcome dinner featuring entertainment by longtime CBS commentator, former PGA Tour golfer and bestselling author, Gary McCord.
