CALGARY, Sept. 21 /CNW/ - The renowned Oil Sands Trade Show & Conference returns to Northlands Agricom in Edmonton on September 22 and 23, with a focused exhibition and expanded two-day Conference. Topics of discussion will put the spotlight on solutions for mining, plant efficiencies and cost reductions, in situ, regulation and environmental matters.

Show organizers chose 'Optimal Outcomes' as the show theme in response to comments and requests from industry players for an increased focus on solutions and tactics for succeeding in an unstable economy, in addition to keeping an eye on environmental concerns.

"That being said, feedback from past participants indicated that we needed to gear this year's conference towards innovative solutions to aid the recovery of our provinces most profitable industry. The Oil Sands Trade Show & Conference is an opportunity to take in the exhibition, presentations and seminars that will allow attendees to network with more than 5,000 oil sands professionals from local and international destinations."
