What Is The Oil And Gas Sponsorship Program?

The Oil and Gas industry is a specialized Market here in Alberta. Oil and Gas professionals love to network with each other are looking for opportunities to make connections with strategic partners and collaborate their efforts on many projects.

The CIBN can offer an opportunity for making connections. We host dinner parties, organize specialized events and help bring our members together to meet the needs of the Oil and Gas community.

To be an Oil and Gas Sponsor one must have at least an Ambassador Level of Sponsorship with the CIBN, and some of the larger corporations are more interested at a Guardian Level of Sponsorship. We then customize a program specifically for your needs and help you gain access to other members and sponsors that will be critical for your ongoing success. We can even assist you in preparing a scholarship program above the initial levels of sponsorship whereby we can put on contests within the universities and colleges if you have a desire to give into the educational community of our city.
