Another successful Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show is in the books. It wrapped this week in Weyburn.

The show was sold out to exhibitors according to show manager Tanya Hulbert.

"We're really happy with the turn out that we had. We got 265 exhibitors, which is a full show for us, and we had almost 4,000 people in total come through our show," she said. 

Hulbert says the number of attendees are a bit different this year than at other recent shows.

"They're down slightly but from the feedback that we've got from our exhibitors everybody who came was an important industry personel that they were happy to speak to and see and was making an impact on their business and they were happy with the results that they got from the show."

Prior to the grand opening of this year's show, Hulbert said they typically had about 5,000 attendees from all over Canada the United States and usually a few from countries much further away.

Highlights from this year's show include groups of school children touring the show to learn about the oil and gas industry from exhibitors and the new Southeast Saskatchewan Oilfield Legends award category. Those were given out Wednesday.

"It was good. It was touching. The one guy was almost crying," said Hulbert.

The biennial industry show ran Wednesday and Thursday this year and was held at Crescent Point Place and on the Fair Grounds in the opportunity city. The show will return to the Opportunity City in 2019.
