Waterloo Region, October 21, 2015- The Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN) is pleased to partner with JuneWarren-Nickle’s Energy Group to present the Canadian Energy Technology Forum on Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2015 in Calgary, Alberta. Exploring the concept of the digital oilfield, the forum will bring together players and thought leaders from Canada’s digital companies to explore innovation with their colleagues in Canada’s energy sector.

“The energy landscape we know today is changing, “ said Avvey Peters, managing director of the Canadian Digital Media Network. “This is a critical time to understand how startups and mid-size technology companies can support the growth and success of big players in the energy sector. The forum will provide an opportunity to understand how to work together effectively.”

The forum will also mark the official release of the 2016 Digital Oil Outlook Report, highlighting ways new technologies and the ‘Internet of Things’ can help shape the oilfield of the future.

“These new technologies and trends will ultimately lead to efficiencies and cost savings, while improving health, safety, and environmental factors in the energy sector,” Peters said. “To remain effective and competitive, the time to be innovating is now.”

The 2015 forum speaker lineup includes Ian Glenn, CEO of ING Robotic Innovation; Mahyar Khosravi, business development manager at Cisco Systems Inc.; and Christina Waters, oil and gas software leader at GE Oil & Gas. Last year, the forum brought together more than 450 companies representing primary buyers such as Suncor, Nexen and Shell, service, supply and technology companies, and companies providing industry resources and support.
