Expo Coming to Eastern Gateway for Businesses Preparing for Oil and Gas Industry
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio -
The oil and gas industry is taking off here in the tri-state area. In fact, an expo will be held at Eastern Gateway Community College.
It's being called "Boomtown Panel." Basically, it's for businesses that are trying to expand.
The reason for the event is to educate business as more oil and gas companies move into the area.
"The point is to bring in five panelists from other areas of the country who have experienced a similar economic boom which is happening in some cases," said Matt Steele of the Oil and Gas Association.
This is not open to the public and it is only for business owners. It will be held Thursday evening at 6 p.m.
WTRF.com will be there and let you know what happens.
