Learn what you need to know about the present and the future of Utica oil and gas exploration at Utica Upstream, a production of the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce and Shale Directories, on April 6 at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

We are entering our fifth year of oil and gas business development programming. We lead off with a conference where experts — among them a business analyst, a university economist, a state regulator and an oil and gas producer — look at what you can expect from the business in this second year of low commodity prices.

If you have attended in the past, you know that we produce highly informative regional conferences on subjects that businesses in Utica Shale country need to understand. The Canton Regional Chamber is proud to be the only chamber of commerce in Ohio that consistently offers these oil and gas education programs, and we typically draw an audience from throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
