EAST PETERSBURG, PA.— The National Association of Oil and Energy Service Professionals (OESP) will focus on the theme “Racing Towards Education" at its annual convention and trade show from May 19-23, 2013, at the HERSHEY Lodge, Hershey, Pa.

“We thought it would be fun to capture the excitement of a day at the horse races during our 2013 Convention,” said Judy Garber, OESP executive director. “And while we can’t promise actual horses, we can promise three great ‘races’ to help put your business and your career in the winner’s circle.”

The following events will be offered at the convention and trade show:

The Training and Education Stakes: Learn about NORA and NATE certifications and new ideas and tips from top industry presenters.

The New Products Derby: Learn about new products and how it can benefit your bottom line.

The Networking Cup: Catch up with old friends and industry peers at after-hour events.

OESP invites all industry professionals to sign up to attend the 2013 convention and trade show, featuring a variety of events including a trade show, seminars, fundraisers, an awards banquet, networking and more.
