The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) 2020 Annual Convention and Exhibition (ACE) will be held 7–10 June, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.

Houston, the “Energy Capital of the World,” is the headquarters and the intellectual capital for virtually every segment of the energy industry including exploration, production, transmission, marketing, supply, and technology. The city truly embraces all things energy and geoscience, which makes it the ideal location to host ACE 2020 and attract a global audience of some 5000 professionals from more than 72 countries to exchange technical ideas, research, and innovations.

ACE continues as one of the most prestigious events for the geosciences community with a tradition of delivering an exceptionally strong, juried technical programme, state-of-the-art technology displays and networking activities that create a dependable, fun and valuable business forum. Founded over a century ago, AAPG was built upon the expertise and knowledge of many of the world’s most prominent and successful geoscientists. The traditions of scientific excellence and professional camaraderie carry on when the Association’s flagship event returns to Houston.
