Halifax, Nova Scotia—October 16-18 The Fourth Annual Canadian Offshore Resources Exposition and Conference (CORE) will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, October 16- 18, 1984 at Ocean Terminals 23, 24, 31, 32, 33, and 34, and in the Immigration Annex building, all facilities of the Port of Halifax. Since its beginning in 1981, CORE has become Canada's leading annual event devoted exclusively to the technical requirements of the offshore oil and gas exploration and development industry.
At last year's exposition, some 530 firms from 13 countries exhibited their products and services. More than 600 companies will be exhibiting at this year's CORE, and attendance at the three-day event is expected to top 9,000. A threemorning conference beld at the Halifax World Trade Center in conjunction with the exhibition will feature the latest technologies of offshore exploration and production of oil and gas in an environment that is considered one of the most hostile in the world.
This year the CORE exhibition will be opened by the Premier of Nova Scotia, the Honorable John Buchanan. The Minister of Energy for the Government of Nova Scotia, the Honorable Joel Matheson, will officially open the conference.
CORE is sponsored by: Atlantic Provinces Economic Council; Canadian Ocean Industries Association; Cape Breton Offshore Trade Association; Newfoundland Ocean Industries Association; Offshore Trade Association of Nova Scotia; and Oilweek magazine. It is managed and produced by Industrial Trade Shows Inc. of Toronto. The Governments of Alberta, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec, as well as six Federal ministries, sponsor major exhibits at the show.
More than C$2 billion has been committed for exploration activity off Nova Scotia since the signing of the Federal/Provincial agreement in March 1982. Venture development and the transmission pipeline will require C$4 billion in capital investment.
This activity in Nova Scotia's offshore sector has attracted worldwide attention—the reason that CORE has grown, in only three years, to be the third largest annual trade show of its kind in the world.
Employment in Nova Scotian offshore activity now numbers more than 2,000 people. This contributes significantly to the increased prosperity of the Province generally. According to Premier Buchanan, the Government of Nova Scotia is undertaking extensive changes in its training programs to insure that Nova Scotians are well trained to take advantage of this opportunity.
