PHILADELPHIA--()--The Pennsylvania shale gas revolution is transforming the economic landscape statewide, and yet the greater Philadelphia region has been slow to recognize its impact. The Delaware Valley Marcellus Association (DVMA) is hosting a half-day seminar, which will provide local businesses with hands-on information about involving their companies in this tremendous energy play.
“Cashing in on Natural Gas – a Seminar for Business Leaders Who Want to Grow in the Marcellus”
“Cashing in on Natural Gas – a Seminar for Business Leaders Who Want to Grow in the Marcellus,” will be held on Wednesday, February 6 from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Malvern.
