Members of the energy sector from all over the world are in Calgary for the next three days for the annual Global Petroleum Show.

Nearly 65,000 people registered for this year’s event, which features more than 2,000 exhibitors.

"As one of the largest energy exhibitions in the world, we are very excited to be welcoming so many international attendees and exhibitors to Calgary," said Wes Scott of DMG Events, which is organizing the show.

"In addition to providing a remarkable networking and business opportunity to our exhibitors and attendees, GPS showcases Calgary as an energy leader, and the innovation taking place within the energy industry today. It is the perfect city to host an energy event of this magnitude."

The show is expected to draw $8.9 billion worth of business transactions to the province, organizers said.

Events take place at Stampede Park, the Telus Convention Centre and other downtown venues from June 10 to 12.

Calgary first hosted the Global Petroleum Show in 1968.
