Mark your calendar and join us on March 23-24, 2016 in Charleston, West Virginia for the 2016 WVMA Marcellus and Manufacturing Development Conference (MMDC).

The MMDC combines the former M2M Conference and the WVMA Leadership Summit (Annual Meeting) to offer attendees an opportunity to attend one or both Marcellus development and manufacturing development tracks.

The West Virginia Manufacturers Association Conference will be held in connection with the WV Construction Design Expo and the West Virginia Department of Commerce.

Now in its fifth year, the Marcellus and Manufacturing Development Conference, plays host to companies interested in locating new facilities or expanding existing operations in the state, and provides companies and industry leaders the opportunity to gain an expanded understanding of the potential for ethane and ethylene related product development in West Virginia.

Conference attendees learn about West Virginia’s advantages, including tax incentives, environmental permitting, workforce development, availability of employees and site options, and have the opportunity to network with West Virginia leaders, manufacturers, and suppliers.

Welcome


Welcome to the 2016 Marcellus and Manufacturing Development Conference

Join the WVMA on March 23-24, 2016 in Charleston, West Virginia for the 2016 WVMA Marcellus and Manufacturing Development Conference (MMDC). The MMDC combines the former Marcellus to Manufacturing Ethane Development Conference and the WVMA Leadership Summit offering attendees an opportunity to attend the region’s most comprehensive shale and manufacturing conference. The MMDC is held in conjunction with the West Virginia Contractors Association Construction and Design Expo.

Appalachia is well positioned for development of a regional extraction-consumption strategy for the Utica, Marcellus, and associated shale gas plays. The 2016 MMDC explores the infrastructure needed to take advantage of the abundance of shale resources in the region. These infrastructure needs include pipeline development, as well as the development of an Appalachian Storage Hub for ethane utilization.  Such components can create a readily available single source supply of ethane for consumers, predictability in pricing, and distribution channels that promote a broader geographic use and investment that could benefit the businesses and citizens of Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The development of the Appalachian piping infrastructure would help to satisfy the strategic need for feedstock and offtake requirements for world scale distributed manufacturing elements. 

The time is now for West Virginia and the Appalachian region to take a strategic approach to our energy future.  Be part of the solution by joining the WVMA for MMDC 2016.
