Community advised of parking strategy during DMG Oil Sands Trade Show and Conference

(Fort McMurray, AB, September 4, 2014) - The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) advises the community of the implementation of a comprehensive parking strategy during the upcoming DMG Oil Sands Trade Show and Conference from September 9 - 10.                                                                    

“We are pleased to welcome the DMG Oil Sands Trade Show and Conference back to the Suncor Community Leisure Centre this fall,” said Russell Agnew, Interim Chief Operating Officer of the RRC. “The DMG Oil Sands Trade Show & Conference, now the second largest event of its kind in Canada, brings significant traffic to the Suncor Community Leisure Centre and has proven extremely beneficial for the community, as any revenue generated contributes to MacDonald Island Park, a not-for-profit corporation, offering programs and services at affordable rates. In anticipation of this busy annual event we will implement the parking policy we established in 2013 to minimize the impact on our members and the community. In conjunction with this policy we have scheduled the annual maintenance closure of the Syncrude Aquatic Centre and TOTAL Fitness Centre to take place during these dates to further minimize traffic congestion and facilitate parking.”

As per policy established in 2013, 200 parking stalls will be reserved during the DMG Oil Sands Trade Show and Conference for ‘ONE Pass’ holders. Members will be able to access this reserved parking by displaying their ‘ONE Pass’ identification card to security personnel. To further address parking congestion the outdoor exhibition area for the DMG Oil Sands Trade Show and Conference has been reduced by 50%. Exhibitors have been limited to one parking spot per booth in designated exhibitor parking during the event, and exhibitors and conference attendees will have access to free shuttle services from local hotels as well as a park and ride service.
