Welcome to Santa Fe, the historic capital of New Mexico and home of the New Mexico Oil & Gas Association. We look forward to welcoming you to NMOGA’s 93rd Annual Meeting!
As one of the oldest and largest oil and natural gas gatherings in the United States, NMOGA’s Annual Meeting regularly attracts more than 1,000 top industry leaders and executives, as well as state and federal elected and regulatory officials, to network, build business relationships, and learn the latest about New Mexico’s thriving oil and natural gas industry.
Situated at 7,000 feet in the foothills of the southern Rocky Mountains, Santa Fe is the highest and oldest capital in the United States. Over its 400 plus year history, its unique offerings of art, culture and ancient traditions make it a world-class destination, drawing more than 1 million visitors each year.
Santa Fe has long been a center of commerce in the west, a place where goods and services were made and traded. Six decades of the Santa Fe Trail cemented Santa Fe’s reputation as the commercial capital at the US-Mexico border, and following New Mexico’s incorporation as a state in 1911, Santa Fe became the state capital.
Today Santa Fe is the sum of its powerful history, with many families tracing their roots back several generations, a small-town atmosphere and an international reputation for artistic and architectural sophistication.
Adjacent to NMOGA’s 2021 Annual Meeting is one of New Mexico’s most iconic events, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Celebrating 49 years this year, Balloon Fiesta is a world-renowned attraction and destination for all ages. For five decades, the first week in October brings the smells of roasting chiles and the beautiful, magical moving picture show of hot air balloons sailing silently through the crisp fall air. Guests from all over the world come to Albuquerque to celebrate ballooning. Hundreds of balloons will be taking flight from the Balloon Fiesta Park this year, creating an exciting city-wide celebration that’s not to be missed!
