Do you have what it takes to win?
Bring your "A" game and you could take home a DUGGIE exhibitor award!


To acknowledge the growth and professionalism in the exhibitions associated with its successful DUG conference series, Hart Energy is pleased to announce the new "DUGGIE" awards program for all its North American DUG events.

Every DUG exhibitor is automatically eligible for this friendly competition. A team of expert judges from Hart Energy's conference team, the Freeman show services staff and selected guest judges will determine the winners at each DUG event.
