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 developed 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.

Winning exhibitors will be recognized and trophies will be presented in the exhibition hall during the networking reception on the first full day of the conference.
