New Dates for the 4th DUG Midcontinent Conference and Exhibition
The next DUG Midcontinent conference and exhibition is set for October 26-28, 2016, at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The change comes in response to feedback from attendees and exhibitors. Previously, the event had been held in February. All participants can now enjoy warmer weather in October.
Last year, the DUG Midcontinent conference and exhibition joined more than 1,400 oil and gas professionals with 24 executive-level presenters and nearly 150 exhibitors and sponsors for an in-depth look at unconventional resource development throughout the region. Every DUG event delivers a highly effective mix of data, insight and forecasts about financing, exploration, drilling and production, presented by esteemed industry leaders. The 2016 DUG Midcontinent conference and exhibition will build on the franchise's success with informative presentations from the region's most active players.
