We are excited. The Frac Sand Update agenda is released, and frac sand is in demand.
See the first look at next month’s 7th Annual Frac Sand Industry Update agenda. Some heavy hitters including hearing from operators and E&Ps, our new sand mines panel, and an interview with Liberty and PropX. There will of course be ample time for networking as well. The agenda is still being finalized and we will be making more changes in the next week or so as we finalize topics and speakers, so stay tuned!
