9th Annual
Frac Sand Supply & Logistics Conference









November 16-18, 2020

The Frac Sand Industry is Ready to Safely Meet and Get Back to Business!

With frac sand bankruptcies, M&A activity, altered supply chains, mobile sand plants, equipment for sale, and potential capacity constraints, we are going to have A LOT to talk about. Rarely has there been a time when so many companies are looking for new solutions and new partners. You do not want to miss this event.

The Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort has protocols in place to help us maintain proper distances and to minimize risk. They have been holding live in-person events on site without issue and we look forward to having a great conference. We hope you can join us.
