What is HUG?

HUG – the Hughes User Group – is the association of organizations that share a vested interest in the use and innovation of Hughes products, services and solutions. The annual HUG Conference brings together HUG members, prospective customers and end-users with Hughes executives and technologists to: 

Gain Access – exchange ideas and hear from peers and leaders. 

Exercise Influence – get involved and provide input directly to Hughes experts. 

Be Inspired – gather ideas, strategies, and a new perspective. 

Best of all, HUG is run by Hughes users, the very people who benefit most from this forum. 

If you are responsible for running the network that runs your business, don’t miss your chance to accelerate your expertise and maximize your network, with Hughes.
