As a vendor, you will participate in Boardroom Vendor Presentations, Summit Solution Showcases, Executive Premier Showcases, and more, deigned to maximize the Utility Executives' exposure to your products and services and create solid sales leads. 

In comparison with classic Trade Shows, we target, pre-qualify, and deliver only C-Level or equivalent Decision Makers of the Utilities invited to our Summits. Unlike the typical expo-type trade shows, the Summits deliver a structured and intimate environment conducive to conducting business with these prime prospects. You are provided with the format and tools needed to identify, meet with and present your products and services to Executives in a variety of settings: one-on-one meetings, group boardroom presentations, educational settings and an endless variety of networking and social activities. You will also profit from face time with customers, Industry authorities from government, leading publications and professional associations.

Our number one priority is to provide you the means to achieve productive connections with our VIP Utility Attendees Executives.

The Boardroom Vendor Presentations enable Vendors to meet with and discuss their product(s), service(s) and solutions to select groups of Utility Executives. The Summit Solution Showcase enables Vendors and Utility Executives the perfect means to follow-up on Boardroom Presentations. Furthermore, the Executive Premier Presentations and a dynamic series of networking events, are designed to reinforce and solidify interaction between all Summit participants.
