Smart Utility Summit

The 2023 Smart Utility Summit (SUS23) is designed to bring together a select group of 80 utility and co-op professionals from across North America, along with around 30 leading power and electric industry experts for a 2-day educational networking event. This is a unique opportunity to engage with industry leaders, gain insights into the latest trends and technologies, and network with peers.

Our boardroom-style format ensures that our attendees have a close connection with other electric providers to find out what projects their peers are working on, as well as providing extended face time with solution providers.

Here’s a link to some video testimonials from past attendees:
