The European power sector is at a critical juncture. The European Union’s 20-20-20 policy targets are driving a revolution in power technology and there are an abundance of old and polluting utilities that are in dire need of repair.
The Next Generation Utilities Europe Summit October 2010 once again served as an arena for senior level executives to engage in clear and focused dialogue with their peers and examine their management objectives in a relaxed and vibrant environment.
On the advice of our Analyst Partners end user Advisory Panel, GDS has elected more than 65 of the most well respected CXO decision makers in the European utilities industry.
Invitations are based on the investments these executives are currently making in the market. Many of these executives have worked closely with us on previous events.
The Next Generation Utilities Summit will provide a number of different networking channels to execute and promote business. Our business model is built around the success of networking and focused interactive workshops. Senior decision makers will engage in business meetings with solution providers who are specific to their business challenges and areas of future investment.
Another very exciting part of our agenda is the “working lunch roundtable discussions”, which comprise a moderator, panelists and industry leaders discussing modern day issues affecting Utilities.
Whilst there are a dozen sponsors in attendance, the program is designed with the end user in mind. The delegate attendance is comprised of the most well respected executives in the Utilities, and the meeting format is designed to surpass the traditional exchange of business cards and allow executives to have a good discussion on a personal level.
Who should attend? CEOs, CIOs, VPs Generation, Operations and T&D.
"Two of the most productive days I have ever spent at a conference. High caliber participants who were fully engaged in discussions of very relevant topics."
