Who cares that CS Week 2014 exceeded all goals, all numbers and won overwhelming response from participants?
Utilities across North America, the Caribbean–even Israel–expect new information, applicable strategies and fresh perspectives from executives, managers and supervisors they sent to San Antonio in May.
The attendees care, too.
Whether they joined us in San Antonio for a highly targeted one-day College course or Synergy Group, the two-day Executive Summit or Key Account Forum, the three-day 311 Synergy Group or the more than 65 workshops of Conference 38, participants came seeking new answers, the wisdom of experienced speakers and the latest in meter-to-cash products and services.
Introduced last year, Key Account Forum attracted a dynamic group of these specialized executives to focus on the issues and opportunities unique to them.
Their two-day agenda was packed with sessions on dealing with the needs of their utilities’ major accounts and superior cooperation among them.
CS Week Executive Summit drew a significant increase over last year’s record number of participants.
The energy and innovation elicited by these leaders sets each year’s goals and content higher.
Conference 38–yes, we’ve been meeting the educational needs of utilities for 38 years–boasted more workshops than ever and top speakers.
Attendee surveys guide us to better meet the changing needs of utility professionals in many ways, especially in providing vital information from those who know it best.
CS Week Exhibit Hall bustled this year as more utility attendees took advantage of private demonstrations before the daily opening.
Everything in the hall felt new and innovative this year and invited overall greater interest and interaction.
I invite you to join us in congratulating this year’s eight Expanding Excellence Award-winning utilities presented in cooperation with Electric Light & Power.
Short videos of the 2014 winning projects are available on YouTube as well as www.csweek.org.
Both the call for submissions for EEA and the call for 2015 presentations will be issued later this summer and posted on Facebook and Twitter.
We look forward to seeing you April 27 through May 1, 2015, in Charlotte, N.C., for CS Week 2015.
Rod Litke, CEO, CS Week
