Keeping it Virtual in 2021

As much as we're all eager to get back together in person, we've decided to plan for the 15th Rocky Mountain Utility Exchange in September 2021 to again be online only with the expectation that in 2022 we will be both in-person and online.

The Call for Presenters will launch in May with an enhanced agenda format to leverage what we liked best about last year's event and the other virtual events we've attended.  This will include half-day-long sessions with more audience interaction in small group exchanges.  Sponsor registrations are now being accepted.  Learn about Sponsor Opportunities at www.utilityexchange.org/15th-rmue-sponsor-opps

We are looking forward to connecting with you again online this fall.

Last Year's Virtual Session Recordings Still Available

Recordings of all of last year's live sessions and workshops as well as the pre-recorded poster presentations are still available to all registrants of the 14th Rocky Mountain Utility Exchange at the UtilityExchange.org website.  If you missed last year's virtual event and would like to view the recordings, you may still register HERE.  Visit the Resources Directory page for all other past proceedings.

Every fall for 13 years, industry professionals from utilities, government agencies, and solution providers in Colorado and neighboring states made the trek to Aspen. Last year we were only able to meet online but that didn't impact our registration numbers. Over 150 people registered to participate online in 2020. See the registrant list at www.utilityexchange.org/look-whos-connecting-2020
