DistribuTECH 2017 will take place Jan. 31-Feb. 2 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif. The event draws industry professionals from electric, gas, and water utilities, providing them with more information and networking opportunities than any other annual T&D event. Now in its 27th year, the event is expected to attract more than 11,300 attendees from 78 countries.
Although DistribuTECH has historically focused on the power industry, water professionals will find relevant content and information as well - particularly those charged with managing assets, energy usage, metering programs, and mobile workforce solutions.
The keynote session will feature Geoff Colvin, Fortune magazine’s senior editor-at-large, who will share his views on how complex issues like the digital transformation are impacting the economy and, in particular, energy-related business.
On the exhibit floor, nearly 500 companies will showcase their latest products and services. Read on for our top picks.
