We are already a month into the New Year and it may be hard to believe but DistribuTech is right around the corner. Many of us in the smart grid and utility biz will be traveling to Orlando, FL next week for one of the largest utility focused conferences.

With over 500 exhibitors and more than 15,000 attendees, it can be an overwhelming process to begin preparations for the show. Luckily, the Energy Acuity team is here to help! We can assist you with targeting some of the largest names in the market, find you the best contacts at those companies, and provide lists of the most notable projects that will be moving forward over this next year.

In years past when we’ve met up with our clients at DistribuTech and other conferences several of them have let us know that they used Energy Acuity to help schedule and prepare for meetings. They explained that they search for companies who they want to target and have the contact details provided to them through EA. They then reach out to individuals that work for those companies to set meetings. It is no surprise our clients have such success at DistribuTech as they have access to over 4,000 company and contact details on more than 35,000 executives. They can also do the due diligence and research required to have successful meetings with these companies.

As you prepare for DistribuTech, take a deep breath, and let us help answer some questions for you such as; who are the best companies for me to meet with? Do I know who the biggest players are in the smart grid industry? Who implemented the most projects over the past year? Whose projects are moving forward in the coming year?
