Impactful Networking Opportunities at Net Zero Forum Fall
Energy customers and suppliers will join together for two days of keynote presentations, spotlight sessions, productive 1:1 meetings, and small-group networking at Smart Energy Decisions’ Net Zero Forum Fall (#NZF23Fall), set for September 19-20, 2023, at the Hilton Phoenix Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Net Zero Forum agenda will kick off with two separate Peer-to-Peer Conversations, one for energy customers and — for the first time — one for event sponsors. Opening keynotes will include "Balancing Profitability and Sustainability at IKEA" presented by Adrian Avino of IKEA Property, Inc., and "Future-Proofing Sustainability: How to Thrive Amidst Changing Protocols" with Greg Kandankuman from NRG.
Networking opportunities will continue at networking receptions and the Opening Night Dinner for 1:1 meeting participants (energy customers and suppliers), as well as the DEI Impact Awards presentation, Spotlight sessions, meals and breaks.
"The Net Zero Forum provides a great opportunity for attendees to share their challenges and brainstorm solutions, both in designated sessions and those 'in-between' times," said Debra Chanil, Editorial and Research Director for Smart Energy Decisions. “I’m always impressed by the level of conversation and the sharing of information that occurs at our events."
