Itron, which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, has announced that its flagship event, Itron Inspire 2021 (formerly Itron Utility Week), will take place 1-8 October 2021, both in person at the JW Marriott Desert Springs in Palm Desert, CA and virtually in a hybrid format.
The customer-focused event will bring together leaders from across energy, water, industrial IoT and smart communities to share perspectives and best practices to drive the industry forward.
“Offering Itron Inspire in a hybrid format will allow us to bring our signature conference to more customers than ever before. We look forward to gathering under our new name, Itron Inspire, with a broader focus on how we, collectively, can leverage technology and services to drive business transformation, enhance customer engagement and unlock innovation,” said Marina Donovan, vice president, global marketing and public affairs. “I’m excited to safely gather again with our customers, partners and prospects to explore the possibilities for a better connected, sustainable and resourceful future.”
