Asian Utility Week 2017 – For the first time, it’s free to attend for everyone!
Asian Utility Week (24-25 May 2017, IMPACT, Bangkok) has been running for 18 years in SE Asia. It will attract 3000+ participants from across Asia’s leading utilities, IPPs, Large Energy Users and Vendor Groups.
The conference streams are now free to attend!
Every year we adjust our programme to reflect the changes in the wider market. We know customers are looking for something future facing as most people attend expos to learn about what’s next and to meet people who can help them achieve their goals. This year we return to Bangkok which is the R&D headquarters for SE Asia’s utility sector. We have dramatically changed our approach to tickets. With the exception of the Premium Leadership stream, this is a free event. We anticipate this will dramatically increase our participation numbers. Click HERE to register.
Expo Structure – 4 big shows on One Expo Floor!
Another change is how we structure the conferences within the expo. This year all the conference theatres are on the expo floor. This means that there will always be a crowd circulating around the expo stands, which means more customers to meet and more business to be transacted. It also means that the show has more energy – a buzz that adds to the excitement around our digital themes. We arrange the 4 main conference streams to follow a distinct theme that flows across both days which will help create more meaningful content for visitors. Each of these streams is explained in more detail from pages 3 to 7. In general terms, Day One concerns ‘Building the Operating System’. Day two concerns ‘Creating more Customer Value’. The streams are below.
- MOBILE FIELD OPERATIONS – covers Enterprise Mobility Solutions, FSM, GIS Innovations and Drones
- SMART GRIDS & DIGITAL METERS – covers Digital Meters, DSM, IoT & The Connected World
- DIGITAL UTILITY TRANFORMATION – covers Data Analytics, Customer Service and Digital Channels
- LARGE ENERGY USERS – covers DG Integration, C&I Buyers, Change Leadership and New Services
We also offer 3 additional free streams that all focused on highlighting innovations in technology:
- Initiate! Startups – 30 exciting smart energy and smart water startups
- The Innovation Zone – R&D insights from the region’s top energy and water technology researchers
- The Technical Zone – New product insights from the world’s leading technology vendors
2017 FOCUS – Meeting the needs of the Self-Service Customer!
Customers have repeatedly shown that they will support the digital disruption of an industry that struggles to ensure high standards at low cost. Utility services are no exception and the utilities know it. Customers want to serve themselves when they want. They may even want to cut their ties with the traditional utility sector to ‘do it all themselves’. Utilities are adjusting and seek a new partnership with customers – both residential and C&I. Our new Large Energy Users stream is dedicated to unravelling what customers want and how utility service providers can adjust to stay relevant.
