Judy Garber, Executive Director, OESP, stated, “The joint show provided each of the partners the ability to sponsor an industry-wide convention and trade show and enabled each of the sponsors to reach a wider audience as our attendance and participation exceeded our projections. We offered four tracks of business programming during the event and the feedback to date has been very positive.”

The show also hosted “Women in Energy” programming which generated great enthusiasm from the participants and its dynamic speakers.
