“I wanted to reach out and thank you for all the hard work you put into the EMC16 conference.  To me, it seemed like a complete success.  There may have been fewer attendees, but the general feeling was that they were higher-quality contacts.  I’m sure we only saw the ‘tip of the iceberg” when it comes to all you did for us.”

“The conference was wonderful and everyone said Houston will be even better and bigger!  It was so good to see everyone after all this time.”

“Jack – Thanks again for hosting such a great conference. I am personally such an advocate of EMC.

I think it has evolved into what I believe to be a near perfect blend of like-minded wholesale-to-retail folks, with different incentives coming together to figure out the most efficient, cost-effective, and efficacious way of running their businesses.

Tech, renewables, and new innovative marketing and data driven solutions using distributed gen yields a glimpse into our future grid.

Thanks again.”

Steven Tyberski


“EMC16 was a great way to get an accurate pulse on the regulatory environment, technology disruptions, and the latest industry trends. It really helped me learn who the real players are in this space! I had a great time at EMC16 last week and really learned a lot from all the industry professionals there.”
