Comments from 2014 Conference
"Many thanks for everything you did to make this year's conference such a great success.  I was able to meet with 11 Utilities during the match making sessions which I feel was quite accomplishing as they were quality one on ones and I expect future opportunities to bid to come from those meetings."
"Congratulations on another outstanding and successful conference. As always I am looking forward to next year’s event in Albuquerque. The supplier I invited to attend the conference was extremely impressed and was successful in obtaining many new contacts. There is even the possibility of a partnership with one of the other suppliers that I introduced them to."
Comments from 2013 Conference
"My President has attended previous EEI Conferences, and invited me to attend this year.  Very impressive gathering of the people that directly contribute to our success within the power generation.  I look forward to the many opportunities I anticipate will present as a result of this conference. "
"Overall the event was productive and good investment of time and money for our company.  However, like many events, the follow through and follow up is the litmus test for success.  Many of the utilities were well prepared and I felt was really engaged." 

"As a former executive with a company who sold services to the utility industry, I had a feel for what to expect, though even I was surprised by the friendliness and true openness to helping small businesses-such as ourselves-feel like a part of the "family"."
Imagine the possibilities!
