Postponed: EEI Supply Chain Security Conference
Tuesday, April 14, 2020 - Thursday, April 16, 2020
Hyatt Regency La Jolla
3777 La Jolla Village Dr San Diego, CA 92122 UNITED STATES
  • Protecting the health and safety of our employees, member company employees, and customers is—and has always been—EEI’s top priority. Given the growing concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the increased impact it is having on some communities, we are cancelling the EEI Supply Chain Security Conference, scheduled for April 14-16, 2020 in San Diego, CA.  This was a difficult decision, but we feel it is best to err on the side of caution as this situation rapidly evolves.

    We truly value your support of EEI and your interest in attending our meetings, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

    We will follow up soon with more information for our registrants, speakers, and sponsors. We also will be in touch as we plan our next conference.  In the meantime, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

    Thank you for your patience, understanding, and ongoing support.

  • The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) Supply Chain Security Conference will provide an opportunity for EEI’s member companies and vendor partners to learn about emerging supply chain risk management practices and network with peers from other energy companies and security vendors, including equipment manufacturers, software providers, and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) vendors.

    For EEI’s U.S. electric company members, the Conference will kick off with a meeting of EEI’s Supply Chain Working Group, which brings together security practitioners, legal representatives, compliance staff, and supply chain procurement professionals to engage in cross-disciplinary discussions related to supply chain risk management and will conclude with a meeting of EEI’s new UAS Security Sub-Working Group.
