Itron Utility Week (IUW) is our premier customer event that brings our community together—and has been an annual event in the Americas for several years. I am excited to share that for the first time, we are bringing this event to our customers, partners and prospects in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. We have gathered industry experts, colleagues and thought leaders for a virtual conference unlike any other—one filled with opportunities to learn from one another, share fresh perspectives and open the door to endless possibilities through innovation.

Hosted virtually from April 21-22, 2021, IUW APAC will feature thought-provoking keynotes, engaging and insightful sessions, and the opportunity to visit the virtual Knowledge Center to learn more about select Itron products and solutions. The virtual format of the conference enables you to customize your experience and access content on-demand during the event and after it concludes.

Tom Deitrich, Itron’s president and CEO, will open the event with Paul Nelson, Itron’s vice president of sales for APAC, to discuss key industry trends and drivers for Asia Pacific utilities, municipalities and cities. Attendees will then be able to join tailored breakout sessions to learn from and have conversations with industry peers and Itron employees who have a firsthand understanding of the issues at play in the sector. Among the topics that will be covered are:

  • Quantifying the value and benefits of distributed intelligence;
  • The rise of renewables and impacts to grid management;
  • Building a safe future for gas;
  • Improving operational visibility and efficiency to reduce non-revenue water and more.

There is no charge to attend and event registration is now open for Itron customers, prospects and partners. For more information about Itron Utility Week APAC: Empowering Innovation, visit
