Itron Utility Week (IUW) 2019 kicks off on Oct. 11 with pre-conference trainings and hits full steam on Oct. 13 with the Knowledge Conference. As you prepare for your trek to Marco Island, Florida, we’ve got all the details to help ensure your trip is a success. Be sure to keep these items in mind:

  • Download the IUW app to stay in-the-know. The IUW app is your up-to-date resource for the complete conference schedule.
  • Build your schedule ahead of time. Use the IUW app to build your schedule of everything you want to attend at the conference. Please remember that adding a session to your personal schedule does not guarantee a seat.
  • Sign up for the Itron Experience tour in the Knowledge Center. Have you ever wanted to see Itron’s solutions in action? Join us for a guided tour through our interactive demo space.
  • Volunteer at the beach cleanup. Join us Sunday morning for a volunteer beach clean-up and educational experience with JW Marriott Naturalists to learn about the natural habitat and wildlife. While we walk, we will be clearing any debris that is hazardous to help keep the beach clean and safe for the wildlife living there. Register now.
  • Join the Turtle Trot. Lace up your tennis shoes and join us to celebrate the power of community with a lively 5k (3.1 miles) race on the beach. Whether you prefer a brisk walk, casual jog or a full-on sprint, this is for everyone. Stick around afterward and take a dip in the Gulf of Mexico to cool off! Learn more here.
  • You’ll be on Eastern Time (ET). Set your watch accordingly—you don’t want to miss anything!
  • It’s going to be warm. Marco Island averages a daily maximum temperature in October that’s between 70 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Conference attire is business casual. But be sure to pack your comfortable and fun beach attire for the Beach Block Party on Monday night.

We can’t wait to see you on Marco Island in a few weeks!
