Itron continues to monitor and navigate through the coronavirus pandemic, keeping the safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers and partners first and foremost in our decisions. As a result of the near-term dynamic environment, we have decided to cancel this spring’s 18th Annual Energy Forecasting Meeting and Workshop. We look forward to seeing you next year in New Orleans (rescheduled to April 20-23, 2021).

While social distancing and shelter-in-place mandates mean that we can’t meet in person, Itron will still be hosting several webinars throughout the originally planned dates – April 22 through April 24 – to keep you informed. We hope that you will join us!

Participation for these webinars is free, like our Brown Bags, but prior registration is required. Each seminar will last approximately one hour, allowing 45 minutes for the presentation and 15 minutes for questions. If you can’t attend or if you miss one, each session will be recorded and a link to the recording will be sent to you automatically after the event.
