2013-Energy-Summit_BoothsSummit Overview

In 2012 the Office of Energy Development hosted the first annual Governor’s Energy Development Summit, hosting approximately 1,000 attendees in its first year, and drawing dozens of industry sponsors.  The Summit was a great success, serving as a meeting place  and display case for business, an educational opportunity for non-profits and the public, and a policy-incubator for state legislators and others.

The Summit, which OED hosts at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City, grew to 1,400 attendees in its second year (2013), and again received high praise from all those involved, including Utah’s federal delegation and, of course, Governor Gary R. Herbert.  Moving forward, OED will continue to host the Summit, with the objective of securing its place as the region’s most important and productive energy conference.  OED could not make this phenomenal event happen without the continued generosity of its partners, both in industry and in government.

The first day of the 2014 Summit will include an evening reception and energy-related tradeshow with vendors. The second day will be a full exhibit day and will include a full technical presentation including the Governor’s address, keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and tradeshow exhibits. An estimated 1,500 attendees are expected to participate in the 2014 Summit as it expands to a regional focus, welcoming participants from surrounding Western states.
