Governor’s Energy Development Summit
Save the Date: June 3-4, 2014
The Office of Energy Development is pleased to announce the third annual Governor’s Energy Development Summit, to be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center on June 3-4, 2014.
Once again, this year’s event will host over one hundred expert speakers from around the country, as well as elected officials and energy industry leaders. The 2014 Summit will address regional issues, encouraging the participation of energy professionals from throughout the Intermountain West.
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.
