Spending Valentine’s Day away from home on business – in a destination city like Orlando, at Universal Studios theme park no less – is one of those times when we all need to have that very understanding loved-one and family back home. But we can all give a thanks to AESP for having our backs by providing this great infographic as some level of proof of how hard we all worked that week at the AESP National Conference.
The truth is….these statistics don’t tell half the story. The Encentiv Energy team is new to the AESP membership, having joined in 2016, and this was our first AESP National Conference, both as exhibitors and attendees. It would be hard to imagine a more important and better opportunity for us to participate in an event that will prove to be more meaningful for the continued growth and success of our company.
It felt like all 780+ attendees stopped to see us in Booth 804, and everyone was very engaging and genuinely interested to hear our story:
- who is Encentiv Energy
- what is our Encentivizer SaaS platform of EE awareness, estimate and submit tools (learn more here)
- how we harness the power of information to provide a better way for the industry to manage the utility incentive process (see how)
Not only did we enjoy meeting and talking with everyone – after all, growing your business in a cost-effective manner is why we all invest the time and dollars in attending conferences like this – but we made the effort to get involved. All three of us – our CEO, CTO and VP of Utility Programs – joined different Topic Committees. What a great opportunity to further network, to contribute to the AESP organization, and to hear first-hand about the latest developments and best practices of our peers – the many experts in this exciting and ever-changing industry.
So again, thank you to everyone that helped make our first AESP National Conference a great experience, by making the effort as well – the AESP Staff, Board Members, Sponsors, Exhibitors and attendees. And congratulations to the AESP Energy Award Winners. The conference theme of Destination Innovation called our name, and we’re glad we made the tough trip to Orlando in February – and glad we remembered to send flowers and candy to those at home!
See you next year in New Orleans!
