When the pandemic hit three weeks before Electrification 2020 was scheduled to happen, EPRI had to make some tough choices. First, they postponed their international in-person expo to 2022. Then we got the call: Could we help throw an event in the virtual world instead? Together, we re-branded Electrification 2020 into a 5-day virtual summit featuring daily plenary sessions, interactive breakouts, networking opportunities, and virtual exhibition halls featuring 25+ exhibitors. The event was an excellent bridge between the two 2019 gatherings—the U.S. Summit Series and Electrification Europe—and the expo now moved to 2022 in Charlotte.
