The Consultants Forum

There is no better time to learn more about the nation's fastest growing industry than at the Renewable Energy Forum, November 4-6 in Dallas. With greater national and legislative support this initiative continues to open exciting new opportunities for economic developers from increasing domestic and global investment.

This premiere event brings together an outstanding lineup of selected speakers from among site consultants and corporate end users knowledgeable in all disciplines of the renewable energy industry who will present the most current opportunities in attracting OEMs and suppliers to your location.

The Renewable Energy Forum is the perfect opportunity to hear about the latest trends, speak one-on-one with these outstanding experts, participate in roundtable discussions and network with your peers. The Forum explores critical issues as they relate to the growth of this industry including the new frontiers of renewable energy manufacturing, related support industries, the supply chain, and the prospect for expansion of transmission and infrastructure that will bring more investment opportunity to EDCs.

The Renewable Energy Forum offers a comprehensive tutorial on both the fundamental and more advanced issues of where the energy industry is headed. The Forum opens with a Wednesday evening Welcome Reception that allows you to meet the speakers and your colleagues, and continues with a full-day program on Thursday and a half day of break-out Roundtables with your chosen consultants on Friday morning.

The Renewable Energy Forum will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel - Las Colinas, minutes from DFW Airport. Registration is $1495 and includes all meals and receptions during your stay.
