31st Annual Power and Gas M&A Symposium

Pre-Conference Workshop on Jan. 30
Main Conference Jan. 31-Feb. 1

Produced by the Knowledge Center, an executive conference from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Celebrating its 31st year, the Power and Gas M&A Symposium continues to be the pre-eminent executive conference in the industry. Bringing utilities, power generators, renewables, and Wall Street together, this event consistently sets the tone for strategic decisions for the year.

2017 has ushered in new leadership at the DOE, EPA, FERC, and the Supreme Court. What does this mean for M&A as a sound growth strategy for companies? How does renewable energy and technology continue to shape M&A as a business strategy, and what is the ROI?

This year’s conference will address those issues and more, bringing together industry experts and leaders. Backed by data and analytics you won’t find at other events, you will receive essential intelligence necessary to make informed decisions.

Whether you are anticipating M&A as a buyer or seller, make plans to attend this important executive event.
