Event Information

Event description


ARCOS is going on the road...and we’d like you to join us and your regional peers! Coming together to solve challenges and overcome obstacles is one of the many qualities that make the utility industry shine. We’ve partnered with a utility in your region to create a space where you can meet and share your knowledge on topics such as mobility in the field, adoption and rollout of new technology and determining the most important information you need during daily operations or events in order to make informed, efficient decisions.

This one-day event will be comprised of 80% interactive, roundtable discussions where you can learn from your peers and come together within your region to take on some of the toughest challenges you face. We will also have an expert-led workshop on emergency planning and ICS execution, as well as showcase a few ways that utilities are using technology to speed up processes and reduce manual tasks.

We’ll start the roadshow with a reception the night before, that way you’ll know everyone when we get started the next morning! The meeting the next day will be over by 4PM so you can drive or catch a quick flight home.
