A closing cocktail reception will provide a venue for networking with Mexican and U.S. conference participants as well as other key business and government leaders.

Listen to what some of our 2012 sponsors are saying:

The U.S. Mexico Smart Grid Technology & Business Conference is the type of event that creates an atmosphere of open and friendly discussion of new ideas between vendors and customers. We were able to meet with high-level executives who shared their business insight and vision with us. The information has been extremely useful in shaping our strategy”
