What follows disruption? As the industry evolves, so must the businesses operating within it. But to what? And how?
Building on the success of 2018, UWL19 will explore transition (our exciting new show theme), in all its forms, on the 21-22 May 2019. More than 5,000 industry professionals visited the 2018 event, and we're expecting even more for 2019. We're also bringing some celebrity sparkle to the show this year, with special guests to be announced. Watch this space!
Transition in all its guises
2019 is set to be even bigger. UWL, and co-located show edie Live, are moving to a brand-new hall at the NEC - Hall 3. Plus we have an improved floorplan, inspiring new show features, an innovative show theme, ambitious plans for the scope and scale of the show and much much more.
UWL19 will be dedicated to the solutions turning disruption and turbulence into business as usual - the products and services utilities require to function and thrive in a brave new digital world.
As utilities enter unchartered political waters, we'll be asking the difficult questions: has competition failed customers? Are we ready for electric vehicles? What will the first 100 days after renationalisation look like?

EN Indy Awards 2018
We were absolutely delighted to win not only 'Best Feature Area', but also 'Best Marketing Campaign' for our very first Hackathon at the first Exhibition News Indy Awards in 2018 - two out of the three categories we were shortlisted for!
Judges comments: The judges said The Hackathon was a very innovative feature. A great idea, expertly delivered. They also said that Utility Week Live had a well thought out campaign. Our content-driven approach to messaging and innovative floor content was great to see in an age where engaging with audiences is ever more critical.
This year's Future Systems Hackathon is all about TRANSITION - making way for more dynamic interactions between utilities, service providers and consumers. We're moving from ambition into action when it comes to delivery more environmentally, economically and socially sustainable ways of doing business.
We're shifting towards the business and utility systems of the future.
