From a focus on transition to imagining the end game. The headline theme for Utility Week Live 2020 is The Utility of the Future.

We are running a year-long, cross-portfolio campaign in partnership with sister brands Utility Week, Network and WWT, focusing on tackling the difficult questions and engineering the digital future of utilities.

The Utility of the Future campaign is a big one – using all the firepower we have in our brand portfolio, we will produce articles, webinars, podcasts, surveys, events and much more. We aim to create engagement, confidence and excitement as utilities transition to a low-carbon, technology-enabled future with dynamic customer engagement.
