Engineers fly the flag for the UK at DistribuTECH 2016

Earlier this month, our engineers Tony Knowles and Simon Wilson, travelled to Orlando, Florida for the annual DistribuTECH conference and exhibition.

The three day event focussed on electricity distribution and the EIC was one of 540 companies from across the world exhibiting.

DistribuTECH is the world’s leading event for the utility sector with 11,773 people attending from 67 countries.

Tony said of the event: “Although it was a little further to travel than the usual exhibitions we attend it was definitely worthwhile. We met with so many fantastic companies and individuals who are trying to drive innovation in the sector.

“Simon and I attended six conferences across the three days, all of which were really interesting and gave us a lot to bring back to the EIC to share learnings with the rest of the team, our innovation community and our industry partners.”
