WHY EXHIBIT AS A START-UP AT SPI, ESI, AND NORTH AMERICA SMART ENERGY WEEK?

This unique opportunity for small, emerging companies allows you the opportunity to introduce your new products, tools, and services to a large audience. With 19,000 attendees and 30+ media outlets (not sure if we’re pushing out anticipated numbers. If not then we need to strike this, otherwise just needs to be updated with whatever language we’re using in our marketing), this is the event where you can find new customers, get media attention, and have the opportunity to add thought leaders and leading companies to your network.

You get exposure for all three days of the expo floor with a dedicated booth space, including four (4) registrations for your personnel, giving you a home base to conduct meetings—all for only $2,500.
