  • Highlights from the 2019 Global Power Markets™ Conference

  • Networking and deal-making opportunities

    For the past 34 years, we've been bringing constituents from across the power investment and development sectors together. It's an annual event they look forward to all year long to reconnect and set up their deals for the upcoming year.

    You’ll meet everyone from CEOs to consultants. Plus, you'll get access to our free event app that lets you see exactly who's attending, exchange contact information, and set up meetings before you even arrive. Click here to see who attended last year ›

  • Optimizing performance

    Attend the pre-conference Platts Analytics North American Power and Natural Gas Outlook Workshop to learn about the key aspects of natural gas production, storage, and demand impacting power investment and generation. It's designed for better decisions, and especially ideal for banks and other financial institutions, energy end-users, energy traders, and analysts.

  • Connecting all the dots

    The Global Power Markets™ Conference isn’t just another industry event.

    It brings high-level speakers, exclusive content, timely insight, an engaged community, and networking technology to a focal point—and in the heart of Las Vegas no less. The potential is unlimited.

    We think our past attendees say it best:

    "The conference is really the premier networking event. They've got great speakers so you can hear what people are thinking, spark some conversations, but in the meantime, it's all about the people who are here and talking to folks. If you're in the business of doing deals, whether it's buying a plant, selling a plant, financing a plant, this is where everybody is."

    "If you are a banker to the industry, if you're a lender to the industry, if you're a consultant, lawyer, accountant, this is where you're going to find the decision-makers. Those that are doing deals, building facilities, buying facilities—that really need all those services. This is the place to come if you really want to get exposure to the industry leaders."

    "This conference has three things going for it that most others don't: 1) it's an amazing unique networking opportunity because of the critical mass of key decision-makers; 2) the program is very timely with topics not only about US markets but also what's happening elsewhere around the world; and 3) last but not least, it's a discussion forum with key decision-makers, investors, lawyers, and financial folks. It's a combination of the program and participants that you don't see anywhere else."

More Attendee Reviews

“I've been attending this conference for 20 years. It gets better with time. The caliber of the presentations and the participants remains quite high and are the drawing power of the event”
“As a relative newcomer to the industry, I am constantly seeking information I can use to expand my knowledge base, as well as developing a deeper understanding of the key players, their roles, their influence, industry terminology, and so on. I enjoyed meeting and speaking with those from different sectors, i.e., investment, engineering, consulting, etc. The event was very organized and professional. Thank you very much!”
“This event is always one of the highlights of the year for me. Even more impressive than the lineup of speakers are the people who attend the conference. You learn as much from your colleagues at the event as you do from the speakers.”
