Why Attend

On the advice of our Analyst Partners end user Advisory Panel, GDS has elected more than 65 of the most well respected CXO decision makers in the Australian utilities industry.

Invitations are based on the investments these executives are currently making in the market. Many of these executives have worked closely with us on previous events.

The Next Generation Utilities Summit will provide a number of different networking channels to execute and promote business. Our business model is built around the success of networking and focused interactive workshops. Senior decision makers will engage in business meetings with solution providers who are specific to their business challenges and areas of future investment.

Another very exciting part of our agenda is the “working lunch roundtable discussions”, which comprise a moderator, panelists and industry leaders discussing modern day issues affecting Utilities.

Whilst there are a dozen sponsors in attendance, the program is designed with the end user in mind. The delegate attendance is comprised of the most well respected executives in the Utilities, and the meeting format is designed to surpass the traditional exchange of business cards and allow executives to have a good discussion on a personal level.

Who should attend? CEOs, CIOs, VPs Generation, Operations and T&D.

The Next Generation Utilities Summit for Australia will feature senior executives with the following job titles:

  • Chairman / CEO
  • President / Vice President
  • Vice Chairman
  • Executive Director
  • Heads of Renewable Energy Programs
  • Heads of Power Generation Programs
  • Heads of Operations / Technology / Strategy and Engineering


"The NGU Summit provided a unique opportunity to network with industry leaders and solution providers that are facing similar challenges as I am, and to hear of thought leading projects that will pave the way to the utility of the next generation."
