The Energy Design Conference typically attracts up to 500 engaged participants. In general, the types of attendees range from HVAC Contractors, Home builders, Architects, Electric Utility Representatives, and professionals interested in energy efficient technologies. The Exhibit Hall area of the conference is a highly energetic and interactive experience and provides a great networking opportunity for attendees and presenters.

Our goal is to provide a positive educational experience for all attendees. For this reason, we request that sessions avoid promoting and/or marketing a specific product. The Energy Design Conference planning team reserves the right to reject applications based on questionable product integrity and/or credibility.
