What is EMART and why did it co-locate with European Utility Week 2017?

EMART Energy 2017 combined a strong conference programme with a lively exhibition floor, interactive Hub Sessions and multiple networking moments divided over two days. Attracting 650+ attendees, of which 64% represent the largest trading firms from across 30+ countries, EMART Energy is the no. 1 platform for Europe’s Energy Traders.


By co-locating with European Utility Week 2017, EMART Energy kept the pace with the new market dynamics, allowing its attendees, exhibitors and partners to strengthen their contact with new players, energy providers and industry stakeholders, and expand their knowledge by sharing experiences, case studies and best practices with the smart energy community. Exhibitors were able to expand their business by networking with senior-level trading professionals and showcasing their brands to a strong and broader audience from across the energy market.
