With an expected attendance of over 300 wind energy professionals from across Canada and the United States, the O&M Summit is the best place to get up to speed on the latest technologies, innovations and services in the rapidly-growing wind energy sector. It is also a great opportunity for both structured and informal networking with industry leaders.
The two-day gathering will take place on January 29 to 30, 2019 in Toronto, Ontario at the Hilton Mississauga/Meadowvale.
One major focus of the summit will be to enhance the growing connection of people, technology, organizations, policy development, and experience that is pushing rapid O&M advancements within the wind energy industry – both globally and with customization for Canadian conditions. Summit attendees will be exposed to new ideas from researchers and entrepreneurs; new products and services delivered through “elevator pitches” that delegates will vote on; the event’s largest-ever exhibit space; research huddles highlighting the latest research; and a session dedicated to start-ups and the innovation pathway.
Another key focus will be on health and safety, which is pre-eminent in all aspects of wind energy operations and maintenance. The principles of a strong health and safety culture will be evident within presentations and sessions, and all attendees are invited to participate in a health and safety committee meeting.
Participants will also attend the CanWEA O&M Awards Breakfast where the following annual prestigious awards will be presented: the Outstanding Achievement Award and the O&M Safety Excellence Award.
