Expanding on last year’s successful inaugural event, Darnell’s 2011 CTO Power Summit, February 28 & March 1 near San Diego, California, will provide delegates with a broader program and more opportunities to obtain advanced information on future trends, threats and opportunities. Two Super Sessions will be held, one focusing on "Wireless Energy Transfer" and the second delving into the latest "Smart Grid Developments." Speakers at this year’s CTO Power Summit will include representatives from Armstrong World Industries, California Institute for Energy & Environment, Electric Power Research Institute, EMerge Alliance, Fulton Innovation, Intel Energy Laboratories, National Electrical Manufacturers Association, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Qualcomm, Wireless Power Consortium, WiTricity, and others.
"This is a unique opportunity for extensive one-on-one networking with CTOs from around the world. In just two days, sponsor-underwriters will be able to make contacts that would be difficult or impossible to make otherwise, even with a year of travel," stated Jeff Shepard, President of Darnell Group. "Our unique Super Sessions feature industry leaders making in-depth hour-long presentations, in contrast with the 20-minute overviews common at other technology conferences. Plus, all CTO delegates are our guests for the entire program, including ample opportunities for networking during meals together," Shepard concluded.
