A business masterclass and interactive workshop for turning potential into action

This is an action-oriented interactive workshop presented by leading practitioners. The masterclass will drill-down into the methods that experienced practitioners have used to gain project approval and deliver real outcomes. The masterclass will go beyond the business case justification of traditional energy and maintenance savings motivators and will extend into harnessing:

  • The pivotal role of multi function poles
  • Revenue generation opportunities
  • Council and telco collaboration potential
  • The value of street lighting real-estate assets
  • Traffic and weather adaptive lighting
  • Automated database population using CMS controls
  • Simplifying the procurement of complex assets.

How does a Masterclass Programme looks like?

Do I have to attend the conference or can I just attend the Masterclasses?

There is no pre-requisite to attend the conference, though for most people this will be highly advantageous.
