Covid-19 has wreaked havoc on the CCGT industry’s user conferences and there is no end in sight. PowerUsers, the umbrella organization presiding over six of the industry’s most robust and influential user groups, decided early last week to forego a face-to-face meeting of their Combined Conference this year.
The conference is home to the Combined Cycle, Steam Turbine, Generator, and Powerplant Controls Users Groups. The groups are opting for an all-digital, screen-to-screen series of webinar sessions to disseminate valuable information to owner/operators all over the globe.
Once again, PowerUsers will team up with COMBINED CYCLE Journal to bring this year’s content to your desktop or mobile device, as we have already during the 7F Users Group 2020 Digital Conference, where nearly 600 users are accessing a variety of technical content critical to their operations, both live and on-demand. Presentations, contact information, forum interaction, and interactive Q&A are all at all registrants’ fingertips unlike ever before.
This 2020 Digital Combined Conference will feature many of the same opportunities for vendors to connect with users during this challenging time:
- OEM and OOEM extended technical presentations.
- Live special technical presentations.
- Recorded technical presentations.
- Virtual vendor fairs with live video feeds (all in one platform).
- Post-session, deep-dive roundtables.
- Access to the fastest growing customer demographic: the virtual user group conference attendee.
Details will be emerging in the coming weeks. Email conference coordinator Sheila Vashi, email@example.com, for preliminary updates and to make sure you are a part of all official communications forthcoming. Be safe and see you on-screen.
