The Paris Session’s return to its favoured in-person format has triggered record levels of interest and participation. Delegate registrations are well ahead of the same time in 2018, reflecting a heightened interest in a return to face-to-face collaboration, learning and networking.
Philippe Adam, CIGRE Secretary General, comments,
“A hallmark of CIGRE over it’s 100 years of history has been the advancement of power system expertise through the personal connections of our global community of professionals, and it’s exciting after four years to return to this.”
The reconnection of the CIGRE community could well be ground breaking for the Session when you consider:
- Delegate registrations are 25% ahead of the same time in 2018. The 2018 event was a record for CIGRE with 3800 delegates. In 2022 we may well get close to or exceed this number.
- At 802 we also have a record level of technical papers. As a result the poster session and sixteen group discussion meetings are sure to be comprehensive events, complimented by an array of seven fascinating workshops and sixteen tutorials.
- A fully subscribed technical exhibition including a who’s who of the industry, plus a new ‘start up’s pavilion’ that is sure to spark interest.
This strong interest also enables CIGRE to return to social events that promote and facilitate networking. The Sunday cocktail party after the opening ceremony, and the unmissable CIGRE Soirée will take place this year at the Musée des Arts Forains de Paris-Bercy next to the Gare de Lyon - a unique venue and experience complimentary with your registration.
So if you had any doubts about the worth of attending the Paris Session this year the answer is clear. The Paris Session is back, and with the challenge of energy transition facing the global power system, it’s a great time to convene and explore ways to accelerate the technical knowledge needed to change our world.
Join us in the city of light, this August and be part of the first Paris Session of our second century. The leading global event for power system expertise.
