Itron Inspire 2021

Virtual Only Event

Oct. 4-6,2021

One of the primary goals of Itron Inspire is to provide the utility community a safe platform to learn from and connect with industry peers and thought leaders. After monitoring conditions related to the ongoing pandemic, and with the health and safety of customers, partners, and employees as a top priority, Itron has made the decision to host Itron Inspire virtually only for 2021.

Despite this shift to a fully virtual experience, we still look forward to gathering our community for informative keynotes, peer-led panels, insightful breakout sessions and the opportunity to learn how to move our industry forward during this unprecedented time. Together, with our utility and smart city colleagues, we’ll explore technology and services to drive business transformation, reimagine customer engagement and inspire innovation.

Join us for Itron Inspire, taking place virtually Oct. 4-6, 2021. A full agenda for the virtual experience will be posted soon.
