“The attendees are what make or break these sorts of events – that was the main reason I attended the RTC Summit. The event did not disappoint: it had just the right people. I was also really impressed that the event had a very collaborative feel. This was one of the best conferences I’ve attended in a while.”
“The RTC Summit offers a rare opportunity to connect in person with people who are focused on decarbonizing thermal loads. Connecting with peers about how our challenges are similar and how they are different was as useful as meeting with the various solution providers. I highly recommend the Summit.”
“The RTC Summit has great attendance and represents well the thermal decarbonization ecosystem in the US and globally. The topics selected are always well balanced, and it is a great opportunity to hear about buyers’ strategies and challenges, innovative technologies, and the latest federal policies. The venue allows for great networking at breaks and dinner. If you are interested in thermal decarbonization, I definitely recommend this event.”
“At the RTC Summit, I was immersed in an unparalleled experience that differed from traditional conferences. The Summit provided a platform for making meaningful connections with industry leaders, while fostering a collaborative atmosphere for all. RTC Members and Sponsors alike were able to develop stepping stones towards meeting our shared decarbonization goals and a greener future worldwide.”
