The GRIDSMART team is working diligently to fulfill our promise of delivering a powerful lineup of speakers and topics at INTERSECT17, to be held November 13th through the 16th in Knoxville, Tennessee. Attendees can expect to enjoy packed days of learning, laughing and changing transportation. There will be case studies, panel discussions, and opportunities for one-on-one meetings with members of the GRIDSMART leadership team.
We want attendees to be able to join colleagues, roll up their sleeves and immerse themselves on how to be successful in the ITS field.
