The success of the first-ever MTU Virtual Power Generation Symposium, and in particular the Curtis Power Solutions (CPS) booth, shows that mtu, a Rolls-Royce Solution, continues to meet and exceed the challenges of sharing information and ideas within the power generation community – even during the Covid-19 pandemic!
Held November 30 – December 3, 2020, the free symposium reached a global audience with over 1,800 registrations—compared with approximately 400 for the in-person event—and more than 60 countries represented. “We put a tremendous amount of effort into our preparation,” said Josh Falcone, VP/GM, South Region. “We began email marketing four to five weeks prior to the event to encourage participation by consulting engineers who can earn continuing education credits to help them maintain their professional engineering license.”
The preparation put in by CPS was evident during the first-time virtual symposium. “Our team had to rethink the way we approached the event,” said Adam Witte, Field Sales Engineer. “We completely rebuilt our promotional materials to better suit the virtual environment, and the extra work by everyone involved allowed us to reach a wider audience than in years past.”
CPS maintained its solid reputation as having a strong level of participation during the symposium, from the most engagement in all of its classes to most engineering credits distributed. “As a combined group throughout 10 states in the North, Central and South regions, we worked together and executed the best virtual symposium in history,” said Dakeisha Gross, Business Development Manager. “We were even able to play a virtual game with almost 50 engineers from around the world.”
