EMEX is the event to attend if you are responsible for reducing your organisation’s energy spend and consumption. The event programme offers valuable industry insights, and looks at the latest and upcoming legislative changes and how these are affecting UK businesses in the UK – all key to understanding the risk, regulation and opportunities of being an energy consumer.

EMEX makes available exclusive content; case studies, expert presentations and panel sessions will be covered within four free educational seminar theatres. Expert speakers will cover key issues affecting the energy industry right now and those that will affect us in the very near future. Many sessions are CPD accredited.
