EDIST 2021 is taking place virtually January 13-14

The Electricity, Distribution, Information Systems and Technology (EDIST) Conference & Exhibition is an educational conference and exhibition addressing critical engineering, operational, IT and management issues faced by Ontario’s LDCs. Suppliers, manufacturers and service providers have the opportunity to network and showcase their products and services. 

The health and safety of all our members, stakeholders and partners is of utmost importance to us. With that in mind, we have decided to hold EDIST 2021 virtually. The virtual platform will allow for:

  • Larger audience potential as geography will not be a barrier
  • On demand access to all presentations
  • Other unique and exciting features!
