Top Conferences for Electrical Engineering in the US in 2020
Engineering conferences are great venues to network with potential clients and employees, as well as learn new techniques in the industry. Conferences are effectively a must for electrical engineers looking not only to further their careers, but also to benefit of the company they represent. Implicitly or explicitly, a company’s engineer who is sent to a conference will act to promote their employer to other vendors and potential clients. It is a great opportunity to subtly send out calling cards while simultaneously getting answers to technical difficulties the company is experiencing.

5. IEEE Annual Green Technologies Conference 2020
April 1-3, 2020
Sheraton Hotel Downtown
Oklahoma City, OK
The Green Technologies Conference is an event conceived to address 21st-century challenges in securing green and clean energy sources. It aims to encourage understanding and persuade collaboration from experts with various backgrounds and disciplines to address the challenges of adopting green and clean energy sources as well as the challenges posed by energy grid operations as they relate to building a resilient power grid.
With the theme of "Collaborative Technologies," the main goals of the event is to foster collaboration and networking such that those relationships can, in turn, drive technology that will increase efficiency and improve the quality of life. The event is hosted by IEEE, IEEE USA, Mercer, TIGA, First Solar, and New York Life. For companies and individuals who wish to submit their activity/paper to support green technologies, the following tracts are welcomed: energy generation & storage technologies, environmental, legal, social, economic, and political impacts, radar, weather forecasting, water and sanitation, and energy usage, reduction, and conservation.
6. IEEE SusTech 2020: 7th IEEE Conference on Technologies for Sustainability
April 23-25, 2020
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Santa Ana
Santa Ana, California
With next year's theme, "Technologies that contribute to sustainability in all applications affecting human life," the SusTech 2020 is designed to explore the evolution and implementation of science, engineering, and technology as they relate to attaining a sustainable lifestyle. The event is expected to involve engineers, scientists, technologists, and scholars from various disciplines. They plan to hold a dialogue on environmental issues and collaborate on ideas that will develop and utilize tools and intelligent systems.
