The 2022 MCG Energy Virtual Users Conference

Annual Energy Conference for MCG Energy

MCG Energy’s 2022 Virtual Users Conference on October 20, 2022, was an ideal opportunity to interact with MCG staff and provide input into product development and the MCG roadmap. This free event enabled current and prospective MCG Energy software users to share feedback and direction on the day-to-day operation and future of MCG applications. The virtual energy conference itinerary included General Sessions, Presentations, Market, and Product User Group sessions. This virtual meeting was a platform for MCG Energy and our guests to meet and learn how other organizations are addressing challenges and the future of the energy industry.
