Spring 2023 PES-ICC Meeting
Denver, CO, April 30th – May 3rd, 2023 at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel
I hope everyone has had a wonderful first month of the new year. The Spring 2023 ICC meeting is fast approaching. We are excited to welcome you again to the IEEE Power & Energy Society’s Insulated Conductors Committee (ICC) meeting in Denver, Colorado at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. Located at the heart of downtown Denver, the Sheraton Connects the city’s most distinct and coveted neighborhoods. The 16th Street Mall, a mile-long pedestrian promenade with shopping, dining, nightlife and entertainment, is directly outside of the hotel’s front door. Among nearby attractions are Coors Field, Denver Art Museum, the Denver Zoo. Most of all, your presence in ICC, participation in ICC working groups / discussion groups and contribution to IEEE standards development are very important to our industry and greatly appreciated.
You are encouraged to reserve your room promptly and use the link available in the “Hotel Information” Section below to obtain a discounted rate. Please note, the hotel will close the reservation link prior to the meeting.
Advance registration for the Spring 2023 meeting will open on Monday, 27-March-2023 and will close on Friday, 21-April-2023. In addition to minimizing time at the registration desk so you can quickly start enjoying the meeting, there is a much lower cost for Advance Registration. Registration for the limited “Tabletop” exhibit space will also open on 27-March-2023. No early registration prior to the opening date will be permitted. As we are getting closer to the meeting dates, more information will be posted. Please check the ICC website often for updates. I look forward to seeing you in Denver.
