Brazil’s energy sector remains a key market both within the region and globally, and its rapid growth over the past few years is expected to continue into the foreseeable future. Metering, billing and the customer relationship will be crucial in managing this growth to ensure utility and market sustainability.

The sixth annual Metering, Billing/CRM Latin America will take place from August 11-13, 2008, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The conference will capture the stories behind the increasing complexities involved in the customer-end technology sector. The 2008 event will review the challenges of “modernity” in utilities, such as how should utilities modernize and should this process be accelerated; integration within utilities and what it brings for their activities, for example in areas such as cost and loss reductions and how customers can be included; and metering for the efficient use of energy, which is now becoming an issue of concern.    

This year the event is sponsored by: Choice Tecnologia, Elster, FAE, Landis+Gyr, V2COM.
