The World Energy Symposium event's Success was a testimony to energy conservation and energy creation concerns for the public sector, private sector and higher education. The quality of questions and concerns has raised the bar for all change agents to address the perfect storm of issues confronting our urban environment.  Ronald H. Bowman, Jr., Current Executive VP StructureTone,  Former Executive Vice President Tishman Technologies,  Author-"The Green Guide to Power-Thinking Outside the Grid"


My business partners and I attended and exhibited at the Symposium on both days, and found the event to be informative, energetic, well-planned and well-attended. We met many people in the renewable energy industry with whom we will be in contact to discuss opportunities to work together on sustainable development projects.

Thank you and your team for a most informative and productive event at the World Green Symposium... Your staff demonstrated a high quality to satisfy the customers and exhibitors. The connections were fantastic. Having direct access to the DOE; SBA; US army and other quality exhibitors made the event that much more successful. The connections and relations we developed will go a long way to drive revenue as well as developing long term business relations.

"The WGES DC speakers were world-class, and the symposium classes were first rate, our company made numerous important contacts who viewed our technology demonstration.  WGES DC is one of the best events I have attended in years". Lawrence Silverman, GridPlex Networks and Zumo Energy
"The World Green Energy Symposium was a great platform… Not many forums have an all-inclusion of stakeholders from policy makers to the individuals and entities that must spend the financial resources to meet such initiatives….Samuel Burlum, Extreme Energy Solutions…


“I appreciated the chance to engage.  The event was worthwhile, the participants engaging, and the success of getting the green energy message out was clear” .U.S. Federal Government Officer…


The WGES event was fantastic. WGES, brought together under one umbrella, high-level decision makers from government and municipal agencies who were committed to finding innovative green energy and technology solutions. These decision makers cared, listened, and pointed us in the right direction. Thank you WGES.  Donta' D. Bell,  ApplyRapid, Inc.
