For exploring and strengthening the relationship between branding and the energy sector, the event will host workshops, a networking night, and the CHARGE Awards, recognizing the world’s best energy brands.
Charge Energy Branding brings together c-level executives and other key members of the energy and communications sector to learn from each other and move forward together.
