The annual Aclara Client Conference on May 9-12, 2011, at the Renaissance Hotel and Suites in Nashville, Tenn., will provide almost 650 attendees the opportunity to learn about new Aclara solutions for advanced gas, water and electric metering.

Each year, the conference provides up-to-date training to enhance technical and customer-service skills when using Aclara systems. Customers attending the conference also are briefed on upcoming enhancements products. Attendees provide feedback to Aclara and meet together to exchange best practices, share solutions to challenges and validate strategic directions.
