Industry Leaders Forum – Energy and Telecommunications

Energy and Telecommunications

Energy and Telecommunications

Buffalo Niagara’s energy and telecommunication sectors power and connect regional businesses and the community as a whole. The region’s access to low-cost electric power has always been essential to business attraction and retention and is critical to competing in a changing economy.  At the same time, changing regulations and increasing costs are impacting both the sector's ability to compete and attract needed talent. Join BNP as we bring leaders together to collaborate, strategize and chart the future of energy and telecommunications in our region.
