The MMI Conference Program for 2009 has now been drafted and as expected there is a heightened interest in AMI, Intelligent/Smart Grid, Smart House and improved metering technologies for water, gas and electric meters.  

The consequences of all these “Smart” infrastructures will be felt in data management, standards and policies, regulations and of course most of all with customers and the environment.  The Conference will cover all these areas and more.

This is the largest speaking program of any Utility Metering Conference in Australia’s history; with 35 presentations, plus a Workshop on Standards, a Panel Session on Regulations and a Water Technologies Demonstration Session. Awards and give-aways, Cocktail Parties and the famous MMI Conference Dinner will entertain delegates and ensure a congenial atmosphere for advanced networking with the who’s who in the utility metering industry. 

Speakers and Panel members include Rick Stevens, from Hydro One in Canada who will have implemented about 1 million AMI meters by the time of the Conference, Shaun Cox the MD of South East Water, Peter Alberts of VENCorp, Mike Peevey the Californian Regulator and many, many more.

We must not forget to tell you that we have one of the largest metering technology Exhibitions already assembled with the following companies represented:

plus our sponsors like Landis+ Gyr, Itron, IBM, Utiligy and others that are planning their own special marketing programs.

By the way the Exhibition area is now almost fully subscribed and if you wish to discuss opportunities still available please contact Deanna Zammit, MMI Conference Manager on

Tell your friends and colleagues to look out for the Program, which will be available as of next week and we’ll look forward to the best MMI ever starting on 25 May 2009 at the Crown Promenade Hotel, Melbourne.  See you there.

Best Regards,

Michael Zammit
Chairman, MMI Conference
