Announcing ClimaCon 2020: The Weather Intelligence Conference

Update: ClimaCon 2020 is over, but you can watch all the sessions now!

_________________________________________________________________________________ is thrilled to announce ClimaCon: The Weather Intelligence Conference!

The truth is, weather forecasting isn’t sufficient anymore. People and businesses need to know what to do and they need to know in advance. The future is weather intelligence, and that future has arrived.

The impact of unexpected weather costs trillions and constantly puts people at risk. For businesses, unplanned weather slows shipments and supply chain schedules, delays on-demand deliveries and ETAs, damages cargo and assets, makes insurance and energy prediction impossible, and puts employees at risk of both hazardous working conditions and harmful air quality. The problem is that weather forecasts aren’t helpful anymore. Businesses need to know what to do and they need to know in advance.

With Weather Intelligence, however, you don’t just get the forecast — you get the predictive operational impact of incoming weather so your business can optimize decisions ahead of time.

The world’s leading companies that you rely on every day such as Uber, Delta, Ford, National Grid, ITS ConGlobal, already rely on weather intelligence to power their operations and business decisions. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the weather industry’s first-ever ClimaCon 2020: The Weather Intelligence Conference, where in addition to amazing speakers and content, will be unveiling a brand new product launch that will change the weather industry forever. 

ClimaCon is the live digital event where you will hear from industry leaders on how they use predictive weather intelligence to:

  • Save millions on global operational costs and staffing
  • Improve ETAs for delivery and on-demand by 25%
  • Avoid $10M accidents across the supply chain vertical
  • Unlock substantial new revenue opportunities for insurance and energy companies
  • Dominate the 2020 NASCAR season

On September 15 at 9 AM EST, you’ll learn the latest developments on how leading executives in your own industry are innovating with cutting-edge strategies. You can attend the all-day event, or simply attend the individual sessions most relevant to you and your business. Here is the agenda and schedule:
