2016 Manatt Energy Forum


The Manatt Energy Forum will be held at the beautiful Carneros Inn in Napa, California, on Thursday, March 31 and Friday, April 1, 2016. The Energy Forum kicks off with a renewable energy-focused site tour and wine tasting at Cardinale Estate and Winery on Thursday afternoon. A welcome reception and dinner will be held for all attendees on Thursday evening at The Carneros Inn. On Friday, the Energy Forum will host roundtable discussions with informal interactions between attendees, both of which have marked the success of this event for the past decade.

Manatt professionals will facilitate a robust dialogue with policymakers and industry thought leaders on how evolving policies affect the increasing confluence of energy commodities, markets and technology. Open and candid discussion, rather than prepared remarks and slide shows, will be the order of the day.
