The Maine Energy Marketers Association and The Energy Marketers Association of New Hampshire are proud to report that we just had our most successful year ever. From Sunday, June 23rd through Tuesday, June 25th, over 300 people crowded together at the beautiful Cliff House for networking, education, good food and drinks. Thank you to our many sponsors and vendors who made this event possible for our membership. The conference blasted off with a 16 team Cornhole Tournament during the Sunday evening Welcome Reception. This year’s champions were Steve Cornforth and Charlie Page from Maritime Energy trailed closely by second place finishers Matt Poole and Robert Clifford from Colby & Gale. Both teams took home some rather exciting trophies. Monday brought in a beautiful sunrise (as seen below photo by David Heiser of PriMedia).
With over 50 vendors set up, there was plenty to see and do. According to Jamie Py, “The education this year far exceeds any other year to date. If nothing else, this lineup was worth the attendance,” (see page 17 for a full recap of the 2019 NNEEC education sessions). After Monday’s education, attendees were invited to the famous Vendor Blender with a delicious signature drink from REG called the “B20.” The festivities, however, did not end there. The Vendor Blender was followed by a formal dinner in the lovely Cliff House Ballroom. The windows that lined the back wall of the ballroom, peered over the rocky cliffs below adding to the mood of the already heartfelt awards ceremony. Entertain-ment continued with comedian Juston McKinney followed by an open bar at Nubb’s Lobster Shack. A great time and beautiful evening made for a happy group of attendees. Although all good things must come to an end, at least the 3rd Annual NNEEC ended with a relaxing morning of golf! In fact, can you think of a better way to end our most successful conference yet? Threats of rain didn’t scare us away and as luck would have it, there was very little until after the tournament ended.
Thank you again to all who attended and for making 2019 a HUGE success. We look forward to seeing you next year at the Mt. Washington Omni Resort from June 14th-16th in 2020!
