It’s time for wind energy’s most important expo
Don’t miss the Global Wind Summit, which starts in Hamburg on 25 September; it is the biggest and most important meeting of the wind industry worldwide. It combines the world’s leading wind industry expo WindEnergy Hamburg with the global conference of WindEurope to create a high-powered, unique platform for business, networking and information for the onshore and offshore wind industry. These two top events, the expo and the conference, will be held side by side from 25 to 28 September 2018 at the Hamburg Messe site. Here is the unmissable PES preview.
Exhibitors, visitors and conference participants are expected from some 100 countries. The 9 exhibition halls of the leading wind industry expo WindEnergy Hamburg are already almost fully booked, which means 1,400 exhibitors and some 35,000 trade visitors will be there in September.
The WindEurope Conference, to be held inside the exhibition, features more than 250 speakers, providing a first-class programme on the issues facing the global wind industry. ‘The expo and the conference complement one another to provide a combination unmatched anywhere in the world,’ says Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO Hamburg Messe und Congress. ‘Hamburg brings together all of the main decision-makers from both business and government,’ says Giles Dickson, CEO WindEurope, ‘giving vital input for the continued progress of the wind energy worldwide.’
WindEnergy Hamburg – focus on three main topics
WindEnergy Hamburg is the only global industry expo for the onshore and offshore industry. The 1,400 exhibitors expected there from 40 countries include all the leading international companies and specialist suppliers for the whole of the value chain. They present their product innovations and customised solutions for the wind industry on a total of more than 65,000 square metres of exhibition space. ‘The strong showing by globally active companies means that every organisation with a name and reputation in the international business will be represented in Hamburg, showcasing their innovations,’ notes Bernd Aufderheide.
WindEnergy Hamburg 2018 puts the focus on three major subjects: ‘Dynamic Markets’, ‘Cost-Efficiency’ and ‘Smart Energy’. ‘How to develop new markets, how to make your product competitive in auctions, and how to use wind power for all the energy applications and needs of the future – those are some of the decisive questions to which visitors will get answers,’ says Bernd Aufderheide in summary. ‘The Global Wind Summit in Hamburg is the place to meet key players, pioneers, and new start-ups in the industry with their highly specialised products and services, helping to drive further progress of the wind industry worldwide.’
