Windforce exhibition cancelled

Monday, 7 March, 2016 - 09:45

WAB has cancelled the exhibition part of this year’s Windforce. The offshore wind industry conference will go ahead as planned in Bremen from June 7 - 9, 2016. For Windforce already registered exhibitors can rent an exhibition space at the WAB joint booth or nearby at the WindEnergy.

„This will permit us to focus exclusively on the conference contents“, says WAB e.V.’s Board Chairman Klaus Meier. „At the global exposition in Hamburg, our members, exhibitors and visitors will find the optimum forum to present their products and services for offshore applications“, he adds.

At their pavilion at WindEnergy Hamburg, WAB offers interested exhibitors spaces for booths and further exhibition areas close by. Exhibit space at the world’s leading wind energy trade fair is now already more than 85 % booked up. More than 100 WAB members have already booked their own booth at the show.

WindEnergy Hamburg has steadily evolved to become the leading international trade fair for the wind energy industry. At the 2014 show, some 33,000 trade visitors from all over the world visited more than 1,200 exhibitors from 33 nations. This year, the EWEA Conference will be held in parallel with WindEnergy Hamburg as well. A further wind trade fair on top seems to be too much of a good thing.
