24th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference: “The most inspiring platform for the global PV solar sector
The health of Europe’s PV industry is reflected in the high demand for space at this year’s Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference, being held in Hamburg in September, with the total exhibition area booked already exceeding the area of the previous exhibition in Spain.
The 24th conference, at the CCH Congress Centre and International Fair has seen an unprecedented level of bookings, months before the actual event begins and in view of this, the area available for the conference has been increased to 65,000 square metres.
Last year’s conference, in Valencia, saw 715 exhibitors from 37 countries participating. That exhibition occupied a total area of 50,000 square metres. It attracted 30,000 visitors from 106 countries.
Peter Helm, managing director of event organisers WIP, said: “The high level of advance bookings demonstrates that even in the current financial and economic crisis, photovoltaics is regarded as an industry of the future with high growth potential. This unique combination of the world’s leading PV Solar conference, with over 900 specialist papers, and an international PV Solar exhibition, which represents the whole industrial PV solar value chain, strikes a chord with this young industry that is characterised by numerous technical innovations.”
