Hannover Fairs USA, the U.S. subsidiary to Deutsche Messe organizer of the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology have announced a long-term partnership with The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) to further grow CanWEA’s Annual Conference and Exhibition. In concert with CanWEA, HFUSA will promote CanWEA’s Annual Conference and Exhibition among a global network of exhibitors, delegates, and attendees. The partnership will provide additional support to CanWEA members that also participate in wind energy events in Hannover, Germany and around the world.
HFUSA President and CEO Larry Turner said that the partnership with CanWEA represents a further investment in Hannover Messe’s growing global energy event platform, as well as an important strategic business initiative. “CanWEA’s strong reputation and wind energy expertise in the Canadian market is a tremendous addition to our North American industrial trade events and another opportunity to leverage Hannover Messe’s extensive global network,” he said.
“Deutsche Messe has a phenomenal track record over many years in producing wind energy conferences and exhibitions,” said Robert Hornung, President of CanWEA. “Partnering with such a well-established trade event management organization allows us to enhance the scope and diversity of conference exhibitors and delegates, and increase our reach internationally.”
The CanWEA Annual Conference and Exhibition is Canada’s largest wind energy conference. Attendees are leaders in the wind industry that are dedicated to supporting CanWEA’s efforts to push forward wind energy industry policy, communications efforts and business development objectives. Next year marks the 30th anniversary of the CanWEA Annual Conference and Exhibition, which will be held October 27-29, 2014, at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal in Québec. This premier event will bring together over 2,000 delegates and close to 200 exhibiting companies from around the globe to discuss opportunities in Canada’s emerging wind energy industry. The exhibition provides an exclusive opportunity to network with leading industry decision makers and to generate high quality business leads.
Canada continues to be a global leader in wind energy development with over 7,000 MW of installed wind energy capacity, enough to power over 2 million homes and equivalent to about 3% of Canada’s total electricity demand. With various projects now contracted to be built across Canada, the country will see on average 1,500 MW of new wind energy installations commissioned annually for the next few years.
Hannover Messe has been covering the energy industry for more than 40 years. Its portfolio of energy trade fairs focus on renewable and conventional energy production, supply, transmission and distribution. Besides wind energy topics on display during Hannover Messe, the topics are covered at its portfolio of energy fairs in South America, Turkey and the U.S. All global events showcase exciting ideas and content for energy savings technologies, hardware and software solutions, as well as the entire information and communication technology system for a smart grid response.
