The UK's largest renewable energy exhibition and conference is getting larger and larger. It reached a milestone today as space booked and on 'hold' at next May's show has already exceeded the total space All-Energy opened with this year!
The dramatic growth of global interest in renewable energy is being spectacularly demonstrated by a substantial rise in space bookings for All-Energy, the UK's largest renewable energy exhibition and conference. Already, exactly six months before All-Energy '08 opens in Aberdeen on Wednesday 21 May 2008, space booked and on "hold" has already exceeded the total amount of space (2700m2) taken up at the 2007 show held this May.
"We saw a 40 percent growth in the amount of space exhibitors took in 2007 compared to 2006; and look well set to match this growth for 2008, we have taken this into account when drawing the floorplan, so companies who have not yet booked need not panic, but they would be wise to book up soon!" says project director, Judith Patten of Media Generation Events who organise the show in partnership with Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
"We are encouraged to see many of our previous exhibitors returning to take larger amounts of space; many large pavilion areas both from overseas (Austria, Canada, Denmark, Flanders, Norway); and from specific UK areas (Aberdeen City and Shire; East of England; Fife; Highlands & Islands; Orkney); and are delighted to welcome some companies exhibiting with us for the first time. We're certainly not resting on our laurels, but talking with a great many companies at home and overseas about their exhibiting plans and look forward to opening on Wednesday 21 May with a superb, and large, show.
"Now the hard work begins planning the all-important conference that will be addressed on opening morning by UK Energy Minister, Malcolm Wicks MP; and the Scottish Government's Minister for Enterprise, Energy & Tourism, Jim Mather MSP," she adds. "Over the next couple of months all our supporting organisations will be working hard with us to develop a highly topical and relevant conference, with streams and sessions devoted to every renewable energy source and to the challenges and opportunities facing the industry."

All-Energy '07 attracted 4000 participants from 50 countries; 350 exhibiting companies and some 220 speakers. The annual event is held in association with BWEA and Scottish Renewables, with The Society for Underwater Technology as its learned society patron; and Aberdeen City and Shire as host sponsor; and there are 26 other endorsing organisations.
