USA: New Exhibition Premiere of Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America
Deutsche Messe is launching its first-ever energy-themed exhibition in the US market, Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America, which will be staged alongside Solar Power International at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas from 10 to 13 September 2017.
Solar Power International with its 650 exhibitors and 18,000 visitors is North America's biggest trade show for the solar energy industry. Also taking place alongside Solar Power International is Energy Storage International, America’s biggest energy storage exhibition as well as the Smart Energy Microgrid Pavilion.
“Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America is therefore a perfect fit for Solar Power International. The respective technologies covered by the shows are closely interrelated and growing in importance,” commented Benjamin Low, the International Director in charge of Energy shows at Deutsche Messe.
Entering the Northern American market
For more than 20 years Deutsche Messe has been organizing the Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries as a distinct showcase at Hannover Messe. In 2016, the showcase featured more than 160 exhibitors from 25 nations. “We want to offer this international community a new platform in the highly attractive US market,” Low said. Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America is being organized via Deutsche Messe’s subsidiary Hannover Fairs USA in cooperation with Tobias Renz Fair.
Deutsche Messe also operates several other energy-themed trade shows outside of its home market of Germany, including CANWEA and Solar Canada, both of which are held in Canada, and Electrotech Eurasia and ICCI, which are held in Turkey. All of these shows are international offshoots of Energy, which is held annually in Hannover, Germany, as part of Hannover Messe and which, with 1,200 exhibitors, is the world’s biggest trade show for energy technologies.
