All-Energy '07 hits the right green buttons

Yet more proof that if you hit the right market at the right time with the right show you’re on to a winner for both exhibitors and visitors, the UK's largest renewable energy exhibition and conference, All-Energy '07, surpassed expectations with some 4,000 attending from home and overseas.

Attendance was up 40% over the 2006 event (when 2850 attended), the number of exhibitors had risen by 50% (220 in 2006; and 350 in 2007) occupying 40% more space, and the conference saw nearly 220 speakers take part.

Exhibitors came from a dozen countries, while overseas visitors hailed from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Greece, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, The Philippines, Portugal, Spain, Taiwan and the USA.

“In every way this was the biggest and the best All-Energy,” said project director Judith Patten of Media Generation Events which organises the annual show in partnership with Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, where the event was held. “Completed exhibitor questionnaires are still coming in, but we are delighted by the feedback we received during the show and now once people are back at their desks.

"With 16 wave and tidal devices featured in the show, and growing number of exhibitors from all sections of the industry, ranging from bioenergy to microgeneration and wind to solar we have a tremendous base on which to build the 2008 and future events – space requests are coming in thick and fast! We are delighted, too, to be able to announce that following the success of H207, All-Energy will incorporate H208 involving the hydrogen and fuel cell community, which is eager to get over the message that they can offer solutions to challenges right now, not far off in the future."

The timing of the 2007 event could hardly have been better. The Planning White Paper was published two days before All-Energy opened and the Energy White Paper was published on its first day. The publication of the latter meant that Energy Minister Lord Truscott was too tied up to be at All-Energy on the opening morning, but there was a video link with him on the second morning enabling him to bring those attending the plenary session up to date on relevant issues in both White Papers.

The day after All-Energy closed, well-attended technical tours took place to the Glens of Foudland windfarm and to a farm-based biogas plant.

Extending the reach of the event, many of the presentations from All-Energy '07 are available at www.all-energy.co.uk.
