All-Energy 2008 sees dramatic rise in take up

The dramatic growth of global interest in renewable energy is being spectacularly demonstrated by a substantial rise in space bookings for All-Energy. Already, 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 (2,700 square metres) taken up at the 2007 show.

"We saw a 40% 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," said project director, Judith Patten of Media Generation Events, which organises 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," Patten continued. "We're certainly not resting on our laurels, but talking with a great many companies at home and overseas about their exhibiting plans and we look forward to opening on in May with a superb, larger show."

All-Energy '07 attracted 4,000 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, along with 26 other endorsing organisations.

The 2007 conference sessions covered offshore and onshore wind; wave and tidal; bioenergy (biofuels and biomass); carbon capture and storage; hydrogen and fuel cells; hydro; microgeneration; policy; grid; the power industry's view; overseas market opportunities; supply chain opportunities; skills – opportunities and challenges; finance and funding; renewables for communities; a session for the farming community; technical workshops on health and safety in the wind industry; and aviation/radar; and 'innovations from' sessions from Austria, Canada, Denmark and Norway. Many of these topics will be covered in the 2008 conference.
