International interest in the industry event has increased further: The share of international exhibitors grown to more than 50per cent (as compared to 44per cent in 2016). All key players of the entire value chain were present in the fully-booked exhibition halls, including 16 wind turbine manufacturers from Europe, the Americas, and Asia. The featured topics of this year’s flagship fair included Dynamic Markets, Cost Effectiveness, and Smart Energy, putting the spotlight on current developments in the globally expanding wind industry. All in all, WindEnergy Hamburg was attended by 35,000 industry visitors from 100 countries (as in 2016); the share of international visitors grew to 45per cent.

"WindEnergy Hamburg is the only global industry event of the wind energy sector," stated Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO, Hamburg Messe und Congress. "As the energy transition unfolds around the world, and more and more wind markets exhibit dynamic growth, the interest in sharing knowledge and ideas and staying informed is stronger than ever. The world's leading wind industry expo offered the right opportunities at the right time – an innovative platform for sharing information, doing business and networking at the highest levels,” Aufderheide continued. "What became clear in the discussions with international industry visitors and exhibitors more than anything else was that the Global Wind Summit is considered a launchpad for further growth."  In parallel with WindEnergy Hamburg, the global WindEurope conference was held at the Hamburg Messe fair site. Both events jointly formed the Global Wind Summit 2018.

Giles Dickson, CEO WindEurope, said: “The WindEurope 2018 conference has been a big success. The Global Wind Summit brought together the WindEnergy Hamburg exhibition and the WindEurope global on and offshore conference under one roof. The co-location and integration of the two events increased the level of interaction between all the different players in the wind industry. More than 2000 conference delegates delved into the key issues facing the industry. We looked at how wind is breaking new ground geographically, technologically and financially. And we had top-level speakers such as EU Climate & Energy Commissioner, Miguel Arias Cañete, and IEA Executive Director, Fatih Birol, plus European energy ministers.”

In a representative survey, 96per cent of industry visitors said expectations had been fully met. The most important reasons for attending this fair were to establish new business contacts, renew existing ones, and get information about new products and trends. 96per cent of visitors praised the excellent international networking opportunities, as well as the comprehensive overview of innovations and new developments in the wind industry they gained at the fair (97per cent). The presence of 40 national delegations from countries such as the United States or Pakistan, as well as energy ministers and other high-level representatives of many nations highlighted the significance of this knowledge-sharing event for the global wind markets.

The comprehensive coverage of topics at the trade fair was commended by 97per cent of industry visitors. Exhibitors and industry associations agreed that the business climate was excellent at this trade fair, a statement confirmed by representatives of the 23 national and regional pavilions at the event.
