European wind association to back Hamburg Wind Energy Trade Fair

Among the many exhibition organisations jostling to establish their event as the industry's primary showcase, Hamburg Messe has strengthened its hand by signing up the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) as official partner. EWEA will participate actively in the staging of the second WindEnergy International Trade Fair, to be held in Hamburg, Germany, in May. The first Hamburg trade fair was held in 2002. Hamburg Messe is one of the world's leading exhibition organisers with extensive facilities in Hamburg. "We are going to be a very active partner," says EWEA's Corin Millais. "It is a departure from the past for EWEA to be involved in a commercial venture, but this is not going to replace our conferences," he adds. A wind power trade fair has a different role." Whether EWEA's largest turbine making member, Vestas, will again boycott the Hamburg event remains to be seen. The failure of Vestas and Enercon to exhibit at the previous WindEnergy trade fair -- the only major wind turbine companies not present -- disappointed many (Windpower Monthly, July 2002). Competing with Hamburg Messe in Germany are the Hannover fair and the HusumWind fair.
