Husum's future depends on vision and compromise
GERMANY: Husum WindEnergy's slogan of 2012 confidently read: "The leading international wind trade fair." Husum is well known for being the industry's only major conference with a firm focus on technology, and every two years it has drawn visitors from across the globe keen to keep up with the industry news and views on product developments. The banners around the show this year invited participants to the next event, in 2014, celebrating a 25-year span of the Husum event. A bitter dispute has emerged, however, over whether the event should be held in the town of Husum next year, and a rival bid for the event has come from nearby Hamburg.
