Over 2100 people gathered at Europe's biennial offshore wind conference, held this year at Berlin's Estrel centre December 4-6. The venue claims to be Europe's largest convention and hotel complex. Although attendance was dominated by the main offshore markets of host country Germany, the UK, Denmark, Netherlands and Sweden, delegates hailed from across the globe, with a sizeable contingent from the US. Outside the conference hall, 120 exhibitors demonstrated their products and services to the offshore industry. More than 1300 delegates packed the auditorium for the event's opening session.
