About half of the around 140 OWEMES delegates were from Italy, only a few from Spain and France, and the remainder mainly from Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands. There was a glaring lack of delegates from Britain, a key offshore market, apart from personnel from UK consultancy Garrad Hassan. This was probably due to a British offshore wind conference a month prior -- or perhaps developers were far too busy preparing sites to sit around and talk about them. The Italian springtime setting seemed to be a major draw for the northern Europeans present. More than half of them were researchers.
