The events are designed to address national and international attendees and give a platform for stakeholders to converge for business, education and networking. The event expects to become a key forum for Vietnam’s power needs, and will be taking place from 12 - 14 September 2018 at Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC), Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. With the intention of creating an all-encompassing energy exhibition for Vietnam, The 4th edition of RE & EE Vietnam 2018, co-located with Electric and Power Vietnam 2018 will focus on Vietnam’s resurgent renewable energy opportunities driven by new positive legislatures which has encouraged renewable energy adoption particularly in the Wind and Solar sectors.

The power industry market in Vietnam offers many challenges – from capacity expansions in coal, combined cycle, wind and solar power generation, to emissions management, smarter grid operations, efficiency improvements from generation through to consumption point and better power plant management. At its last edition in 2016, Electric & Power Vietnam boasts of a record 4,609 trade buyers, including 195 group delegations from major power factories and enterprises across the nation. For 2018 the organizers expect 7,500 sqm of occupied space, 7,000 trade visitors, 180 participating companies from 22 countries and regions and International group pavilions (China, Germany, Korea, India, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey).
