The international events will be the biggest and most international meeting point for business, networking and information for the whole of the wind industry – onshore and offshore. These two top-level meetings will be held in parallel at the Hamburg Messe exhibition site from 25-28 September 2018.

The Global Wind Summit brings together decision makers from business and government to discuss the current market situation and explore future perspectives. It showcases the latest technical developments for optimisation, yield increase and cost reduction. What’s more, many business deals are expected to be closed in Hamburg, spurring job creation and permitting substantial savings in carbon emissions.

Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO Hamburg Messe und Congress: “As the organisers of the world’s leading expo for wind energy, we are combining our expertise with that of WindEurope to provide the best possible development platform for global growth in the wind industry. Nowhere else in the world is there a high-powered and absolutely international industry event like the Global Wind Summit in Hamburg in 2018.”

WindEnergy Hamburg is the only leading global expo for the onshore and offshore wind industry. This is where all the leading international players and specialist suppliers throughout the value chain make their presentations in the 65,000 square metre space. 80% of the space has already been allocated, one year before the start of the expo. The organisers are expecting some 1,400 exhibitors with their latest products and services for all areas of the wind industry.
