Renewable Energy Dominates Events Industry

The World Future Energy Summit has done it again. Not only has it achieved prominence in the financial, energy, government and construction sectors, it has scoped the top accolades at the prestigious ‘Event Awards’ held in London, September 26th, 2008.

The awards claimed were the ‘Best International Event’ and ‘Best Launch Exhibition’, beating off stiff competition from Gastech and LIVE EARTH, and Business Travel Show Dubai, respectively. The 2008 summit has now won a total of four industry awards with global recognition coming from Dubai, London and the international Association of Event Organisers.

Richard Hease, Chairman of Turret Middle East, event organisers of the summit said “We aim to be back in the running next year, our line up for January 2009 is bigger and better”. Turret Middle East organises the summit on behalf of Reed Exhibitions, Reed purchased the show from Turret ME after the success of the inaugural summit.

Judges were a mix of the event industry’s leading experts including top corporate event professionals from Sony Ericisson, Blackberry and Sainsburys. Jeremy King, Chairman of the Event Awards jury said “The judges were most impressed with the size of the World Future Energy Summit. How they achieved over 11,000 visitors from 70 countries with over 200 big name exhibitors in its first year was the reason that they won”.

The World Future Energy Summit is to take place for the second year in the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre on January 19-21, 2009. It is hosted by the Masdar Initiative, the world’s largest single investor in alternative and renewable energy. The event spans three full days and consists of an extensive conference and exhibition.

The Conference brings together the commercial experience of heads of state, professors, ministers, innovators and business men in the development and investment in the alternative, renewable and green building industry. The exhibition gathers the leading manufacturers and developers in the industry and hosts over 12 national pavilions with the newest technologies and project management in the market.
