An exhibition area was also provided with over 40 exhibitors covering all sorts of services and products targeting the renewables’ market with a specific focus on the wind energy industry . At any time the stands were buzzing with interested visitors and exhibitors must have been very happy at how busy the day turned out to be with ample time given, between presentation sessions, to network and visit stands.
