|On June 9, 2010, Intersolar, one of the world’s largest solar technology trade fairs, will once again get underway in Munich, Germany. The trade fair, previously known as “Intersolar” will take place under the new name “Intersolar Europe” in 2010. The change of name reflects the continuing internationalization of the trade fair, which is now represented in many locations around the world. The newly titled international solar technology trade fair has already set a new record for exhibition space. Just a few months before the trade fair is due to begin, 90% of the planned exhibition space of 120,000 square meters, spread across 11 halls, has been booked up. This means 2009’s total has already been surpassed. Around 1,500 exhibitors are expected to attend the event at the New Munich Trade Fair Center in June 2010.
On June 9, 2010, Intersolar Europe will open its doors in Munich. Intersolar, the world’s leading trade fair, is now represented in North America, India and China, as well as in Europe. Intersolar Europe is the largest of the four events. 90% of the planned exhibition space of 120,000 square meters, spread across eleven halls, has already been booked up. This represents a further increase on last year’s total, which itself had risen by 37% on the previous year to 104,000 square meters across nine halls.
Exhibitor numbers will also surpass last year’s total. Around 1,500 exhibitors from around the world will be presenting their products and services at the New Munich Trade Fair Center in June 2010, and the number of registered exhibitors has already exceeded expectations. The organizers are also optimistic as far as visitor numbers are concerned, and are expecting over 60,000 visitors from all over the world to attend the 2010 event. In 2009, 50% of exhibitors and 39% of visitors to the exhibition grounds of the New Munich Trade Fair Center came from outside Germany. “We are very excited about Intersolar Europe 2010. The trade fair’s continuing growth is a clear indication that the significance of Intersolar as a meeting point for the international solar industry is still increasing. The figures so far suggest that this year’s exhibition will be another resounding success,” said Horst Dufner, Intersolar Project Manager at Solar Promotion GmbH, Pforzheim, Co-organizer of Intersolar Europe.
The clear division of the trade fair into photovoltaics and solar thermal sections makes it easier for exhibitors and visitors to find their way around. As in 2009, a hall will be dedicated exclusively to the area of “photovoltaics production” The organizers of Intersolar Europe--Solar Promotion GmbH and Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH & Co. KG (FWTM)--will be once again cooperating in this area with the PV Group, an initiative of the international semiconductor association SEMI specializing in photovoltaics. The clear thematic structure of Intersolar Europe received a very positive response from all who attended last event in 2009. “It helps participants find their way around and offers visitors the perfect framework for a structured tour of the exhibition,” said Klaus W. Seilnacht, CEO of FWTM.
“Intersolar” Becomes “Intersolar Europe”
In 2010, Intersolar will take place for the first time under the name of Intersolar Europe. Since 2008, the organizers have been able to establish the trade fair internationally, setting up Intersolar North America in San Francisco, Intersolar India in Hyderabad, and the first collaboration between Intersolar Asia and SOLARCON China in Shanghai. “The new, clear system of our international trade fairs ensures ease of communication and orientation for our exhibitors and visitors around the world. At the same time, it also allows us to deliver a clear brand promise to the industry worldwide; that of optimized networking for the global solar industry and all related industries at an international trade fair,” commented Horst Dufner.
Intersolar Europe will take place between June 9 and 11, 2010 at the New Munich Trade Fair Center, Germany.
