MECAL – Frans Brughuis
“Since 2012 we are member of HHWE. Especially the trade missions that HHWE has organized to Asia as well Asian delegates invited to the Netherlands were very important for MECAL for extending our business in the Asian market. Five years of membership has strengthen the relationship with other members which has led in some cases to a close cooperation. We experienced that as a group of Dutch companies it is easier to open doors in foreign markets than acting on our own.”
IHC IQIP – Teun Verschoor
“For Taiwan and China I am frequently dealing with HHWE. It is a pleasure to work with HHWE as they really put the highest priority on building relationships between Dutch Companies and Foreign Companies. HHWE is the bridge to connect with Foreign Companies and use the local Dutch Government offices to participate and set-up the meetings in China and Taiwan. The good relationship and cooperation between the triangle HHWE, Dutch Companies and Dutch Government offices makes all the events HHWE organize very successful, at least for IHC IQIP.”

Wind Fair participations are an excellent and essential way of doing business in the wind industry. HHWE organizes international wind fair participations in Europe, Asia and the USA according to a turn-key concept and without a profit motive. We secure optimal space and location to promote the Dutch wind industry to take care of all your needs such as registration, stand construction, lounge, catering, joint promotion and PR. Scale effects and, in some cases, governmental contributions, enable us to reduce the costs to a minimum, and take most of the work out of your hands. We will, at all times, guarantee a personal and Dutch feel.
Successful HHWE fair participations include the annually recurring China Wind Power (Beijing), the biennial WindEnergy Hamburg and HUSUM Wind, and the Wind Expo Tokyo. We often organize events during the wind fairs to gain exposure, networking opportunities and matchmaking for our members.
Save yourself time, money and effort and get the most out of your fair participation with HHWE’s joint trade fair concept.
Not all emerging wind energy markets have suitable and well-organized trade fairs. That is why, especially in the up-and-coming wind energy countries, a different approach is necessary. In some cases, more than a trade fair is required to achieve the objectives. For specific markets and target groups, HHWE organizes incoming and/or outbound trade missions. The program is composed in close consultation with the participants on the basis of joint vision, clear objectives and with attention to everyone's interests. Furthermore, the organization is completely taken care of by HHWE, where, in several cases, the government also plays a role and offers support by means of a financial contribution, and by offering the support of the Dutch embassy in the relevant countries.
The company visits always focus on clients in the wind industry. This could be developers, contractors, wind turbine manufacturers and suppliers, knowledge centers, engineering offices, universities and governmental agencies. We make sure that the right people are present, such as buyers, design departments, and/or the management. To ensure participants are aware of the latest developments in the country, HHWE provides relevant information such as actualities, doing business, cultural issues and do or don’ts.
A matchmaking session consists of centrally organized one-on-one conversations between you and the desired contacts. In some countries, it is important that you have good relations with the government. In those cases, we ensure that the government is represented in the matchmaking. This way the participants can benefit from these contacts as well.
HHWE has a wealth of valuable market information worth sharing with its members. We conduct our own market research but we also offer many interesting market studies from our extensive network.
Via our secure login function on hhwe.eu our members have unlimited access to all market information, presentations, information about specific activities, and contact information of interesting foreign parties.
HHWE conducts four general membership meetings a year. The purpose of these membership meetings is to keep members informed about current wind power developments and events.

We also welcome any suggestions that will help keep our association strong. You have an equal voice and can vote in deciding what the future export agenda of HHWE will look like.
