From 15-18 September 2015, HHWE has participated as an exhibitor at Husum Wind 2015. Four HHWE members showcased their products and services at the Holland Pavilion: Huikeshoven, Pontis Engineering, We4Ce and IHC IQIP.
Husum Wind is one of the major energy exhibitions in Germany, famous for its fantastic atmosphere and unparallelled network oppurtunities. The participating HHWE-members have made frequent use of the network oppurtunities, like Arnold Timmer (We4Ce): "Husum is the place to meet. It gives us a few days to be seen by both existing and potential customers, the networking opportunities are endless." With more than 20.000 visitors and 600 exhibitors, Husum Wind was a great success again. The Holland Pavilion - this year organized by Brandmarion - was well attended and provided participating HHWE-members a platform to jointly present the Dutch wind energy in the international wind market.
The fair in Husum was created 25 years ago as one of the first wind windenergyfairs. Therefore Hsum still has a great esteem by many companies and is still seen as the place where it all began. Also this year Husum Wind appeared as an international phenomenon that has tremendeous appeal for both established companies and newcomers, who see Husum as the perfect opportunity to present themselves. Husum Wind is facing fierce competition from a similar fair in Hamburg (Germany). The organizers of both fairs have now agreed to proceed with both events: Husum will now primarily focus on Germany and neighboring countries and Hamburg more on the international market. Judging from the number of visitors from the Far East, it is questionable whether this turns out as organizers provided.
HHWE-members feel that exhibit at a Holland Pavilion has a lot of benefits: Individual participants are stronger, the costs are lower by shared services and there is a clear view under the flag of Holland Branding.
