By Anthony Capkun
December 5, 2013 – The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) announced a long-term partnership with Deutsche Messe—through its North American subsidiary, Hannover Fairs USA (HFUSA)—to “enhance and expand” CanWEA’s Annual Conference and Exhibition, starting with CanWEA 2014 in Montreal.
“Deutsche Messe has a phenomenal track record over many years in producing conferences and exhibitions on wind energy and related themes,” said Robert Hornung, President of CanWEA. “Partnering with such a globally respected trade event management organization allows CanWEA to enhance the scope of our conference programming, the diversity of our conference exhibitors and delegates, and increase our reach internationally.”
Next year marks the 30th anniversary of the CanWEA Annual Conference and Exhibition, which will be held October 27-29, 2014, at the Palais des Congres de Montreal. The event is expected to attract almost 2000 delegates and more than 150 exhibiting companies from around the globe to discuss opportunities in Canada’s wind energy industry.
