Wind, wave and tidal energy event RenewableUK is moving to The NEC in 2013, with more than 5,000 visitors expected.

RenewableUK, which has been a key trade and professional body for the UK wind and marine renewables industries since its inception in 1978, chooses a different British city each year to host the event organised by the British Wind Energy Association.
 
The three-day event will run from 5 to 7 November 2013 and feature agala dinner in the city centre, as well as a conference, exhibition and careers fair at The NEC.
 
Almost 300 companies active in the UK wind, wave and tidal energy sector will be on display at the exhibition including manufacturers, developers, contractors, consultants, suppliers/service companies, research institutes, engineers and recruitment consultants.
 
This year’s event is taking place in Glasgow from 30 October to 1 November.
 
“We’re delighted to be bringing RenewableUK to The NEC and Birmingham for the first time,” said RenewableUK director of events for marketing and membership Garth Halliday.
 
“We attract global visitors from our nearly 700 strong corporate members, which makes Birmingham and The NEC’s central location, with its close proximity to the airport and other transport links, perfect for our needs.
 
“For an event of this scale, we need a venue that provides us with huge space and flexibility, which The NEC has.”
 
The NEC account manager David Gallagher said the venue is fast becoming the home of shows with a green and sustainable focus.
 
“As well as growing association events, larger consumer shows, ones that cater for mixed audiences and huge conferences of this scale, The NEC is showing its credence of being capable of hosting any event, whatever it maybe,” he said.
 
“We are really looking forward to welcoming RenewableUK and its visitors next year.”
 
The NEC group witnessed a dip in exhibition and event business during the financial year to 31 March 2012. However, it said its annual financial result was ahead of expectations despite a dip in revenue and profits.
