Wind Energy. More than 10,250 delegates, 500 leading exhibitors, 400 presenters and 100 expert speakers joined the European Wind Energy Congress EWEA in Copenhagen from Monday 16 until Thursday 19 April 2012.“I have been attending EWEA in a number of cities, but I must say that Copenhagen has been the most enjoyable show ever,” explains Steve M. Jackson, Sales and Marketing Manager at SEM Limited, who manufactures elements to wind mills, and continues: “It has been a really good show, very well organised. And I have already associated with both existing and potential costumers, so I am expecting a high outcome.”

Copenhagen was chosen as the host city for EWEA because of Copenhagen and Denmark's reputation within sustainable energy, and in particular wind power. EWEA's choice underlines Copenhagen's international position as a leader when it comes to sustainable meetings. Steen Jakobsen, congress director at Wonderful Copenhagen, says: “Both from the UN climate summit, COP15, and the current EU presidency, we have gained in-depth experience in how to develop large-scale, sustainable events.” The congress itself took place in Bella Center, Scandinavia's largest congress centre.
