Why attend?

Previous attendees have always appreciated the relevance of the complete event – conference and exhibition - and have found networking and relationship building at EWEA events thoroughly enriching. This event is for international wind energy professionals who want to gain a competitive advantage, further customer relationships, do business with the whole of the wind energy supply chain and learn about the latest technology advances and industry developments.

A must-attend event

  • Thousands of decision-makers attend EWEA events to get ideas and find solutions to challenges they face. At EWEA 2013 they will be able to see new technology demonstrated and choose the best for their needs. They know that to achieve competitive advantage it is important to keep up with technology.
  • At an international platform where the whole of the wind energy supply chain meet, you can find ways to cut costs and get more work done. Meet with your suppliers, source new products and build new business relationships.
  • The conference provides solutions. Focusing on translating ideas, experiences and theory into real, practical applications, conference sessions will give delegates useful knowledge and tools to take away, develop and implement.

"I'm expecting to see in EWEA 2013 exactly the same combination of things that we have always seen at EWEA events; a combination of commerce, technology and politics. And that's what this is all about! Next year in 2013, EWEA Annual Event will be looking east to the new territories - the new emerging markets - which for all of us in this present situation are very important"

Andrew Garrad, President of GL Garrad Hassan

Reinhold Mitterlehner
“Wind energy is not only key in securing Austria's energy supply and climate protection, it is also an important driver of our economy. Each new wind park creates national added value, new jobs, economic growth and future oriented know-how. More importantly, on the basis of a new legal framework in Austria (Ökostromgesetz), the sustainable growth of wind power is now fully on track. 2013 will be another record year in Austria for the construction of wind turbines. Therefore, we are pleased to welcome EWEA in Vienna in this special year.”

Reinhold Mitterlehner, Austrian Minister of Economics, Family and Youth

Stefan Moidl
“Austrian wind energy onshore sites are among the best in Europe and now generate more than 1000MW wind energy capacity. As the gateway to Eastern Europe, Vienna offers countless opportunities to the wind industry. We are very proud to host Europe’s premier wind energy event in Vienna 2013.”
