For the first time, EWEA will hold the conference and exhibition in Frankfurt. Financing offshore is becoming more and more of a challenge, so EWEA has chosen to meet in the hometown of the European Central bank. Frankfurt is Europe’s biggest European financial capital, and a truly international business location. Messe Frankfurt is one of the most attractive and modern exhibition halls in Europe and has excellent transport links to the rest of Europe.
