Solar Power International 2010

  

October 12 - 14 2010, Los Angeles, USA

Solar Conference and Expo


Solar Power International (SPI) offers unparalleled opportunities to grow business and network with industry leaders. The show is a must-attend event for solar industry professionals, utility executives, investors, technical experts and policymakers, as it offers the ideal environment to build cooperative relationships with the most professional, knowledgeable product and service providers in the solar energy business. Industry veterans and newcomers alike meet face-to-face to jointly strengthen the industry's position and create new business opportunities for the U.S. solar energy market.

The SPI Difference

There are many existing and new solar events popping up around the US. So why should your company use its resources to participate in this one?

First, Solar Power International has been established as the only "must attend" solar event in the US. It is the largest solar conference and expo in North America, currently by a factor of more than 5, and attracts the widest range of professional attendees. The event also educates consumers through a one-night public opening of the expo hall.

Second, the money you spend to attend Solar Power International is used to support the industry and grow US solar markets. Proceeds from the event go to SEPA and SEIA, the 2 non-profit presenters, and are used to support the organizations' year-round activities. Many other solar events in the US are put on by for-profit groups.

Event History

Solar Power International (SPI), previously called Solar Power Conference and Expo, was created in 2004 when the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) joined together in partnership to fill an obvious void: North America was missing a business-to-business solar conference and expo. With an industry growth rate of more than 40% per year, there was a need for a single event where industry could come together with potential customers, policymakers, investors, and other parties necessary for continued rapid growth. It didn't take long for the event to establish itself as the premiere solar event in the US, growing from 1,100 attendees to over 24,000 in just six years!
