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!

Glass and Modern Technologies 2010


November 1-3 2010, Moscow, Russia

9th International Exhibition

History of Event

Autumn 2001 saw the first ever Glass Expo International Specialized Exhibition organized by the Glass Association of Russia. The Event attracted 78 attendees coming from four countries. It is important to note that Russia was facing hardships at the moment: by this time many plants and enterprises had lost their once strong relations with end consumers. That is the main reason why the Exhibition was crowned with big success. In an instant it became a solid platform for demand and supply behaviors in the global glass industry. So, the companies, willing to market their products in Russia and CIS countries, acquired a true guiding star.

The major goal of the pilot exhibition was attained. Producers and consumers were offered ample and attractive opportunities to enter into and develop good partnership agreements with due apprehension of the leading role of this Forum in the CIS glass market.

It is vital to note that Glass Expo was highly recognized by a number of Ministries and Federal Non-For-Profit Organizations.

The Russian exponents and participants coming from the CIS countries gained confidence in the high economic feedback of the Event. Since the year 2003 the number of Russian and CIS attendees has kept exceeding the number of attendees from the global arena. This fact demonstrates that Glass Expo is becoming increasingly popular in the national market.

Industry Background

In the year of 2009, the flourishing construction market was clouded by the spreading Global Financial Crisis accompanied with the sharp downturn of property industry. Although China is the first country that rided over the crises and the economy is steadily recovering due to an economic stimulus plan of 4 trillion RMB put forward by the Chinese Government, the sagging global market environment still made exporting enterprises suffering. How to help enterprises to explore more new business opportunities becomes the developing direction of Fenestration China.

Undoubtedly, The economic crisis also made a full impact on the exhibition industry. It was estimated that some international construction exhibitions contracted roughly by 50% owing to the all along dropping sales of construction enterprises. Nevertheless, both the exhibitors and the exhibiting spaces of Fenestration China 2009 got big rises at the rate of 15% and 21% respectively, representing its powerful market competitiveness and the widely recognition within its industry.
