We have taken part in All-Energy for a number of years – we started attending as delegates but decided to get more involved by sponsoring and exhibiting in 2012 and 2013. I went for the first time in 2014. I had heard it was the largest conference for clean energy in the UK and that it was a well-attended show, bringing together the largest group of renewable energy developers and supply chain partners. It was great news for us when the show moved from Aberdeen to Glasgow in 2015. Glasgow as a location for the event made more sense - it was easier to travel to and there was much less need for accommodation.
All-Energy 2015 was a great show for us. We were exclusive sponsors of the show floor conference and seminar theatres and we also had members of our team and some of our clients speaking in the various conference sessions. The event helped us to significantly raise our profile before, during and after the event, which we may not have achieved otherwise.
We are looking forward to being headline sponsor again in 2016. This time, we are taking a stand next to the Offshore Wind Conference theatre, which will enable us to meet with clients more easily. We are currently discussing what to do on our stand next year, so watch this space!
Given the reach of our firm and the size of our energy and natural resources practice, we attend a number of other shows throughout the year. All-Energy stands out as it covers such a wide range of subjects within the energy industry.
