  • Duncan Booker, Sustainable Glasgow


    What are your thoughts of All-Energy?
     

    I knew about All-Energy before it came to Glasgow so was particularly excited about the decision to locate in this great city from 2015.   I’d heard lots of good things about All-Energy, but was quite bowled over by the sight of a packed exhibition hall with such a diverse group of exhibitors when I came to the SECC for the opening day.   The conference was also outstanding and the two together were a great combination.

    Why do you choose to exhibit at All-Energy?

    We had a stand close to the front of the exhibition hall in a really good place to tell the world about Glasgow’s ambitions to become a more sustainable city.  It was a great opportunity to get some key messages across and in particular to engage with the business community.  We’ll be back again next year and in subsequent years!

  • Bernard O'Hear, UKTI

    UKTI (now Department for International Trade) was helped greatly in its mission (to help UK companies export) by being All-Energy’s Key International Trade Partner in 2016. All-Energy provided a platform for DIT representatives from our overseas network - Europe, Africa, America, the Middle East, Asia - to showcase the demand for UK capability in the markets they represent. The appetite for information about overseas opportunities was intense and some of our representatives, like Kerstin Rath, from Germany were barely able to stop during the two days of the event. The UK’s clean energy companies are world class and many of them need to know more about the export opportunities available to them.
  • Frank McAveety, Glasgow City Council

    As chair of Sustainable Glasgow and Leader of Glasgow City Council, I’m delighted that All-Energy’s first year in Glasgow has been such a success.

    Glasgow is a city with a proud industrial history that is now a major player in the sustainable and green economy. Our city always extends a warm welcome to new friends and it is no surprise that the decision of All-Energy to locate at the SECC has been rewarded with big increases in delegate numbers and exhibitor bookings. I want Glasgow to become one of Europe’s most sustainable cities over the coming years. We’re already the location of the greatest number of renewables jobs in Scotland. We’re developing a green jobs strategy to help provide a skills pipeline for this important sector. And we’re at the forefront of the smart cities revolution. This is our greenprint for a more sustainable future and we’re delivering it right now.

    As Scotland’s Green Capital, Glasgow is a natural home for such events and conferences and we look forward to welcoming All-Energy again in 2016. Glasgow and All-Energy make for a great partnership and I know that we will flourish together over the years to come!

  • Giuseppe Sauli, EL Power

    Why do you choose to exhibit at All-Energy?

    We produce power converters (inverters) for small and medium wind turbine applications. Last year the UK market was really interesting for us (we installed around 100 converters), so we decided to participate with the target to promote our products and look for new customers.
     
    Did you have a good show in 2015?

    We came to Glasgow having with the wind market in mind. We didn’t find new customers for wind applications but we got good feedback about other products (for Hydro and Energy Storage applications). So I can say we reached our goal.

  • Ian Forsyth, 2G Energy

    All Energy was a good show and attendance was very high. Lots of interest not just from Scotland, but UK and also abroad.

    We choose to exhibit at All-Energy to improve awareness of 2G Energy and also identify new business opportunities, this is our main objective, and we met this at the 2015 show in Glasgow.

    We gained several good leads we are still pursuing.

    Glasgow was a much preferred venue for us it was a good location.

  • Mark Peebles, EWT UK Ltd

    What are your thoughts of All-Energy?
    EWT first attended in 2011 in Aberdeen.  The event has grown in stature since then, as the surge in all types of renewables developments has expanded.

    Why do you choose to exhibit at All-Energy?
    All Energy is one of the premier renewables events in the UK but also attracts a high proportion of overseas visitors. The event pulls in the key decision makers for all types of projects, from the consulting engineers to the ecologists to farmer, developer and utilities.

  • Julie Webster, Shepperd and Wedderburn

    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.

  • Isobel Parsonage, S & C Electric Company

    What are your thoughts of All-Energy?

    Glasgow seems to be a better location for the event with a much better infrastructure to attract attendee’s.
     
    Why do you choose to exhibit at All-Energy?

    Allow us to meet smaller developers in the past, particularly  in onshore wind. Not sure how if this will continue in the coming years 
     
    Did you do much/new business at All-Energy?

    Previously in Aberdeen we have received orders from meetings held at All Energy .  I hope the move to Glasgow and the size of the venue does not dilute the event
     
    What are you planning to do at the show in 2016? 

    This event for us focuses on renewables outside of the DNO environment so we will see nearer the event.
     
    Do you have any thoughts on Glasgow as the new location for All-Energy?

    Venue and infrastructure much better. I think this should be the new home but like many other events it’s in danger of becoming diluted now the venue space allows it . We have attended this event from the start and in the past its being in our programme. However now like all events we review this on a yearly basis based on value.
