"What you can see here in 2016 is the number of stands not just of the private sector, but of local authorities and the wider part of the public sector who are undertaking all the projects; and, the sheer number of people. It is just a great transfer of knowledge between all the parties, helping one another to understand what works, and what doesn’t work"
Iain Watson, Director, Green Investment Bank
“We need to be here, it is where all our stakeholders are, and, more importantly, where our supply chain is. We come to exchange ideas, but, more importantly develop business.”
Tim Cornelius, CEO, Atlatis resources, Chairman of the MeyGen Project
"We decided to take the opportunity to launch our new tool, our portal, All-Energy was the natural choice for us to come and see that range of clients in one place at one time at the right time for us."
Fiona Grubb, Natural Power Consultants Ltd
"Deals are my business, this is what I am here to do … I’ve already done some, I’m looking forward to doing far more over the next hours"
Andy Drane, Davidson Chalmers LLP
Speaking about UKTI’s International Export Lounge:
"The lounge is an excellent opportunity for UK Trade & Investment to get our message out to the UK supply chain across the new and renewable sector; and the lounge here right at the heart of All-Energy gives us an ideal platform to do that … we’ve had a good number of companies on the stand and it has been positive."
Mark J Smith, UK Trade & Investment
"We’re a small to medium wind farm developer. We’re here to meet with banks and turbine manufacturers to fund our projects and have them constructed and operational."
Dr Keith Love, Muirhall Energy
"The key benefit is that you get to meet people from across the UK and Europe to talk about all your products and services in one room; and you meet people from across the industry in one go."
Nick Williams, Centrica
"Today has been absolutely fantastic for the Norco Group; we’ve already managed to secure over £70,000-worth of work here."
Finbar Kelly, Norco Group Ltd
"All-Energy is great for us we are introducing our new and cost-efficient wind turbine, it is manufactured in Glasgow – three miles from here. We are selling it all over Europe and we intend to become big in Japan as well."
Johnnie Andringa, Gaia-Wind Ltd
"We are very firmly focused on the future prospects for offshore renewable wind and also wave and tidal – the marine technologies. I am also now looking harder at what can the UK bring around high tech innovation solutions to make the technologies cheaper, more reliable, more sustainable. To me it says the UK has tremendous export opportunities and with all the skills we can bring I am very confident about the industry’s outlook."
Andrew Jamieson, ORE Catapult
“It’s a fantastic location to meet customers and to network, it’s what the conference is all about”
Mike Wilson of Ecosse Subsea Systems
"All-Energy is one of the leaders in exhibitions and events and we really wanted to make a presence here, there are some amazing companies here; we wanted to network, we wanted to meet customers in different businesses and I think it has been a really great day. We have had amazing leads. It has a great atmosphere."
Diya Ingleshwar, Dunster Biomass Heating
"I found out about All-Energy after I met with someone from the UK, and he recommended that we come because it is a very large trade show and I would have an opportunity to meet with people from various sectors and be able to promote Synapsuite in the renewable energy market."
Kristen Tomas Cowan, Milbank (USA)
"The talks have been really interesting - and seeing who else is here demonstrating. We have had great interactions both with the industry and with other academics who have been at the show"
Neasan O’Neill, Imperial College London
"I have been toying with the idea of coming to the show for a few years, it’s a way of looking at something that brings together a different mix of people than the more traditional shows. It’s as much of a fact finding and talking to other people as much as trying to sell our wares."
Alan Lawless, WSP Parson Brinckerhoff
"It’s been a whole range of people from directors of companies, chief technical officers, chief scientific officers and those are the people we tend to want to talk to because they are the guys who have the technical direction, the innovation direction, and the purchasing power as well."
Tom Copeland, 42 Technology
"Some of my guys here have been giving some of the talks, so it is a good way of getting the message out, and there are lots of friends old, and new, have arrived at the stand and are interested to talk and drink our beer"
Colin Goodrum, LDA Designs
"I just wanted to write a short note to pass on my congratulations for such a busy and positive event experience at All-Energy this year. All-Energy 2016 was definitely the buzziest ever and everyone we met onsite was very enthusiastic about the show. I sincerely hope we can continue with our relationship into 2017 and beyond."
Sarah Lansdell, Head of UK & National Events
"We have had really positive feedback on the 2016 show and have a lot of good business leads to follow-up. This is definitely a key show in the events calendar."
Natasha Volkk, Business Development Manager
"All-Energy was the one of the focal points of our calendar year and a fantastic place to network with potential clients across the renewables industry… The conference and exhibition both offer great opportunities to expand our business and to make valuable new contacts, our energy team look forward to returning in 2017."
