Duncan Booker full interview

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!

Did you have a good show in 2015?

Absolutely!  It exceeded our expectations, which were very much focused on working with our partners on our stand to present a strong and positive message that Glasgow is open for green business. 

Did you do much/new business at All-Energy?

We wanted to meet as many businesses as possible on our stand and engage in as many conversations as possible about green economic growth.   It’s safe to say that we more than met our targets.  We were pleased to see potential new investors, businesses with new innovations and visitors with new ideas. 

What are you planning to do at the show in 2016? (Launch any new products? Do anything differently?

We’ll be back and have booked a stand once more near to the entrance.  Next time we’re going to present an even stronger business offer to promote indigenous company growth and inward investment around the low carbon sector.

Do you have any thoughts on Glasgow as the new location for All-Energy?

Glasgow is now the green capital of Scotland and the relationship with All-Energy will help to develop that status even more!

Any other comments

We want All-Energy to become even bigger in its new home in Glasgow so that it is not just the UK’s biggest renewables event, but also one of the biggest in Europe.
