PV Tech Expo will take place from 21st - 24th April 2009 at the Shanghai Everbright Exhibition and Convention Centre. The expo will be held concurrently with one of the largest SMT and electronics manufacturing events in China � Nepcon China, the event with a track record of attracting over 16,255 visitors this year. The obvious synergy between the two industries means running the two shows side by side will provide enormous benefits for both exhibitors and visitors. PV Tech Expo China looks set to become the leading photovoltaic manufacturing event in China, joining the series of high-quality, global manufacturing events organised by Reed Exhibitions.
Demand in the photovoltaic market has called for a dedicated exhibition of this calibre in China and news of the event has been extremely well received by manufacturers in China and across the globe. The event is expected to attract participants from Germany, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Singapore, UK, USA, Taiwan and Hong Kong regions. PV Tech Expo will be dedicated to the latest and most innovative manufacturing technologies and equipment for the Photovoltaic industry in China. It will provide a unique, state-of-the-art commercial environment where exhibitors will have an unparalleled opportunity to meet and conduct business with the professional audience of engineers, technicians, buyers and specifiers.
PV Tech Expo China will serve as the networking platform for equipment suppliers with potential buyers via a series of high-profile technical conferences. It is designed to demonstrate the very latest technology on the show floor to create brand awareness and to generate sales leads in China. The very latest products and services will be showcased by exhibitors from leading companies in their fields of evaluation/testing and analysis, devices/materials, manufacturing equipment and systems, cleanroom/ESD protection and various construction services. Reed Exhibitions expects its high-profile exhibitor list to attract a visitor profile to include solar cell and module/electrical/house/plant construction and cogeneration manufacturers, as well as government and other public offices, universities and national institutes.
Leading solar cell manufacturers in China include companies such as Suntech, Motech, SolarWorld, Yingli and JA Solar. These companies are among those that occupied 18.5% of the global marketplace in 2007, an increase of 5.5% from 2006, and contributed 35% of the 3,436MW global solar cell market. With 2008 continuing this upward trend, 2009 will be prime for companies looking to increase their market position further with their own specialized and dedicated photovoltaic manufacturing industry event. Shanghai is one of the most vibrant cities in the world and will provide an exciting location for the event. It is also ideally located for the 500 companies in the neighboring Province of Jiangsu who focus on renewable energy, with six of these companies listed on overseas stock markets. The Jiangsu Province also represents 80% of the total Chinese production and more than 25% of global production.
PV Tech Expo China is supported by the VDMA with other international associates coming on board. 2009 will be an exciting year for the Photovoltaic industry with an opportunity to see the latest products and services under one roof, meet buyers, enhance corporate branding, take advantage of great networking opportunities and connect with the media in the industry.
