The Energy Event Powers Up at New Location for 2011

After an extremely successful event in 2010, preparations for The Energy Event 2011 are now well underway and with a new venue and over 70 exhibitors already confirmed, the event looks set to grow from strength to strength. The Energy Event is the UK’s only major event dedicated to energy procurement, management and efficiency and is free to attend.

Moving to the Birmingham NEC, The Energy Event 2011 will take place on the 13th and 14th September. The change of venue reflects the growing importance of energy matters to organisations of all sizes and will allow the event to take advantage of the improved layout and facilities of purpose-built exhibition halls plus the NEC is also better equipped to cater for the increase in visitor numbers which had been causing problems in terms of car parking and general access at previous venues.

This change in venue represents the first step in the next stage of growth of The Energy Event after it was announced during the 2010 event that it had been acquired by Emap Connect. Exhibitors and visitors alike can expect to see significant investment and backing from the new owners.

Sponsored by British Independent Utilities, a world class systems-based utility consultancy that specialises in large multi-location portfolios, The Energy Event 2011 will continue to offer visitors its superb free seminar programme which gives delegates the opportunity to hear viewpoints from industry experts on a range of relevant topics that really matter to those in the field.

Other co- sponsors that have been announced include: E.ON and powerPerfector. And, once again the event will partner with the most recognised organisations, reflecting the wide spectrum of industries that are relevant to the event. For The Energy Event 2011 these are EIC, the Energy Services & Technology Association (ESTA), the Major Energy Users’ Council (MEUC) and Energy Procurement.

In addition to the seminar programme some of the biggest names in energy generation, energy procurement and energy management technology and service providers are exhibiting. Amongst the exhibitors, core disciplines such as heating, compressed air, motors, drives, ventilating, air conditioning and lighting are well represented as are other technologies including voltage optimisation, thermography, and water softeners. Exhibitors specialising in energy monitoring and targeting, energy procurement, consultancy and purchasing are also present. For more information visit
