Wind Energy Hamburg 2020 Opens Digital Portals Tomorrow
Unusual times require unusual measure – and new ideas. Sometimes a proven concept has to be reinvented entirely: From 1 to 4 December 2020, WindEnergy Hamburg will be held as the first purely digital event in the history of Hamburg Messe und Congress. After the trade fair had at first been postponed from September to December, it quickly became clear that holding a leading international trade event with exhibitors and visitors from 100 countries was going to be an impossibility in the year 2020. “We have reinvented the entire concept of the trade fair and got more deeply involved in the ongoing transformation of the exhibition sector, at a significantly accelerated pace. WindEnergy Hamburg will be the first in a series of purely digital events organised by Hamburg Messe und Congress. Within a very short period of time, we developed a new digital platform that includes two live streams.
From 1 to 4 December 2020 WindEnergy Hamburg will be broadcasting two all-day live streams at www.windenergyhamburg.com, the so called “Wind TV”: The paid channel “WindTV Premium Stream” will be broadcasting from WindEurope’s Brussels studio. All programmes will be available on-demand following the live broadcasts.
“WindEurope’s live WindTV stream will include the annual WindEurope conference and a whole load of other features – videos, interviews, entertainment. There’ll be top speakers from industry, government, finance and technology – and from other walks of life including music and sport. All in a range of different formats. It’s absolutely not your usual Zoom webinars!” explains Giles Dickson, WindEurope CEO. WindTV Premium will cover a wide range of topics, from the development of global wind markets and challenges related to permitting procedures and community engagement, to hydrogen from wind power, to technologies, digitalisation, electrification and system integration, and through to innovations for onshore and offshore wind and challenges facing the supply chain of the wind energy industry. The list of participants
includes such names as IEA executive director Fatih Birol, the European Commissioner for Energy, Kadri Simson, the Chairman of BASF SE, Dr. Martin Brudermüller, as well as Fridays for Future activists.
The free-of-charge “WindTV Open Stream”, produced jointly by WindEurope, GWEC and Hamburg Messe und Congress, will likewise broadcast for four days from three studios in Brussels, Shoreham Port (UK) and Hamburg.
