Renewable Energy Leaders from Across the Globe Pack theRETECH Conference & Exhibition; 2011 Dates Announced

More than 3,000 government, business and technology leaders from 51 countries attended RETECH 2010, the world's premier event for the renewable energy technology industry.  Based on the much bigger than expected international turnout and the burgeoning renewables marketplace, TradeFair Group, the event's producer, is planning for an even bigger conference and trade show next year.  TradeFair Group is pleased to continue its partnership with the event's founder, The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE).  The partners also announced the 3rd Annual RETECH Conference & Exhibition will be held September 20 - 22, 2011, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, once again where Government, Finance, Utility and Technology Leaders Connect for Renewable Energy.

"The industry support we received for RETECH 2010 far surpassed our expectations," said Hunter Jones, RETECH Show Director. "It is clear from the strong worldwide attendance of movers and shakers in the renewables space, and extremely positive feedback from all industry stakeholders that RETECH has established itself as the meeting place for the renewable energy business.  Working together with ACORE's visionary leadership, we will continue to distinguish RETECH as an unmatched platform for connecting with the global renewables industry."

"ACORE is delighted to be continuing its successful partnership with TradeFair Group," said Michael T. Eckhart, ACORE President. "We look forward to continuing to build the RETECH Conference & Exhibition as the leading all-renewables trade show in the U.S., bringing renewable energy into the mainstream of our country and being the major event of the year for the renewable energy professional services community."

In addition to a cutting-edge conference featuring more than 250 speakers at standing room only sessions covering wind, solar, hydro, ocean, geothermal, biomass, biofuels and waste, RETECH 2010 featured the nation's leading all-renewables exhibition. The show floor featured over 200 exhibitors across all renewable energy sectors, including equipment manufacturers and suppliers, finance and investment firms, research & development companies, project developers and operators, law firms, construction companies, NGOs, trade associations, government agencies, and renewable energy development, equipment and technology companies. A variety of RETECH Side Events produced by sponsors, NGOs and international governments also helped to drive the buzz and excitement about emerging developments around the world in renewable energy.

Exhibitor feedback and post show surveys indicated activity on the show floor was robust as exhibitors showcased thousands of products and services that are driving the growth of the multibillion dollar renewables marketplace. Walker Rutherfurd, Managing Partner, KRK Capital Partners, LLP commented, "RETECH 2010 was a great example of the technologies, people, and solutions that will redefine our world and secure a bright future for generations to come."
