Messe Düsseldorf says that companies from the field of solar production technology, such as manufacturers of machinery, plants, components and materials for the production of solar end-products, can now register for “solarpeq – International Trade Fair for Solar Production Equipment”.
The first edition of the four-day trade fair will be held at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre in tandem with glasstec, in the hope that solarpeq will ride off its previous success. The solarteq event will run from September 28 through October 1, 2010.
With around 1300 participating companies, glasstec is an international trade fair for the glass industry, glass machinery manufacturers and the glazier trade. Solarteq’s categories cover all aspects of solar production technology, including crystalline and thin-film PV, and are designed for companies that offer machinery and plants for the production and processing of silicon, ingots and wafers, solar cells or modules, or production engineering components or materials.
Egbert Wenninger, member of the board of management of the Grenzebach Machinenbau GmbH, a glasstec exhibitor said, “We welcome the addition of solarpeq to glasstec. Production technology is the decisive factor in the race for competitive prices for solar power in the photovoltaics industry. Cost-saving innovations in this area provide forward momentum for the entire sector. The combination of solarpeq and glasstec allows us to approach international customers against the backdrop of an established, leading international trade fair.”
The last glasstec with its comprehensive supporting program comprised of Special Shows, professional symposia and conferences attracted 55,000 trade visitors to Düsseldorf, 56% of whom came from abroad. With 68%, the ratio of international exhibitors was even higher.
