The partnership agreement between Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH and Messe Husum und Congress GmbH & Co. KG governing the organisation of the two wind energy trade fairs, in place since 2014, has been updated and extended until December 2029. As in the past, WindEnergy Hamburg will take place in even years, and HUSUM WIND in odd years.

“We are looking back on a successful partnership and are pleased to carry it into the future. Germany is a major business hub, and our continued partnership will safeguard its leading position in the onshore and offshore wind energy sector. As before, the two industry fairs will differ in concept to offer the wind energy industry a comprehensive and unique combination of events.”

emphasised Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO, Hamburg Messe und Congress, and Michael Lohmann, CEO of Messe Husum und Congress, when signing the new agreement in Hamburg.

The two trade fairs will continue to serve the wind energy sector featuring different concepts – WindEnergy Hamburg as the international flagship fair catering for the global market, and HUSUM WIND as an event focused on the German-speaking countries. Both trade fairs will be organised independently at their traditional venues, and supported by a joint advisory council.

WindEnergy Hamburg from 24 to 27 September 2024

Every two years one of the most fascinating industries meets for the leading global networking event for wind energy: At WindEnergy Hamburg, which takes place right in the heart of the vibrant northern German port city, around 1,400 companies from 40 countries present their innovations and solutions in ten exhibition halls to up to 37,000 participants from 100 different nations. Covering 68,500 m2 across the exhibition campus, equipment manufacturers and suppliers representing all stages of the onshore and offshore wind energy value chain provide a comprehensive overview of the market. Providers of everything from planning and project design to installation, operation and maintenance, and through to marketing, certification and financing take part to showcase their services. The expo is accompanied by conference sessions featuring top-ranking experts who address the industry's current key topics. The WindEnergy Hamburg team develop this programme jointly with their partners, including the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the European organisation WindEurope, the national industry associations VDMA and BWE, leading industry media, and companies from the wind energy sector. From 24 until 27 September 2024 all conference sessions will take place free of charge on four open stages located inside the exhibition halls. The H2EXPO & CONFERENCE, the international meeting place focused on the generation, distribution and use of green hydrogen, will again take place in parallel with WindEnergy Hamburg 2024.
