In April 2014, more than 5,000 exhibitors and 180,000 attendees convened for five days at the Hannover Messe, the world's largest industrial trade show. Over 100 countries all over the world were represented. The trade show highlights innovations and groundbreaking solutions in all of the core sectorsindustrial automation and IT, energy and environmental technology, industrial supply, production engineering and services, as well as research and development.
"The event is absolutely awesome at all levels," says 2014 participant Tom Ranken, President of the Washington Clean Technology Alliance. "If you can't find partners, investors, customers, and competitors here, you just aren't looking."
A major focus of Hannover Messe is energy. Approximately one-third of the exhibit space at Hannover Messe is devoted to energy and related topics. Germany's energy transition from fossil fuels and nuclear power to renewable, non-nuclear sources is a major opportunity for Washington State businesses.
The Washington Clean Technology Alliance is proud to present this informational breakfast event for those interested in learning about developing international business
About half of the participants are European. The European Union is the largest trading partner of the United States and a great market to expand your business. Europeans value goods and services from the U.S., but doing business in Europe is much different from doing business in the States. Europe is a much more relationship-oriented business culture and understanding what this means will help you expand into this market
Larry Turner, President & CEO of Hannover Fairs USA, has over 30 years of experience marketing and selling internationally and will share his insights in how to develop your business in Europe. The European tradeshow culture is key to developing business in this market and taking advantage of these face-to-face meetings allows you to establish trust, develop distribution channels, and generate leads.
