Having acquired All-Energy, the UK's largest renewable energy exhibition and conference, in July 2011 and bought a majority share in All-Energy Australia in early 2012, Reed Exhibitions is now expanding into the North American renewables market.
This new event is being held in association with the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) and, like the two other All-Energy events, will encompass all aspects of renewable and sustainable energy, combining a major exhibition and highly relevant and topical conference.
"Developing All-Energy Canada with OSEA is an important step in securing our position in the North American alternative energy market," says Jonathan Heastie, Exhibition Director, Renewable and Alternative Energy Global Group, Reed Exhibitions. "What's more it is a key element of our global renewable energy strategy, the expansion of which was a deciding factor when acquiring All-Energy.
"Our growing portfolio of global alternative energy events also includes World Smart Energy Week (Tokyo), World Future Energy Summit (Abu Dhabi), Asia Future Energy Forum (Singapore), and Fenesucro & Agrocana (Sertăozinho, Brazil). Over 165,000 visitors attended the 18 Reed Exhibitions' alternative energy events in 2011, meeting 3,000 exhibitors and taking part in fascinating and highly relevant conference sessions, and networking to great effect. We will leverage our knowledge and contacts within the industry through this portfolio of leading events to help develop All-Energy Canada".
All-Energy Canada will strive to replicate the success of its sister events, bringing together the renewables and sustainability sectors at one key event. Heastie continues, "Canada boasts excellent natural resources which are, and can be, used to generate clean, sustainable energy. Ontario, as Canada's most populous province, is leading the way in supporting renewables through the Green Energy Act (GEA) and OSEA's role in driving forward the green agenda, both in the province and across the country, was instrumental in our choosing them as the key industry stakeholder to develop All-Energy Canada".
Dr. David DeYoe, President of the OSEA Board, explains: "OSEA is thrilled that Reed Exhibitions has chosen to collaborate with us for this continent's All-Energy. Clearly they recognize the important role that OSEA has played in shaping the sustainable energy agenda in Ontario and in providing a positive influence in the balance of North America. The All-Energy event model has been successful in both the UK and Australia, and together we will make it a success here."
