Whats New This Year
WINDPOWER is a pivotal event for wind professionals, and offers educational, networking, and exhibition experiences unmatched by any other wind energy event in the world. AWEA develops resources and designs activities to provide attendees with the greatest return on their monetary and time investment – from top-notch programming, to exhibits worthy of multiple trips to the exhibit hall floor, to networking that yields beneficial and lasting relationships.
Here’s what’s new this year:
An invitation-only network that enables you to use your social networks to initiate and manage your face-to-face, real-time interactions – where valuable business relationships develop. The Toolkit's social networking and scheduling applications allow you to find and connect with business partners, colleagues, speakers, and other important attendees based on business segment and matching interests, then communicate and coordinate face-to-face meetings at the event.
Access expanded profiles about attendees, speakers, and sponsors from the popular
LinkedIn platform, as well as event registration information, and detailed information about who's attending.
See recommendations from other attendees with matching interests, and find out who else is attending the event. Coordinate communications and meeting requests easily and securely.
WINDPOWER Knowledge Hub
The WINDPOWER Knowledge Hub is open exclusively to Main Conference Pass attendees, making networking at WINDPOWER easier and more worthwhile than ever. All educational session moderators and speakers have been given the chance to spend time at the WINDPOWER Knowledge Hub, speaking with attendees at the close of their sessions. You’ll want to take advantage of this exclusive and limited-time networking opportunity to meet industry leaders, experts, and seasoned professionals.
