Alexandria, VA (PRUnderground) September 25th, 2017
For a consecutive year, Solar Power International opened their doors to a record-breaking crowd. The four-day event at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV welcomed 20,000 attendees from September 10 to 13 and showcased an expanded show floor and an even more robust educational program, bolstered by the co-location of Energy Storage International (ESI), Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America, the Smart Energy Microgrid Marketplace, and The Technical Symposium.
“This year’s event was a true testament to the growth and strength of this industry,” said Stephen Miner, President and CEO of Solar Energy Trade Shows, organizers of SPI and ESI. “A record-crowd of 20,000 attendees saw an even bigger and better show that included ESI, Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America, and the Smart Energy Microgrid Marketplace – a complete integration of these renewable technologies all in one place. We’re excited to continue the expansion and integration of these components in Anaheim for SPI and ESI 2018!”
Under the umbrella of North America Smart Energy Week, SPI expanded its scope to reflect the growth of energy innovation through the addition of ESI, Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America, and the Smart Energy Microgrid Marketplace. ESI came into its own as the largest energy storage conference in North America, featuring over 160 energy storage exhibitors on the show floor, dedicated full conference education, show floor education in Storage Central and an exclusive storage networking event.
