SUNDERLAND, United Kingdom is preparing to cement its place on the offshore renewable energy map, after signing up to attend the UK’s biggest sector event. Sunderland City Council and Port of Sunderland will attend this year’s annual All-Energy 2012 Exhibition and Conference in Europe’s ‘Energy City’ Aberdeen later this month, an event that attracts some of the world’s leading industry lights.
All-Energy 2012, which takes place from the 23 -24 May, will feature conferences and discussions with sector experts from 14 different European countries, as well as representatives from businesses looking to source new partners and suppliers.
The event will also showcase the complete range of renewable and sustainable technologies on offer to the industry. Matthew Hunt, director at the Port of Sunderland, said: “Sunderland has a lot to offer the sustainable development and offshore industry – we believe we are uniquely placed for businesses in this field, and indeed firms in the sub-sea engineering sector, looking for a hub.
Attending this event is a positive step forward in making people aware of what we have on offer in Sunderland, and how we can help businesses to grow and prosper through delivery of a tailored, flexible service. “Events like this represent a great opportunity to meet with businesses and individuals with whom we can build ongoing partnerships, and potentially commercial relationships, so it is a fantastic platform that we believe will add real value to the work that we’re doing to make Sunderland a location of choice for businesses in this sector.”
