THANK YOU FOR FOLLOWING US ON OUR JOURNEY
To our visitors, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, association and media partners, the Government of South Australia, Adelaide Convention Bureau and the Adelaide Convention Centre, we thank you for your ongoing support. AES 2018 has now wrapped up and we are extremely pleased with the results and overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received so far. The ability to do successful business face-to-face has always, and will continue to be our prime focus. The relocation to Adelaide allowed exactly this; successful business, thought provoking conversations and compelling content, all in the most progressive Australian State that is embracing renewable energy and energy storage. Thank you for following us to Adelaide.
For Adelaide, the 2018 event saw the largest space occupied, the biggest display of exhibitors and brands on offer, the largest contingent of international exhibitors – it was a record breaking Adelaide event. It was also the biggest event in terms of visitor attendance; once again, we thank you for your support.
Your support ensures that this event remains the most important and informative energy storage event in Australia.
2019 dates will be announced soon, so watch this space.
