Hanno Fecke, an experienced organiser of wind energy trade fairs, is to become ‘Wind Energy Ambassador’ for Composites Europe, reflecting the exhibition’s expanding commitment to the wind energy sector.
Nearly 1 in 7 visitors to Composites Europe are wind energy professionals seeking information on materials solutions, manufacturing processes and maintenance options.
Fecke’s background is wind energy exhibitions. He was appointed managing director of Messe Husum in 2002 and under his leadership HUSUM WindEnergy emerged as the wind sector’s international flagship event. He’s also overseen the development of the renewable energy trade fair New Energy Husum. After switching jobs to become managing director of Messe Offenburg he founded the tri-national trade fair Windenergie expo & congress.
“Wind power is faced with the challenges resulting from steadily increasing cost pressure,” says Fecke. “Automation and series production require innovation and new materials.”
Composites Europe 2014 takes place at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre in Germany on 7-9 October.
