The Solarday team attended the Solar Solution, a unique opportunity to start over. A step towards a new normal.
Dutch PV exhibition Solar Solutions International has opened its doors for the first time since the pre-pandemic days of 2019, to an audience which exceeded pre-Covid levels. According to Rolf Heynen, founding partner of trade show organizer Good! Events & Media, visitor registrations for this week’s show beat the 2019 figures by 10-15%. The large solar solutions hall in Haarlemmermeer, near Schipol Airport in Amsterdam, was filled with exhibitors and visitors as the three-day show kicked off yesterday. Solar Solutions managed to increase visitor numbers at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic is still keeping the world within its grip because of two factors, according to Heynen: The Dutch PV market has grown considerably, even during the pandemic, adding 10,000 full-time positions to catapult the PV workforce in the Netherlands to just under 29,000; and also, in Heynen’s words: “For many people it’s the first trade show in two-and-a-half years.”
