For the further expansion of future energy and mobility technologies there is a great need for the application of new methods in the present times. The insecurity of current supplies because of the situation in North Africa and the recent earthquake in Japan which crippled nuclear power reactors have opened a fresh debate for the imminent need for low-risk alternative to nuclear power as well as petroleum in order to secure independent energy supplies for the future. As such, Hydrogen technologies, fuel cells and electric drives are all set to make a vital contribution as they are increasingly ready for practical application, following a long phase of development. With this perspective in view, the H2Expo 2011, one of the leading international trade events focusing on Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and Electric Drives Industry, will be held from June 8-9, 2011, at Hamburg in Germany. The holding of the 8th International Conference and Exhibition on Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and Electric Drives in Hamburg makes it special because Hamburg has been declared as the European Green Capital 2011.
The tradeshow will be offering itself as a forum for the world’s leading experts to discuss the latest trends and developments in mobile, stationary and portable applications in the automotive, maritime and aerospace and energy supply industries. Germany’s second biggest city Hamburg is quite accessible. The Hamburg International Airport handles 69 international airlines that operate direct flights from major cities around the world. There are many airlines and travel companies that offer fabulous airline discount
on business class tickets to Hamburg as well on such events. Since there is still much time left for the event, it would be good if the passengers book their tickets in advance in order to get them at cheap rates. The visitors will find the tradeshow beneficial as there would be a specialized focus on usage and promotion of hydrogen energy.
The conference is expected to see the participation of nearly 70 speakers from 11 countries. For visitors from major cities in the US like New York and Atlanta, it is good that they opt to travel by business class to Hamburg
on American Airlines and Delta Air Lines for a comfortable journey as the flight is long haul. Besides, other airlines flying to Hamburg include KLM, British Airways, Lufthansa, Air France, United Airlines, Swiss Airlines, and many others. The exhibitors at the tradeshow will be showcasing market-specific products and services. The event will start on June 8 with a symposium on the current state of hydrogen and fuel cell technology and on electric drives. Attending the tradeshow has its own benefit as it will be bringing together suppliers and potential customers of the market offering them a good opportunity to make new business contacts.
