The inaugural APAC Offshore Wind and Green Hydrogen Summit 2023 will be held in at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in August 2023.
Organised by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the three-day summit and exhibition will attract more than 1,000 delegates, including key global renewable energies bodies, Asia Pacific Governments, and global stakeholders such as the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the World Bank Group (WBG), and Global Offshore Wind Alliance (GOWA).
The Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB), which led the successful bid, is committed to attracting conferences that align with Victoria’s ambitious sustainability strategies.
Stewart Mullin, GWEC COO said: “When we were looking for the best place to hold our inaugural conference Victoria won hands down. The industry is buzzing with potential from the Offshore Wind Feasibility Licence that is currently open for the Gippsland region and the Victorian Government has really led the way in attracting interest from developers, component manufacturers and the greater renewables value chain. Add the fact that Melbourne is accessible, friendly and a great place to do business ensured that Melbourne was overwhelmingly our preferred venue.”
