The International Energy & Environment Trade Fair, GENERA 2022, has opened its first space allocation round, with good participation forecasts, as evidenced at the first meeting of the Fair’s Organising Committee. The meeting took place on 22nd March, chaired by the Institute for the Diversification & Saving of Energy (IDAE) of the Ministry for Ecological Transition & Demographic Challenge. Company bookings are already 40% higher than for the previous edition in 2021, with notable growth in international participation. These forecasts suggest that this edition will do even better than the satisfactory results achieved in 2021. The largest trade platform for this industry, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, will have the renewed support of the leading stakeholders in this critical sector of the economy. The event will take place from 14th to 16th June, in parallel with the fourth ENVIRONMENT & SUSTAINABILITY FORUM, FSMS, in Hall 10 of the IFEMA MADRID Exhibition Centre, in synergy, with sustainability and the challenge of decarbonisation as a shared goal.

Attendance at last November’s GENERA was over 30,000 participants -of which 20,014 attended in person (it was held in a hybrid format), 8.5%  more than at its previous edition in 2020. In terms of international attendance, 5.6% of the Fair’s visitors were from abroad, from 54 countries, with 49% of participants from 27 countries, reaffirming once again the importance of the Fair as an international business platform for the renewable energy sector. GENERA brought together a total of 498 participating companies and 211 direct exhibitors.
