The Solar and Energy Storage Show is the only way to reach everyone we want to in the industry – and in the masses!

The event is incredibly useful, how can you put a value on it?

It is the single most effective means of getting our name Sunvertec known to the industry and connecting with the business people we need to. During the two days we collected more than 100 business cards from interested people and are now busy following up all the new leads and contacts.

We have done many solar trade shows across the globe and value for money this one was right up there as the best.

The backend support team is very professional and put together a world class event.

If you’re interested in breaking into the Australian market this is the place to start.

We have already booked our space for the 2017 Show!

It holds enormous value for our brand. We used our tracker to scan attendees and the count came in at 199 but many went un-scanned so all up we reached hundreds of prospective industry partners. I also spoke across all three conference streams and reached hundreds more people in the process.

Many people came from interstate and told us this is the only solar show they attend all year
