POWER-GEN Asia and Renewable Energy World Asia, the region’s premier conference and exhibition for all aspects of the power generation industry, will return to Bangkok, Thailand from 2nd to 4th October 2013, at the IMPACT Exhibition & Convention Centre.

POWER-GEN Asia, collocated with Renewable Energy World Asia, is the leading force in delivering a platform for the power industry to meet, share information on the challenges facing the power industry and discuss solutions for advancing Asia’s energy future. Attracting 7,000 delegates and attendees from over 60 countries from across South East Asia and around the world, it is the industry’s premier conference and exhibition dedicated to the power generation,renewable and alternative energy industries.

Event Director, Debbie Stanford-Kristiansen, said, “We are delighted that POWER-GEN Asia will be returning to Thailand from 2nd to 4th October 2013, where we hope to continue upon the achievements of our 20th Anniversary edition, in Bangkok last year where we held our most successful event in the shows history, and enjoyed great support from leading organizations and governments from Thailand and South-East Asia as a whole. As a net importer of energy, Thailand is central to the South-East Asia region’s power development plans and a vital part of a region undergoing change, a key component of this being the US$100 billion investment in theenergy industry and its infrastructure within this part of the world.”.

The POWER-GEN Asia and Renewable Energy World Asia conference is a key forum for senior executives, industry leaders and senior engineers to discuss a range of important topics, the latest issues and solutions, in order to meet the challenge of the growing demand for electricity in the region, all under the 2013 conference theme of “Advancing Asia’s Energy Future”.

“The 2013 Conference Programme is once again taking shape impressively. With a vast amount of abstracts received for the Advisory Board to review this has resulted in 4-track programme featuring strategic and technical presentations. Special focus this year will be on finance and investment within the sector, the influence of fuel pricing and availability on power generation planning, and the importance of energy security to countries that lay within the South-East Asia region. The technical sessions will feature an all-round look at the latest gas turbine developments, cogeneration and CFB based power plants. There is a real focus regarding growth and opportunity in Asia in this years programme and we look forward to some lively and interesting debates at this event”, said Nigel Blackaby, POWER-GEN Asia Conference Director.
