In order that the solar market can greatly benefit from the many different disciplines that will visit Interbuild, Plumbdrain, Frigair, Glass and Hardex, a special SolEnergy pavillion has been created enabling manufacturers wishing to reach and be seen by all the visitors attending.
As solar is very much driven by the sun we have strategically positioned the pavilion outside between Halls 5 and 6 and at the entrance where visitors will enter, leave and cross from one hall to the next. The attached plan will illustrate this better.
The pavilion will be covered by tents especially designed for outdoor exhibitions and have the proper shell scheme giving each exhibitor privacy. By doing this the exhibitor is able to display the product/system in the outdoors and have realistic demonstrations of the product in working mode.
The second attachment shows the SolEnergy Expo stands from which you can book your space and see the position you will have in relation to the halls.
Interbuild and Plumbdrain will occupy hall 6, Glass and Hardex and overflow of overseas exhibitors will occupy Hall 7 and Frigair (HVAC & R) will occupy Hall 5. As plumbing and airconditioning start working closer together because of the energy saving that can be gained with the use of heat transfer technology, SolEnergy is well positioned to show how solar can be used to save energy not only on its own but by working with the HVAC &R and Wet Services disciplines.
A full promotional campaign has been planned including The Star newspaper, trade & technical publications, direct mail and posters will be placed closer to the event. PR has already commenced and pre registration for visitors is now open. Complimentary tickets will be available for exhibitors to do their own promotion.
SolEnergy will be supported by SolEnergy newsletter, recently launched, aimed at all the disciplines that form part of the decision making process for solar.
There will be various workshops taking place together with skills competitions enabling the correct type of visitor to attend.
The MTN Expo Centre (formerly NASREC)
This venue has been totally revamped and offers both the visitor and exhibitor a venue that is user friendly with wide open spaces, paved area and up market entrances to the Halls and the different areas.
Previous Interbuild and the co locating exhibitions have shown a marked increase in visitors every event that has been run there since returning to the venue some eight years ago.
