Inter Solar

Intersolar Europe Munich shines with renewable energies

The international fair „Intersolar Europe“ can be considered the guiding global fair in the field of solar technology. It is hosted by Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH & Co. KG together with Solar Promotion GmbH from Pforzheim. Until 2007, the fair had been located in Freiburg. The strongly growing number of exhibitors and visitors required relocation to Munich, where it took place for the first time in 2008 on the new fairground Messegelände in Munich-Riem. The core subjects of the fair are photovoltaic, solarthermy, and solar construction. The latest products and services from these areas are presented by the globally leading producers, sub-contractors, trading and service providers. Of course, the fair attracts a lot of qualified visitors from Germany and from all over the world. On the other hand, up to a certain degree, solar technology is an object important and interesting also for laymen. More and more people who do not work in the branch but are interested in the field come to communicate with exhibitors and attend the many seminars, lectures and workshops on the agenda. Thanks to the large growth of the number of international exhibitors and visitors, a branch of the fair took place in San Francisco for the first time in 2008. The Intersolar Europe Munich is easy to reach with public transport.
