German trader mulls first intl solar exhibition in Iloilo City
A German trader is planning to hold the first international solar products exhibition in this southern city by February 2014 in recognition of the city’s progressive development in this part of the country.
Heinz Dieter Bender of ek168 corporation based in Germany has vast experience in holding exhibitions in East Germany and the proposed exhibitions in Iloilo City will be made up mostly of products such as solar cells, modules, photovoltaic panels, inverters, controllers and other tools and equipment made in Germany, Europe and the United States.
An initial of 20 companies, producers and suppliers in Europe had already signified intentions to join the exhibition in Iloilo City. Other exhibitors will include producers in the United States and Asian countries, Bender said.
Married to an Ilongga from Leon, Iloilo, Bender said he has no problem understanding the Ilonggo language and people and found that the city is ripe and suitable for such a big international exhibition.
Solar energy is an inexhaustible renewable power which the Philippine government is pushing and harnessing as another important source of power.
Bender assured the German products are competitive in cost with other products in the market but of much better quality. Proposed for the exhibition are market encounters between the local users and buyers and suppliers from Europe, lectures and the chance to exchange ideas on the products, display and presentations.
Potential exhibitors and buyers may contact him at CP 0926674428 or longline 033-3211211 or at his residence at Block 1, Lot 28 Austery Subd. in Mandurriao, Iloilo City. Source:Lydia Pendon.
