POWERGEN Asia 2017 (as part of Asia Power Week and alongside Renewable Energy World Asia) commemorated 25 years of as the premier power industry event for the Asia continent. Initially beginning in 1992 as a collaborative event with our POWERGEN India & Central Asia conference and exhibition, POWERGEN Asia went alone a short while later, taking place in various countries around Asia, including China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore.
In 2009, POWERGEN Asia was joined by Renewable Energy World Asia as a co-located event, which has continued to this day. In 2014 the ASEAN Power Week brand was launched which comprised these two events, plus the new addition of the POWERGEN Asia Financial Forum.
2016 saw the umbrella brand change to Asia Power Week as for the first time in over a decade, the events took place outside of the ASEAN region, and also for the first time in South Korea, at KINTEX, Gyeonggi-do. For the 2nd year in succession event attendance records were broken, with over 8,300 delegates and visitors joining us for the 3 co-located events.
The event attendance record was then further broken in 2017 where we once again returned to Thailand, for the 9th staging in Bangkok. For the first time, POWERGEN Asia took place in Indonesia in 2018, at ICE, in BSD City, Jakarta, alongside MKI's 73rd Indonesia National Electricity Day, which hosted record-breaking numbers of 9,200+ attendees.
In 2019, POWERGEN Asia will be joined by Asian Utility Week, DISTRIBUTECH Asia and SolarVision, offering a full end-to-end power and energy solutions event, looking to attract more than 11,000 attendees and 350+ exhibitors at MITEC, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 3-5 September 2019.
We hope you can join us for this one-of-a-kind full value chain event.
