POWER-GEN 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 POWER-GEN India & Central Asia conference and exhibition, POWER-GEN Asia went alone a short while later, taking place in various countries around Asia, including China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore. In 2009, POWER-GEN 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 POWER-GEN 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, POWER-GEN Asia will take place in Indonesia in 2018, at our new venue, ICE, in BSD City, Jakarta, alongside MKI's 73rd Indonesia National Electricity Day. We hope you can join us for this premier power industry event.
For more than a quarter of a century, POWER-GEN Asia has served as a leading forum where the electric power industry can meet, share and discuss solutions for advancing Asia and particularly the ASEAN’s electricity future. Attracting over 8,500+ attendees from more than 75 countries, POWER-GEN Asia covers all forms of power generation, from conventional to renewable energy and other low-carbon options.
Hari Listrik Nasional or National Electricity Day, organized by MKI on behalf of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, and PT. PLN Persero, the state-owned utility, is recognized as the foremost event for key stakeholders in Indonesia’s power sector, where discussions on how best to meet the challenges facing the industry and develop opportunities are held. National Electricity Day also has a central role in supporting the Government’s important electricity-related objectives.
