Spain: 15,041 visited Expobiomasa

15,041 professionals from 32 nations visited Expobiomasa 2015

The international, professional Fair specialised in biomass technology held in Valladolid each year closed its 10th event on 24th of September with a final headcount of 15,041 visitors. This is a smaller figure than last year’s and not the target set by the Spanish Biomass Energy Association (AVEBIOM), the event organisers, when they initially announced the event. The fair 2015 was held a month earlier than normally which might be a cause.

Expobiomasa has become consolidated as the professional meeting with an outstanding position in the ranking of the 5 best sector fairs worldwide, which is how it has been classified on more than one occasion by AEBIOM (European Biomass Association).

Portugal: the most represented country

70% of the professionals arriving at Expobiomasa came from outside the Castile and Leon region. Of the people from the region itself, 13.8% came from Valladolid. Because the fair is highly oriented towards essionals, participation of visitors from Castile and Leon decreased compared to last year, whereas the number of professionals from the sector coming from other Spanish regions was up 15% on the previous year. In 2015, Expobiomasa registered professionals from 32 nations, 5% of them from Portugal, one of the invited countries at the event.
