There were Big Counts taking place all over the UK last week after the polls closed for voting in the general election.
And as well as the political results in Glasgow, there was another ‘Big Count’ taking place in the city after All Energy closed its doors after staging its annual renewable energy conference and exhibition at the Scottish exhibition centre – for first the time.
For the previous 14 years, All Energy – the UK’s largest renewable energy event – had been held in Aberdeen.
But the ‘post-election’ count at Glasgow showed that this year a total of 8,250 people visited the event. This compares to a total of 6,875 visitors who attended last year’s event in Aberdeen.
Jonathan Heastie, All Energy Event Director, commented: “It goes without saying that Reed Exhibitions, organisers of the annual show, are delighted by these figures – and by the warm welcome they have had from Glasgow.
“Packed aisles in the extraordinarily busy exhibition with its 450+ exhibiting companies from 20 countries, combined with standing room only in the equally-packed 11 conference and seminar rooms (where more than 440 speakers took part in 120 hours of discussion, debate and knowledge sharing) and a tremendous turnout for the Giant Networking Evening at the Glasgow Science Centre made it a splendid two days,”
“We look forward to being back in Glasgow in May 2016.”
