  • Hannover Messe Recap

Power Systems Integration Program Director Marc Mueller-Stoffels returned from Germany last week where he had attended the Hannover Messe.  The event, hailed as the world’s leading industrial technology trade fair, brought in over 190,000 visitors to see vendors from all over the world showcasing their applicable technologies, energy solutions, and many other industry related items.

At the Messe ACEP’s booth was honored by a visit from both Deputy Secretary of Energy, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, and Deputy Under Secretary for International Trade, Kenneth Hyatt.

ACEP would like to offer a special thank you to the Alaska Small Business Development Center (AKSBDC) for sponsoring our participation in the Hannover Messe, and AKSBDC Director Isaac Vanderburg for putting on the ACEP hat for a week at our booth.  We value AKSBDC’s support and look forward to future collaborative opportunities.

Many thanks also go to the U.S. Commercial Service and their dedicated staff, who ensured that all 450 US entities with a booth at the Hannover Messe could maximize on this opportunity.
