SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, August 2nd, 2018 — The Seoul Metropolitan Government invites solar energy-related companies to participate in the 2018 Seoul Solar Expo that will be held at Seoul Plaza, an open-air public square in front of Seoul City Hall for three days from August 23.
The Seoul Solar Expo celebrates its fourth anniversary this year. Through the annual Seoul Solar Expo, the city government is to promote the full-scale implementation of the “2022 Solar City Seoul” project, and to attract the citizens’ attention to the solar energy that is emerging as one of the future growth engines of Seoul. Especially, it is a highly satisfied occasion for participating companies since it provides opportunities to publicize their new technologies and products directly to the citizens.
This year’s Expo is expected to be paid special attentions from the solar energy industry because an international solar power conference will concurrently take place and a diversity of industry support programs will be held at the same time.
In addition, the Seoul Business Agency, a small and medium-sized business support organization funded by the city government, will have a session to introduce solar energy-powered products made by startups to the citizens and experts, and access and award the best ones. Also it will provide a “cross coaching” program, through which participants are allowed to visit the other participants’ promotional booths to explain their products and to provide mentoring services with practical help among them.
During the Expo, the Seoul Energy Corporation will hold the 2018 Seoul International Solar Energy Conference with distinguished guests at home and abroad participating. They will discuss the policies and future of the urban solar energy industry.
In an effort to increase the citizens’ understanding and interests in solar power, a solar energy design competition and various hands-on programs will be also held at the Expo.
There will be no participation fee for the Expo. Companies interested in the participation may visit the Seoul Solar Expo’s official website at www.seoulsolarexpo.org for details. The deadline for the participation application is August 10.
