HYVOLUTION JUST KEEPS ON GROWING!
AN UNPRECEDENTED BUZZ AT EUROPE’S LEADING HYDROGEN EVENT
For the whole of the hydrogen sector, this was absolutely the place to be over the last couple of days!
The 2023 edition of the expert event for hydrogen took place on 1st and 2nd February at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles and asserted itself as the go-to European nexus of political and economic discussion centred on hydrogen solutions, a key contributor to decarbonization.
Now a compelling demonstration of public commitment as well as a business accelerator for the whole sector, Hyvolution is irreversibly engaged in this new era.
Under the distinguished patronage of the President of the French Republic, Mr Emmanuel Macron, Hyvolution broke all records this year by attracting 7,867 professional visitors (73% up on the 2022 edition) and 400 exhibitors and brands including all the sector's big names.
The trade show's international dimension, already a fact, grew even more at this latest edition, with visitors from 70 countries against 30 last year and a threefold increase in international visitors, along with 88 exhibitors from abroad!The 2023 edition also saw many non-European countries involved, most notably the United States, who made it into the top 10 countries!
With visits from Roland Lescure, Minister with special responsibility for Industry – Bruno Bonnell, General Secretary for France Investment 2030, Rosalinde Van der Vlies – Director of “Clean Planet” - European Commission, – and Bart Biebuyck – Executive Director of Clean Hydrogen Partnership, Hyvolution is fast becoming the venue where political decisions are made and European policies presented.
With 13 high profile CAC 40 corporations, with 15 regions including 11 from France, with 14 foreign stands and delegations, the event offered a unique European hub for business, encounters, and high level conferences. These two days that brought the worldwide hydrogen community together also saw many important announcements and new agreements, fully living up to stakeholders' expectations and keeping every promise.
After such a rich and fruitful edition, which as well as an exhibition hosted an international Summit, Hyvolution, is now indisputably the European gathering that gets the unanimous vote of both the economic and political spheres.
