With just over four weeks to go, the countdown has begun to the largest gathering of solar professionals the UK has ever seen. From October 26-28, the ICC Birmingham will open its doors to a representative of every sector in the solar industry.

Now in its second year, the conference offers an exclusive opportunity for new and established players in the fastest growing photovoltaic market in Europe. Last year’s two-day conference attracted over 460 delegates from a variety of sectors including project management, finance, installation companies, wholesalers, distributors and manufacturing companies.

This year, Solar Power UK 2011 will cover every link in the supply chain from installation projects to market trends and forecasts. The conference has already confirmed over 40 key industry speakers delivering cutting edge speeches and presentations, including:
