ADBA 2016 - A Review
Last week we exhibited a comprehensive range of flow control products at the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas show at the Birmingham NEC.. This is our review:
The Exhibition was organised and run by the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA) who were established in September 2009 and aim to facilitate growth in the industry, help the UK to meet its renewable energy targets and pave the way for a carbon-free future.
The exhibition brought together some of the leading technology and product suppliers in the industry, with over 300 exhibitors attending. There was an amazing opportunity to discover the latest in technological advances and take advantage of advice on best practices for both users and suppliers in the industry.
The exhibition was also an opportunity to learn from some of the best minds in the AD and Biogas industry with 24 free to attend seminar sessions running in two conference centres over the two days of the show. A variety of subjects were up for discussion from global market insights, into the role of AD in energy systems kicked off by Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive, ADBA to the effects of Brexit on the industry.
There were also extremely helpful advice clinics where you could learn and gain insights into how best to approach any issue across the AD process, whether it be learning how to deal with ATEX certification to general site health and safety.
As a supplier to the industry exhibiting gave us direct access to potential and existing business partners. We showcased a variety of our key products including Actuated Ball Valves, Knife Gate Valves and both Quarter and Multi-turn Electric Actuators.
We were joined on day one by the Regional Business Development Manager from Bernard Controls who helped us with technical enquiries and provided some great hands on demonstrations of the Bernard Controls EZ logic actuator. There was also a great deal of interest in our new Valpes Bluetooth integrated electric actuator with its programmable timer function with operations being carried out remotely from 15 meters away from the stand!
We found the show a very worthwhile event and appreciated all the interest from both existing and new potential customers and we would like to thank all those that stopped for a chat over the two days.
We would love to hear from you if you attended the show and have any thoughts on the future of the industry?
