The Trade Fair for Electricity and Information Networks held in Tampere 25–26 January 2017 is a place for networking, which brings together the entire field behind one, shared mission: The electricity market act that came into force in 2013 as well as the rapid development of network business bring continuous reforms, changes and, in particular, investments in the field. Over 80% of the exhibition space of this one of the most rapidly growing events of Tampere Trade Fairs has already been reserved, and a record-breaking number of Swedish exhibitors are coming to the fair. For the first time, a new Vuoden Verkostoteko – Network Act of the Year – award will be allocated during the fair.
“All of us working in this field have a common mission to ensure that the energy and information networks are functional and meet the requirements of the electricity market act by 2026. The storms that have raged in Finland during the recent years have further emphasised the role of underground cabling, which in part brings investments into the field. The contents of the Network trade fair have seen some changes, too. For example, street lighting will have significantly more visibility in the upcoming fair than before. However, the most important reason to come to the fair is the fact that within these walls, visitors can meet a staggering number of important buyers, workers, partners, colleagues and competitors. This is networking in all the meanings of the word”, says project manager Raimo Pylvänäinen from Tampere Trade Fairs.
Network Act of the Year award highlights exemplary operators of a growing field
Network Act of the Year is a new honorary award for network business, which will be awarded for the very first time during the opening ceremony of Network 2017 trade fair.
