German Biogas Association and DLG cooperate as organizer of the world's largest biogas trade fair

+++ New concept for BIOGAS annual conference and trade fair from 2016 +++ Cooperation with DLG – German Agricultural Society+++ New name: BIOGAS Convention +++ DLG extends leading position of EnergyDecentral through cooperation with German Biogas Association

The German Biogas Association will be setting its main event, the BIOGAS Annual convention and trade fair under the new name of BIOGAS Convention – Conference & Exhibition, on a future-oriented foundation. In cooperation with the DLG – German Agricultural Society - the market expertise for the trade fair will be bundled from 2016 onwards. On Thursday, 11.06.2015, Horst Seide, President of the German Biogas Association and Carl-Albrecht Bartmer, President of the DLG signed an agreement according to which the world's largest BIOGAS trade fair will be jointly organized from 2016 onwards.

The start of the new concept takes place in February 2016 with a BIOGAS ConfEx - Conference in Nuremberg without a trade fair. In February the German Biogas Association will be offering an extensive conference program on the latest developments in research and technology, legal and safety-relevant issues. The supporting program in the evening in addition to the general meeting of the German Biogas Association will promote intensive personal exchanges and networking between the participants.

In autumn, between the 15th and the 18th November 2016 and all the following even years, the BIOGAS ConfEx with its major evening program will be organized  jointly by the German Biogas Association together with the DLG in Hanover parallel to the EnergyDecentral (15.-18.11.2016). Renamed as the BIOGAS ConfEx, the previous BIOGAS trade fair will become a fixed component of EnergyDecentral. This means that the world's largest trade fair platform for the biogas sector will be formed with the EnergyDecentral.

In the uneven years, the German Biogas Association will hold the BIOGAS ConfEx - Conference & Exhibition at the beginning of December in Nuremberg. As co-organizer, the DLG will take over organization of the BIOGAS ConfEx - Exhibition which means that the exhibitors will be guaranteed continuity and reliability irrespective of the year and venue. The biogas exhibitor segment, which was previously located at the Agritechnica, will be transferred to the BIOGAS ConfEx in Nuremberg by the DLG.

The German Biogas Association will be making a strategic step towards the future with this new conception and close cooperation with the DLG. It will therefore ensure a future-proof platform for the cultivation and expansion of business connections in the national and increasingly international contexts for the biogas sector.
