GWO is hosting the first ever Safety, Skills and Training Zone at the Wind Europe Conference & Exhibition on April 2nd & 3rd in Bilbao
A brand-new 200m2 exhibition area dedicated to safety, learning and participation will be created at the Wind Europe Conference & Exhibition, helping delegates answer the question, ‘What does good training look like?'
Featuring an exciting mix of live training demonstrations, debates with industry leadership and activities for delegates to try out themselves, the Safety Training & Skills Zone is designed to help visitors to the exhibition think differently about the way we learn and keep our skills refreshed, so everyone can work safely in a wind turbine environment.
A key benefit for GWO stakeholders will be the inclusion of a comprehensive update from our Secretariat team and committee leadership including presentations from GWO Chairman Eloy Jauregui, Training Committee Chair John Barrie and Audit & Compliance Committee chair Sabas Herranz.
The Safety, Skills & Training Zone in association with GWO is hosted by Wind Europe. The zone will be in hall 3 of the main exhibition space.
GWO is not responsible for registrations. The prices below provide entry to the exhibition halls only.
