World's largest hydroelectric power event earns industry honors

HydroVision International -- the world's largest event dedicated to the hydroelectric power industry -- has again been recognized by Trade Show Executive as one of the fastest-growing tradeshows in the United States.

This marks the second consecutive year that HydroVision International has been honored as a recipient of Trade Show Executive's "Fastest 50" award, which is determined based on the event's net square feet of exhibit space sold and the number of participating exhibitors.

"We appreciate Trade Show Executive's continued recognition of this important event," said Marla Barnes, publisher of PennWell Corporation's Hydro Group. "This is an exciting time for the hydroelectric industry -- both in the United States and abroad -- and the event's continued success reflects both the strength of the industry and the companies that serve it."

HydroVision International 2012, held in Louisville, Ky., drew over 3,000 attendees from more than 40 countries and featured 320 exhibitors.

This year's conference and exhibition takes place in Denver, Colo., and looks to be even better this year, Barnes said.

"Whether you're new to the industry or a seasoned professional, HydroVision International 2013 offers something for everyone involved in or with the hydro industry," Barnes said. “In addition to the extensive conference program, the event features a huge exhibition with more than 300 companies displaying the best products and services offered in the industry.”

HydroVision International 2013 takes place July 23-26, 2013, in the Colorado Convention Center. For more information, visit
