BHA Annual Conference 2016

Show off at the Technical Exhibition!


Maintaining a presence at exhibitions demonstrates reliability and strength of position in the competitive hydropower sector and participating in our technical exhibition provides the opportunity to showcase your capabilities and expertise face-to-face with your audience in a relaxed yet focused environment. 

Our technical exhibition will run in parallel with the full conference programme. Spaces are available in the networking and exhibition area adjacent to the main conference hall, where all refreshments and lunches will be served. 

New two-tier exhibition packages!
This year we are offering a two -tier exhibition package for those attending both days of the event; introducing a low-cost single banner space option along with the usual high-profile full exhibition space option. Full details are below.
