SEOUL, South Korea, January 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Across three days from February 16-18, 2011, the world's leading solar exhibition and conference EXPO Solar/PV Korea 2011 (http://www.exposolar.org) will be held at KINTEX in Ilsan, Gyeonggi, Korea. EXPO Solar 2011 is this year's first exhibition for the global solar market and will present an important preview of what's to come over the next year. One of the noticeable trends expected in the 2011 global solar market is shift of demand for solar energy from major markets like Europe to Asia and the U.S. This year, explosive growth will occur in Asia with Korea taking a leading role.
In Korea, where Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) will be enforced from 2012, companies are making massive investment in expanding their solar business, pushing the stock price of Korean solar companies higher and higher every day. EXPO Solar/PV Korea 2011 is the first important solar event in Korea this year and will mark the beginning of the second phase of growth for the Korean solar market which is witnessing dramatic expansion ahead of 2012 RPS enforcement.
Since the first show was hosted in 2009, EXPO Solar/PV Korea has been showing remarkable growth every year and is now recognized as one of the most important international solar exhibitions in Asia. The 2011 event will provide the much-needed platform for PV companies in Korea and overseas to promote their brands and technologies.
At EXPO Solar/PV Korea 2011, more than 300 companies from 30 different countries will showcase their technology breakthroughs at about 1,000 booths. Local exhibitors include market-leading names such as Hyundai Heavy Industries, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics and key players such as SKC, Daeyeong Metal, SFA, Hanmi Semiconductor, TES and Wooil Hightech.
