ASME 2022 Turbo Expo Conference is coming to Rotterdam01/21/19
Rotterdam will be the host city for the ASME 2022 Turbo Expo Conference, an internationally famous congress focusing on turbines and energy. The Turbo Expo Congress will take place in the brand new Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre, currently under construction and set to open its doors in the 4th quarter of 2020.
The expansion of Rotterdam Ahoy offers Rotterdam enormous opportunities to bid on larger congresses. Gert-Jan van den Nieuwenhoff, General Manager Business to Business Events Rotterdam Ahoy: “We are happy and proud to accommodate the ASME 2022 event in Ahoy. The conference does not only fit the city’s profile in terms of content, but our venue also suits the needs of the conference and expo perfectly. ASME Turbo Expo 2022 will take place from the 13th to the 17th of June, and is expected to draw 3500 international delegates.
The bid to bring the congress to Rotterdam, and the Netherlands, was a result of a close collaboration of the Dutch Gas Turbine Association, TU Delft, Rotterdam Partners Convention Bureau and Rotterdam Ahoy. Pierra Colonna, professor Propulsion and Power at TU Delft: “The ASME Turbo Expo & Conference is the most important worldwide regarding research & development in power technologies and aero engines, both very important for the future.”
The theme of the conference matches Rotterdam’s ambitions with regard to energy transition. The Turbo Expo will attract international experts to research and share the newest developments in turbine technologies. “Rotterdam is working toward a sustainable, energy efficient future. A congress like the ASME Turbo Expo and Conference is a good match for our ambitions, and strengthens the international image of Rotterdam as a frontrunner toward a new, sustainable economy,” states Eveline van der Pluijm, Manager Convention Bureau & Tourism Board.
