The goal - to provide utilities and private companies with the tools to face today's challenges in the Brazilian electricity industry.


Brazil's Premier Source For Power Generation Information And Technology
The launch of POWER-GEN Brasil completes the global network of POWER-GEN events, joining POWER-GEN International, POWER-GEN Europe, POWER-GEN Middle East, POWER-GEN Asia, POWER-GEN Africa, POWER-GEN India & Central Asia and Russia Power. Collectively attracting nearly 70,000 power professionals around the world, the POWER-GEN brand is synonymous with superior content, exhibitions showcasing the leaders in the power industry and unsurpassed networking opportunities. Expanding the POWER-GEN brand to Brazil came in direct response to market demand for providing the Latin American sector with a POWER-GEN event covering this important and rapidly growing region of the world. Attendees and exhibitors of POWER-GEN Brasil can expect the highest level of quality in conference programming and exhibition opportunities, further enhanced by the co‑location with HydroVision Brasil and DistribuTECH Brasil. 2014 will host POWER-GEN Brasil's 2nd event.

HydroVision Brasil

The Preeminent Conference And Exhibition For All Things Hydropower In Brazil
As a key component of the energy industry, hydropower is currently contributing around one-sixth of all global electricity, but is expected to play an even larger role in the future of global energy supply as the inevitable shift to renewable energy occurs. With the critical need of increasing global energy supply to meet demand - and the necessity to lower emissions of carbon dioxide - the opportunities for the hydropower sector have never been so great. Entering its 4th year in 2014, HydroVision Brasil is Brazil’s only event dedicated 100% to the hydropower industry. The educational program is designed specifically for individuals working within the utility and private power sectors, as well as engineering and commercial personnel from the equipment manufacturing and consulting fields. The event features content directly relevant to the day-to-day operations of the hydroelectric industry, focusing on solutions and practical approaches to timely issues and challenges.
