Alexandria, VA, July 25, 2017 – Solar Power International (SPI) has been named one of Trade Show Executive’s 100 largest trade shows for the eighth year in a row. The 2016 show was the only solar or storage trade show to make the list. SPI will be honored by Trade Show Executive at the Gold 100 Awards & Summit on September 27-29 at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, CA.

SPI remains at the top and continues to be North America’s largest solar show. In 2016 the show had over 18,000 industry professionals and over 600 manufacturers, service providers and vendors from across the globe. As SPI continues to grow, the 2017 show is expected to be even larger.

SPI is a four day conference packed with education sessions, networking events and a wide range of exhibitions. The education sessions are led by industry leaders who share their expertise and ideas on prominent topics in the industry. The show also offers an array of relaxed networking events to form new connections with industry professionals around the world and take your existing business ventures to new lengths. As solar continues to evolve, SPI will keep you up to date on emerging technologies and policy changes.
All proceeds from SPI support expansion of the solar energy industry through SEIA and SEPA’s year-round research and education activities, and SEIA’s extensive advocacy efforts.
