The SEAI Energy Show has a variety of exciting features, including expert talks at the energy theatre, live best practice demonstrations and a networking app.

Energy theatre talks

Located in the centre of the space, SEAI's Energy Theatre are open drop-in sessions that tackle all of the crucial topics of concern to professionals in the energy sector. There is no need to book or register for these sessions, you can drop by at any stage!

Seminars

Every year we run a number of side seminars that you can register for separately. In 2019, we had four key seminars, and were very excited to have CPD Accreditation from RIAI and Engineers Ireland for these sessions. A new schedule of CPD accredited seminars for the 2020 show will be announced soon.

Live best practice demonstrations

Industry experts demonstrate the latest in Energy Technologies

Networking app

Our hugely successful new networking app is available for all attendees and exhibitors. Visitors are able to message and arrange short meetings with exhibitors and other attendees. They are also be able to also book one of our meeting pods, and create a full schedule of events via the app, along with having an interactive map to locate exhibitors.

Meeting pods

Our meeting pods facilitate a private meeting space for attendees and exhibitors to do business.

Electric Vehicle Test Drives

There's a packed schedule of Electric Vehicles to test drive. Our top tip for getting to test drive your dream car is to register early as these spaces book up fast, and if you're registered early, you'll be the first to know when the cars are open for bookings!

 

Product of the Show Awards

The SEAI Energy Show Product of the Show Awards have championed innovative product developments, especially those incorporating smart energy solutions, for many years. Considerable investment in R&D, coupled with rapidly-changing technology, have seen a wave of pioneering products and systems featured at the Show where many manufacturers now choose to introduce their latest innovations. Apart from the prestige of winning such a highly-regarded award, there are very tangible commercial benefits to successful companies that enter this competition.

The Awards are dynamic and ever-changing, reflecting industry developments, the growing exhibitor base, and the many innovative products and technologies coming to the market. Entries to the five categories are subjected to rigorous assessment by a panel of highly-qualified and experienced professionals drawn from building engineering, architecture, facilities management and contracting.
