In 2014, about 36 international companies and laboratories showcased their products and applications at the exhibition and demonstration area.

The EUROPEAN SOFC & SOE FORUM is known for its relaxed atmosphere, good food services and unique entertainment. Social gatherings like the "Swiss Surprise" or the "Dinner on the Lake" on board beautifully restored paddle wheel steamers create excellent opportunities for networking and to cultivate old and new friendships.

Your target clientele:
More than 500 international experts - engineers, developers, scientists, politicans, users, journalists, professors and students from all parts of the world benefit from the opportunity
- to maintain running and new partnerships with you,
- to exchange needs, experiences and visions about your products,
- to establish business contacts and set-up new projects or
- to find employment positions.

The exhibition is also a platform for regions and international technical projects to show and exchange experiences and to create new connections. In the past, the European Fuel Cell Forum events have also been a trading place for intellectual property, patents and licenses.
