The number of visitors exceeded our wildest expectations. According to the preliminary results we were able to welcome around 72,000 visitors – an increase of around 23 percent of the previous year. Intersolar Europe thus sends a strong signal from Munich to the solar industry around the world.” ??

Exhibitior numbers have also increased by 33 percent from last year. The organizers said this growth was also seen in an expansion of the exhibition area: the exhibiting companies were said to have occupied 29 percent more exhibition space than in 2009.??

Fifty-three percent of the exhibitors came from outside Germany. Visitors from 150 different countries traveled to Munich for the exhibition.”
