By signing the Agreement on Cooperation between the Government of the Sarajevo Canton and the orgnizer, Tuzlanski sajam d.o.o., the seventh International Fair ENERGA, was held in June 2017 for the first time in the Skenderija Center in Sarajevo.
As announced and planned, the new management of the Skenderija Center, with good cooperation and coordination with the Sarajevo Canton Ministry of Economy, re-positioned Sarajevo on the map of important fair cities and destinations, and last year’s arrival of the International Fair ENERGA was a successful continuation of such a policy and commitment.
The International Fair ENERGA was held under the slogan “Thinking the Future”. Its program and organizational concept expresses the commitment to a modern, sustainable and efficient future concerning energy, mining, environment protection and related industry. Within the fair and conference activities, on an area over 1000 square meters, numerous exhibitors, domestic and foreign companies in the field of electricity, gas and oil, coal, solar, wind, biomass and energy efficiency were presented, and more than 150 participants took part in the conference, which, during the three days of the fair, dealt with around 20 current topics in the field of energy, through sessions and panels, with a special emphasis on strategic energy priorities and investment potentials in Bosnia and Herzegovina – turning the Skenderija Center into a modern fairground pavilion.
Through collective performances, eight companies were presented at the exhibition area of the Embassy of Great Britain in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as 12 companies from the Czech Republic who had a remarkable performance at the previous editions of ENERGA, as well as a significant number of exhibitors who traditionally come from Poland and Germany.
The International Fair recorded more than 3,500 visitors in the past year and coverage by 21 media organizations from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
