Web Sessions

We want to continue and promote the professional exchange between experts beyond the trade fair itself. Let's discuss current topics and share ideas. The web sessions within the E-world Community gather the energy industry digitally and provide you with valuable food for thought. Following inspiring presentations, you have the opportunity to exchange ideas and network in digital 1:1 conversation with other participants. Participation is free of charge for members of the community.


The E-world Congress takes place every year parallel to the trade fair. At the Congress, experts from politics, business and science discuss current topics of the energy industry. The conferences, seminars and workshops take place in the Congress Centers South and West of Messe Essen in the immediate vicinity of the fair.

Have a look at the program of the Congress 2020 in the compact overview.

Expert Forums

On all three days of the fair, the open expert forums offer a varied program with lectures and discussion rounds. They are a contact point and exchange platform for interested parties and experts, for new ideas and successful concepts, for current trends and future technologies. The three forums are located directly in the exhibition halls and are freely accessible to all visitors to E-world.

Day of Consulates

Each year E-world invites international representatives to join the Day of Consulates: ambassadors, consuls general, consuls, economic attachés and employees of business development agencies and chambers of commerce exchange information on current topics in the energy industry.

Participants of the Day of Consulates can expect an exciting program. In 2020, representatives of the SINTEG smart energy showcases provided information about the current state of the energy transition. Two guided tours focusing on smart cities and hydrogen technologies gave further insights and offered space for discussions and exchange.

If you are interested in attending the Day of Consulates, having a dialogue with the international participants at our trade fair and making important contacts - please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
