BIXPO, a global exposition on power technology launched by the Korea Electric Power Corporation (Kepco) in 2015, will be held for the fourth time from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 at the Gwangju Kimdaejung Convention Center and Holiday Inn Hotel.

While BIXPO 2017 presented its vision for the fourth industrial revolution, BIXPO 2018 will directly demonstrate the development of the technology of the fourth industrial revolution. It will also present a lot of new content related to digital technology. Energy transition and digital technology are megatrends in the energy field all over the world, and they are also themes of BIXPO 2018.

BIXPO has become a leading exposition in the energy field. This year, it plans to become the world’s best energy fair by strengthening its expertise through explorative content and conferences.

The new technology exhibition has integrated the exhibition themes to meet the theme of “Energy Transition & Digital Transformation.” The Energy Transition exhibition will specialize in the transitioning to energy such as solar power, wind power and geothermal energy and new technologies such as renewable energy. The Digital Transformation exhibition deals with big data, Internet of Things, power network operation solutions and energy efficiency solutions. It looks at how changes in power technology will be possible.

There will also be a start-up exhibition that supports the commercialization of fourth industrial revolution technology and an Inno-Tech show that displays new generation technology such as next generation transmission technology and smart distribution technology.

The mutual growth exhibition will be a venue for global networking with 280 companies from around the world and 800 booths participating.

Through 48 international conferences to globalize BIXPO, the direction of the future electric power industry can be gauged. The Energy Leaders Summit, which upgraded the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Forum last year, will be attended by more than 100 CEOs, CTOs, research institutes, academics and experts from over 50 countries. Discussions about “Current and Future of Digital Conversion Technology in Power Industry” will be held.

The Smart City Leaders Summit, which was held for the first time last year, will also be held this year with more than 100 people from 20 cities and vice mayors, business and government officials from domestic and overseas cities such as San Francisco, London, France, Paris, Dubai and Singapore. The status of smart city promotion and success stories from major participating cities will be shared.

In addition, it has expanded its international conferences on global issues such as the Northeast Asia Super Grid, Energy Block Chain, High-voltage direct current and Smart City. It hopes to share a meaningful vision for the future power energy industry.

Special lecture on “Digital Transformation and the Future Energy Industry” will be delivered by David L. Rogers, professor of business administration at Columbia University in the United States. He is a world-renowned digital business and marketing expert and author of “The Digital Transformation Playbook.”

Last year, BIXPO 2017 signed 12 memorandums of understanding and export contracts of about 12.7 billion won ($11.26 million), and about 70,000 people visited. BIXPO 2018, which is the largest and most enhanced conference, is expected to outperform last year in all respects. The top experts in the field of power energy will be attending, and technology networking opportunities between the best global companies and domestic companies will be expanded, which will contribute to creating new business results. There is also great interest in Bitgaram Energy Valley by foreign new energy industrial companies.

In order to use BIXPO as an opportunity to promote the excellence of Korea’s new energy industry beyond regional development, it is important to develop more public interest and active participation in the electric energy industry. Through the successful energy transition and digital transformation that BIXPO 2018 is paying attention to, Korea’s power industry will be develop its competitiveness in the global power market.
