elec expo, EneR Event and Tronica Expo with France as Guest of Honour in 2012
Moroccos leading energy exhibition

Morocco records a double-digit growth with imports and exports of electro-technology and is attracting important investments in the renewable energy sector. These are decisive factors to develop from an energy importing to an energy exporting country. As Morocco“s most important trading partner and investor, France will be Guest of Honour in 2012. The 7th elec expo, the 2nd EneR Event and the 1st Tronica Expo are scheduled to take place at the Casablanca International Fairgrounds – OFEC from 17 to 20 October 2012. This regional hub is organised by FENELEC, the Moroccan Federation of Electricity, Electronics and Renewable Energies, in close cooperation with the German trade fair specialists fairtrade and their Moroccan partners Forum 7.
The figures of ZVEI – the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers“ Association on electro-technology imports and exports reflect the rising exchange especially in this sector. Moroccan producers have increased their exports of electro-technology by 29.7% in 2010, to 1.906 billion Euros, compared with 1.470 billion Euros in 2009. In the same period, Moroccan imports rose by 16.1% to 2.931 billion Euros, after 2.524 billion Euros in 2009. France, China, Spain, Germany and Italy are the major supplier countries.
According to the Ernst & Young study „Renewable energy country attractiveness indices“ of February 2012, Morocco attracts important investments in the renewable energy sector, especially for solar and for wind. On a global scale Morocco is ranked No. 9 together with France in solar, and No. 31 in wind. „Morocco being the only country linked to the European network has the opportunity to develop from an energy importing to an energy exporting country.“
According to the Moroccan Agency of Investment and Development (AMDI), Morocco becomes ever more important as a hub for integrated subcontractors outsourcing major parts of their operations to the Kingdom. This is especially true for subcontractors responsible for the design, industrialisation and the purchase of raw materials and components. Against this backdrop Tronica Expo 2012, the International Trade Fair for Electronic Components, Systems and Applications will be held for the first time in conjunction with elec expo and EneR Event, which have been rewarded with the UFI Approved Event status in February 2012.
France will be the Guest of Honor in 2012. This has been agreed between UBIFRANCE – the French Agency for International Development and the organisers. „Without any doubt this event helps to further develop the economic and commercial ties between our two countries“ underlines Henri Baissas, Directeur Général Adjoint and Directeur des Opérations at UBIFRANCE. „UBIFRANCE will organise the participation of France as the official Guest of Honor in cooperation with CFCIM – the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Morocco. I like to thank the organisers for the opportunity of highlighting the French know-how as the official Guest of Honor in 2012.“
In 2011, 5,246 registered trade visitors from 52 countries and 213 exhibitors (+88%) from 18 countries discussed business. FENELEC“s president Mr Youssef Tagmouti is quite confident to continue the success story of Morocco“s and Africa“s major energy, electrical engineering and electronics event in 2012.
