Thank You to All Participants, Speakers, Sponsors, Exhibitors & Supporters of the 2nd World Hydrogen Summit

The 2nd World Hydrogen Summit, held in partnership with the City of Rotterdam & Port of Rotterdam, took place virtually on 9-11 March 2021.

The Summit gathered international hydrogen leaders from across the value chain for 3 action-packed days of insight-sharing, relationship-building and deal-making, continuing the momentum and driving the industry forward.

The World Hydrogen Awards were celebrated as part of the Summit’s first day, recognising 6 winners in different categories for their contribution to the hydrogen industry.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next edition in March 2022 which will feature a world-class exhibition taking place at the World Trade Center in the heart of Rotterdam. Get in touch to discuss your participation!

In the meantime, you can join us on social media to continue the conversation – #WorldHydrogenSummit on Twitter and Linkedin –  and drive collaboration in policy, projects and strategies to bring forward a #HydrogenEconomy and achieve our #NetZero goals.
