Events like this are a shot in the arm for tourism, but they also stimulate progress in the city, nation and region where they are held, placing a global spotlight on our region’s hydrogen community, highlighting the incredible ideas and skills found here, and adding a new perspective to a predominantly northern hemisphere discussion.”
