Waking up this morning after a long but highly successful first day at ecobuild 2013, I thought I best write a little piece summing up the main highlights. Given the extraordinary number of amazing exhibits, speakers and visitors this may prove difficult.
I believe pictures tell the story better than words, so take a gander at the slideshow above. This should go some way to illustrating what our exhibit looks like, the level of interest our solar projects are receiving and the fun we all had during the first day of this super event.
Top of the list of highlights is of course our Darkspace. It has proved to be a fantastic place to showcase the solar lights we sell in Africa and also left visitors with plenty of questions which our team have been merrily answering. The space has been a real hit with many inquisitive visitors wanting to experience their first solar awakening. Unfortunately we won't be putting any pictures up just yet, so if this has provoked your curiosity, you'll just have to pop down and pay us a visit.
Meanwhile our favourite artist, Daniel Speight, has been busy building up his illustration wall to highlight quotes from visitors, images of solar lights in action and even a Right to Light wall - a place where people can pledge their support with a single orange circle!
With hundreds of people passing through and signing up to work with us in the future, all is boding well for today. Bring on day two!
