The 26th International trade fair for electronic components, systems and applications – Electronica – will soon be opening its doors to welcome the electronics industry once again in Munich. This is a unique industry event presenting the state of the art in innovative electronics − a diverse range of components, pioneering hardware and software solutions and complete systems and applications, making it a must for anyone in the industry.
Why Visit Electronica?
In 2012, Electronica was visited by over 73,000 from 78 countries, with 2,669 exhibitors showing their products and services, and sharing their expertise.
This year, there will be a first-class programme, consisting of three international conferences, five forums, a CEO roundtable and over 200 lectures. Events will focuse on topics with dynamic innovative drive such as electromobility, energy efficiency and sustainability.
Electronica is seen as the decision-makers’ trade fair, as some 89% of all visitors are decision makers, and 47% hold management positions. The fair received a rating of good to excellent for the scope and completeness of its exhibits (97% of visitors), for the presence of market leaders (95%) and for its character as a leading trade fair (95%).
Top-Class Program For 50th Anniversary
Electronica is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. This year’s focus will be on automotive, embedded systems, medical electronics and lighting, as well as the overarching themes of security and energy efficiency. The program of conferences and forums will explore these exhibition topics in greater depth. According to analysis by the German Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers’ Industry Association (ZVEI, www.zvei.org), the global market for electrical and electronic products grew by 3% last year to around 3.7 trillion euros, a growth driven mainly by the Asian and American markets. However, this has also benefited the German electrical industry, which in the first quarter of 2014 saw new orders rise by 3% over the previous year.
Electronica Automotive Conference
The Electronica automotive conference, supported by ZVEI, will take place on November 10 at the ICM – Internationales Congress Center München. The conference will investigate the major technology trends and strategies of the international automotive industry. Among the conference speakers are representatives of Audi, BMW, Daimler, Freescale, Infineon, Intel, Osram, Renesas and Visteon. This year, the focus is on lighting, sensor fusion and connectivity.
Embedded Platforms Conference
The embedded platforms conference will be looking for the second time at new technologies, concrete solution approaches and services for the development of embedded systems. The conference will take place on November 12 and 13, in parallel with Electronica, at the Press Centre East of the Messe München.
At the Wireless Congress ‘Systems & Application’ at the ICM (Internationales Congress Center Munich) on November 12 and 13, industry experts will discuss the technical aspects of current and future wireless technologies, primarily for industrial use.
