In a digital form, PCIM Europe was once again the meeting place for power electronics experts in the industry. During the two-day online event, 4,506 suppliers and users took advantage of the opportunity to expand their specialist knowledge and broaden their own professional network. A total of 74 companies took part in the “PCIM Europe digital days” as exhibitors and showcased their company profiles, product innovations or job offers. Among them were industry giants such as Siemens, Infineon, Rohm Semiconductor, Mitsubishi Electric, Varta and Wolfspeed.
The agenda of the comprehensive lecture program of the conference and virtual exhibition also included more than 200 oral and poster presentations, keynotes, expert lectures, forums and discussion with live chats. The conference proceedings contain all contributions of the PCIM Europe Conference 2020 and can be ordered online.
The professional offering was rounded off by a matchmaking session, a business speed dating event and an attractive supporting program including an early bird café as well as an after-work hour session with a DJ. In total, the participants exchanged information in over 25,700 started chats.
"We are very pleased with the success of our “PCIM digital days”. However, the personal encounter remains important and cannot be replaced digitally. All the more reason for us to look forward to PCIM Europe next year in Nuremberg, however we are convinced that digital formats will continue to be a useful addition in the future," commented Petra Haarburger, Managing Director of Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, with an outlook for the future.
