TRADE FAIR NEWS PCIM Europe 2023 continues on the road to success
A wider audience – greater knowledge – even more networking: From 9 – 11 May 2023, the PCIM Europe once again gathered the experts of power electronics in Nuremberg, further pushed its meaning as an important exchange platform and thus once again confirmed its relevance for the industry.
The exhibition and conference demonstrated that power electronics is an essential topic for technological progress and, as a key technology, makes a major contribution to future-oriented trend topics. These include hot subjects such as electromobility and energy storage. In 2023, the PCIM Europe is again proven to be a relevant industry meeting place and networking platform, which is reflected in the positive feedback and results:
“Wolfspeed has been coming to the PCIM Europe for at least 13 years because it really is a huge working meeting and show. For us in the power division of Wolfspeed, it is probably the most important trade event of the year. And after the pandemic period, there is so much to discuss, swap and share in the community. It is great to be able to meet customers and experts in one place so we can move the design cycles forward. It’s good to be back and feel the vibrancy at the PCIM Europe!” summarizes Guy Moxey, Senior Director Power Marketing at Wolfspeed.
Sander van Lisdonk, Executive Vice President Sales EMEA and Americas at Heraeus Nederland B.V. explains further: “For us, the PCIM Europe is THE platform to position Heraeus Electronics as material solutions partner of choice in the electronics industry. The event offers a perfect mix of exhibition, conference, and networking. While exhibiting our broad product portfolio for power electronics, the conference is a great platform to present innovative technologies and to share the latest results of our investigations. One of the most important aspects for us is networking. The PCIM Europe is very special for us compared to other events because it attracts engineers as well as Senior Level Management. This allows us to hold strategic meetings with key customers and partners. From our point of view, the PCIM Europe is the most important trade fair globally in the field of power electronics.”
Top-class conference as a source of impetus
The parallel conference once again showed the close connection between industry and science within the PCIM Europe. In 377 top-class presentations on current research and development topics, 895 participants from 36 countries expanded their expertise. This year, the three Special Sessions again focused on particularly relevant industry topics, such as the session on "Power Electronics for E-Mobility". The three keynotes at the beginning of each conference day were also very well attended.
At the exhibition, these application areas were focused within the new E-Mobility & Energy Storage Zone and Stage, enabling interested parties to exchange information and ideas with each other. Presentations highlighted current trends and challenges in the value chain in this segment and these were discussed afterwards in more detail in the networking area.
Success across the board
The leading international exhibition and conference for power electronics and its applications recorded 507 main and co-exhibitors, 57 % of them from abroad, and a gross exhibition area with a record value of 30,000m². Over 16,500 trade visitors learned about the latest products as well as research and development topics along the entire value chain - from components to intelligent systems - at the exhibitors' stands as well as in presentations on the three stages.
PCIM Europe digital: Content available until 30 June 2023
