PCIM Europe 2019, the leading international event for power electronics, has delivered some impressive results; welcoming a total of 12,182 visitors and 515 exhibitors over the 3-day event.

It’s clear to see that PCIM Europe has gained traction over the years, with both visitors and exhibitors steadily increasing. (In 2016, the event received a total of 10,053 visitors, and last year the event closed with a record result of 11,000 visitors.)

The conference, which is an important part of the show, featured brand new topics that were presented to the public for the first time, in as many as 333 lectures and poster presentations, with contributors from academia and the industry.

This year, the exhibition also saw an increase in international exhibitors and visitors; as 56% of attendees were revealed to have travelled from abroad. Japan was the strongest-represented country with 15%, and France and the USA were close behind, ranked two and three at 13% and 10% respectively.

With 93% of visitors in favour of recommending PCIM Europe to others, and 75% of them planning to attend the exhibition next year, we look forward to seeing the direction PCIM Europe will take, as trade shows in Germany at least, continue to be an important part of the electronics industry’s marketing mix.
