It was recently announced that due to the continual spread of COVID-19 in Europe, PCIM Europe 2020 would be unable to take place as planned.

Organisers have now announced that this year’s power exhibition and conference will instead offer the power electronics community a digital alternative; with digital formats currently being developed with which exhibitors and speakers can exchange views on product innovations and the latest research topics with visitors and participants virtually. This will also include an online conference with live and on-demand solutions for interactive presentations.

Although further details are yet to be confirmed, we can assume PCIM will implement a similar format to the PowerUP Virtual expo.

Taking place from 7th-8th July 2020, this digital alternative seems like the next best step to still allow exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to exchange knowledge and insight; and we look forward to hearing feedback on what visitors and exhibitors thought of this approach.
