We were delighted to hear about the success of PCIM Digital Days, which recently took place as a replacement for PCIM Europe 2020.

The two-day online event saw over 4,506 suppliers and users participate on the online platform, with a total of 74 exhibitors, who were able to showcase their company profiles and product innovations while interacting with users.

The event featured a comprehensive lecture programme, and participants were invited to interact via matchmaking sessions, a business speed dating event, as well as via an after-work hour session with 25,700 conversations taking place in total.

“We are very pleased with the success of our “PCIM digital days”, commented Petra Haarburger, Managing Director of Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH. “However, the personal encounter remains important and cannot be replaced digitally, which is why we 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”.

Here at Napier, we think it’s great that ‘PCIM Digital Days’ went ahead for 2020. Although interaction can not be replicated to the level you can achieve at a face-to-face trade show, ‘PCIM Digital Days’ offered the best alternative and was able to provide a platform that the power electronics industry could use to get updates and network with fellow professionals during the current pandemic.

PCIM Europe has confirmed that the 2021 event will be taking place as a real-life event from 4th-6th May 2021 in Nuremberg.
