PCIM Europe cracks 500 exhibitor mark for the first time

May 17, 2018

A new milestone in the history of the Event: Over 500 companies have registered for this year’s international leading exhibition and conference for power electronics and its applications – an all-time record. With 52% of the exhibitors based abroad, as many as 27 nations will be represented.

40 years of PCIM Europe: A success story

Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the event looks back at a successful development: “40 years ago, the PCIM Europe started off with less than 80 conference participants and under 40 (mostly table top) exhibitors”, reminisces Professor Leo Lorenz, General Conference Director of the PCIM Europe and pioneering conference participant. “Throughout the past four decades, the event has developed into the most significant and important exhibition and conference for power electronics. I’ve had the privilege of being able to witness this and, to a certain extent, shape the progress from the very beginning.”

Focus on the job market: “Next Career Level”

The fact that many exhibitors are bringing an HR representative this year so as to take advantage of the networking and recruiting opportunities on-site, proves there is still a lack of qualified personnel in the global power electronics industry.

The “Next Career Level” joint stand therefore serves as the central meeting point for companies and candidates. Alongside two job boards, there will be a dedicated area for initial meetings. Leading companies such as Infineon Technologies AG, GvA Leistungselektronik GmbH and Skeleton Technologies GmbH will be using this additional platform to present their firms.

All exhibiting companies with current vacancies will be indicated on the floor plan, as well as at the stand itself with the “Next Career Level” symbol.
