EMV 2021 to be held digitally

14 Dec 2020

Due to the pandemic and its effects, the EMV trade fair and parallel workshops are to take place digitally. The event is designed to once again give the EMC community a platform for exchange. Preparations for the online solution are already underway.

“We assume that even in the spring of 2021, travel restrictions and further limitations can still be expected,” explains Petra Haarburger, President of the event organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt. “We are delighted to be able to offer the international EMC community a digital alternative. Due to the early switch to an online edition, we are glad to provide exhibitors, speakers and all other attendees time to plan their participation.”

Networking and knowledge exchange in focus

As with the on-site event, the focus of the digital platform is on a practice-oriented exchange of knowledge and networking. Participants can use the chat and video call function, as well as discussion features and product presentations, to exchange information in a targeted manner. The matchmaking feature, based on areas of interests, offerings, and many other aspects, supports the community in quickly finding the right partner. “For the international EMC community in industry and science, this opens up new opportunities for efficient and sustainable networking,” Petra Haarburger emphasizes.
