PCIM Europe 2020 to take place digitally due to the coronavirus pandemic

Apr 22, 2020

Due to the increasing spread of Covid-19 in Europe and the associated ban on all major German events up to, and including the end of August, the PCIM Europe exhibition and conference 2020 in Nuremberg has been cancelled. The event had already been postponed from May to 28 – 30 July 2020, and will now take place again next year. The virtual format will offer a digital alternative for knowledge transfer in early July 2020.

According to the Federal government's guidelines dated 15 April 2020, all major events are prohibited in Germany until 31 August 2020. For this reason, the international PCIM Europe trade fair and conference cannot take place this year in Nurnberg from 28 – 30 July 2020 as planned.

Digital formats are 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 also includes an online conference with live and on-demand solutions for interactive presentations. We plan to implement these virtual formats with digital presentation and exchange opportunities from 7 – 8 July 2020. Further information will follow shortly.

"It is a great pity to have to cancel this year's PCIM Europe in Nuremberg. However, the health of our exhibitors, visitors, speakers, participants, partners and employees, is of course, our top priority," explains Petra Haarburger, Managing Director of Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH. "We hope that cancelling the event can make a contribution to further delaying the spread of Covid-19 in Europe, so that our everyday lives will gradually return to normality in the near future.“

The world’s leading exhibition and conference for power electronics and its applications will take place regularly from 4 – 6 May 2021 in Nuremberg. Current information is available at pcim-europe.com.
