Top-class program for 50th anniversary
electronica is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, and will once again be the industry platform for exchange of information and expertise about electronics. From November 11 to 14, 2014, visitors to Messe München (Fair ground) can inform themselves about the whole product and service portfolios of the electronic industry: from components and systems to electronic applications and services.
This year's international trade fair revolves around automotive, embedded systems, medical electronics and lighting, as well as the overarching themes of security and energy efficiency. The program of conferences and forums will explore these exhibition topics in greater depth.
According to calculations by the German Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers' Industry Association (ZVEI), the global market for electrical and electronic products grew by three per cent last year to approximately 3.7 trillion euros. The Asian and American markets have been mainly driving this growth. This also benefits the German electrical industry: In the whole of the first quarter of 2014, new orders rose by 3 percent over the previous year. So the auspices for electronica 2014 are good.

exhibitors and trade visitors
In 2012, almost half of the 73,051 visitors and 63 percent of the 2,669 exhibitors (Fair ground) were from abroad. With its three-pillar concept of exhibition, conference and forum program, this year's electronica will again be providing the latest information about technologies, products, services and trends in the industry.
A highlight of the show, the CEO roundtable, will be devoted to the topic: "Internet of Things: Possibilities, Challenges and the Question of Security". The focus of the trade show will be on automotive, embedded systems, medical electronics and lighting, as well as the cross-cutting issues of security and energy efficiency. This is reflected, among other things, in the electronica Forum, in panel discussions and lectures.
conference and forums program
In the exhibition halls, several forums invite you to exchange ideas and dialog. The range of topics of the forums - automotive, embedded, electronica and Exhibitor Forum as well as the PCB & Components Market Place - is application-oriented and allows visitors to learn about current and future issues. These topics will be explored in greater depth within the conference program of electronica.
The electronica automotive conference, supported by ZVEI, will be held on November 10 at the ICM - Internationales Congress Center München (Fair ground).
The conference will investigate the major technology trends and strategies of the international automotive industry. Speakers are among others representatives of following companies: Audi, BMW, Daimler, Freescale, Infineon, Intel, Osram, Renesas and Visteon. This year, the focus is on lighting, sensor fusion and connectivity.
The embedded platforms conference will be looking for the second time at new technologies, concrete solution approaches and services for the development of embedded systems.
The conference will take place on November 12 and 13, in parallel with electronica, at the Press Center East of the Messe München.
