embedded world 2017 Consolidates its Role as Leading International Exhibition


In its 15th round, embedded world in Nuremberg, Germany, has once again impressively reinforced its status as the number one international gathering for the embedded system technology experts. In 2017 it again reported significant increases in all important exhibitionspecific KPIs and broke new records after three action-packed days of trade fair and congresses. More than 30,000 trade visitors – including an international contingent of 38% – came to Nuremberg for an event that reached new heights with more than 1,000 exhibitors (+8%) from 40 countries. The professional community was equally impressed by the concurrent embedded world and electronic displays conferences: 1,796 embedded and display experts from all over the world (+8%) travelled to Nuremberg to enjoy professional dialogue and knowledge-sharing. Highly Satisfied Exhibitors This year too, the mood in the halls was excellent and both exhibitors and trade visitors were very satisfied with the event they call their own. Both groups benefited from the professional dialogue with one another and a number of new projects were instigated. All of this is also confirmed by the exhibitor poll, in which nine out of ten participating companies rated the event a success. Based on this upbeat mood and the results at their stands, equally as many companies said that they would be exhibiting again in 2018. Around nine out of ten expect follow-on business from the event and 94% were able to forge new business contacts. In addition, 95% confirmed that they managed to reach their target groups. Almost without exception, trade visitors were satisfied with the content of the event and range of products on display. Nine out of ten of the 30,017 trade visitors are involved in the procurement decisions of their companies. This is further evidence of the great importance of the fair for the embedded community. No less than 86% would recommend visiting embedded world to their business contacts and colleagues, while 97% stated that they would be visiting embedded world again in 2018. Successful Conference For years now the embedded world Conference has been the equivalent of a transfer of knowledge par excellence, as the meeting place of the most innovative embedded systems developers from all over the world, and at the same time the biggest European conference devoted to embedded systems development. Here, all the major topics and themes in and around embedded systems development are presented in papers, enlarged upon and discussed in classes. Everything heard was solution-oriented throughout, directly supporting the activities and focus of embedded systems developers. The success of the embedded world Conference bases on direct participation by a whole community — hardware and software designers of a segment that’s virtually unequalled in creating innovative ideas for countless applications. Conference content, solicitously selected by an international jury, guarantees the necessary balance of knowledge and annual unfolding and analysis of the latest developments and trends. But what’s special about the embedded world Conference is that contributions are consistently solution-oriented, of great value and directly aiding both single participants and in fact the whole segment in what confronts them daily. The embedded world Conference was always on the spot when new ideas and solutions were forged and emerged: the introduction of multicore processors in embedded applications for instance, the triumphant advance of new microcomputer architectures, new wireless communication standards, the introduction of new programming languages and technologies, plus the new test and verification methods that subsequently resulted. The theme of the embedded world conference was “Securely Connecting the Embedded World”. As well as the two main thematic focus areas “Internet of Things” and “Security & Safety”, the programme included another four conference clusters: “Software & Systems
