"We are very pleased with the success of our 'PCIM digital days'. However, the personal encounter remains important and cannot be replaced digitally. All the more reason for us to look forward to PCIM Europe next year in Nuremberg, however we are convinced that digital formats will continue to be a useful addition in the future," commented Petra Haarburger, Managing Director of Mesago Messe Frankfurt, with an outlook for the future.
The exhibition and conference for power electronics and its applications will again be held in Nuremberg from 4th-6th May 2021.
