Nearly 70,000 visitors travelled to Munich this week as the electronica exhibition returned.

2,144 exhibitors travelled from 48 countries and regions to 14 halls in Munich, about 64% from outside Germany, marking the international nature of the event.

The share of international visitors totalled about 54%, led by visitors from Italy, followed by Austria, France, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Switzerland, USA, Israel, Spain, Turkey and Sweden.

The attendance compares to  81,471 trade visitors and 3,124 exhibitors in 2018 before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Semicon Europa was also held in parallel spread over just under one and a half halls.

Some articles from the show:

“electronica 2022 impressively confirmed its status as world leading trade fair and demonstrated once again that Munich is THE trade fair location for the international electronics industry,” summarizes Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, CEO of Messe München. “We are delighted that the number of visitors was only around 14 percent below the record result of 2018, and that the share of international visitors at around 54 percent was even higher than at the previous events—an outstanding result in these times. What’s more, according to the trade fair survey, our exhibitors and visitors were more satisfied with electronica this year than ever before.”

Dr. Gunther Kegel, President of ZVEI, the German Association of the Electronics and Digital Industry, noted that electronica highlighted its position as a world-leading trade fair and conference platform for the electronics industry once again this year: “The mood is positive—back again live in Munich after four years, the booths were well-frequented, there were lots of conversations and valuable contacts made. Once again, we realized one thing: Face-to-face contacts and direct discussions at trade fairs are irreplaceable.”

“What a brilliant comeback by electronica!”, said Philip Harting, Chairman of the Advisory Board for electronica and CEO of the HARTING Technology Group. “The trade fair has never been so international, so specific in conversations with customers, so target-oriented from the visitors’ side. Munich as a trade fair site has demonstrated that international visitors will come to Germany when the package fits and the messages are clear. I’m already looking forward to electronica 2024.”

“At this year’s Semicon Europa, strategically co-located with electronica, industry leaders provided insights into microelectronics trends that are crucial to industry innovation and growth in Europe and around the world. Record attendance and a sold-out exhibition area—SEMI is excited about this year’s results,” said Laith Altimime, President of SEMI Europe.

The next electronica will take place in Munich from November 12-15, 2024.
