Electronica 2022 held from 15-18 November in Munich, has been hailed a success by organisers after it attracted a higher share of international visitors than previous years, and received record levels of positive feedback.

Organisers report that 70,000 visitors from 100 countries attended the trade fair at which 2,144 exhibitors showcased their innovations across 14 halls. A supporting program consisting of conferences, forums and special events addressed topics including the energy transition, supply chain bottlenecks, the scarcity of raw materials and shortages of skilled workers.

“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,” said 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. 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.”

Exhibitors enthusiastic 

“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.”

“Exhibitors were extremely satisfied, both in terms of visitor quality and the results of conversations with customers, most of which were conducted on the highest decision-making level,“ stated Katja Stolle, Exhibition Director of electronica. „As you walked through the halls, you could really feel just how much the industry was enjoying this reunion and personal contact.”

Semicon Europa 

SEMICON Europa was held at the same time as electronica and provided exhibitors with an opportunity to showcase their semiconductor-manufacturing solutions and products. It served as a fitting complement to the trade fair. Laith Altimime, President of SEMI Europe said: “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.”

2,144 exhibitors traveled from 48 countries and regions to Munich (2018: 3,124 | 53), about 64 percent of them came from countries outside of Germany (2018: 70 percent). Approximately 70,000 visitors from around 100 countries and regions attended the trade fair (2018: 81,471 | 101). The share of international visitors totaled about 54 percent (2018: 50 percent). After Germany, the top 10 visitor countries were (in this order): Italy, Austria, France, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Switzerland, USA, Israel, Spain, Turkey and Sweden.
