What are the highlights of CWIEME Berlin next edition?
New for 2016, CWIEME Matchmaking is a complimentary networking tool to help both visitors and exhibitors get the most out of their time at CWIEME Berlin. CWIEME Matchmaking provides access to thousands of contacts helping participants reach the right people in the right organisations. Participants can use the tool to arrange meetings in the dedicated matchmaking lounge or at exhibitor stands. Interested parties can sign up for their free account.
One of the strengths of the show is its seminar programme. Do you recommend us a session in particular?
There will be 29 seminars over the three days this year covering market trends, technological developments in materials and manufacturing methods, and legislation. Dr Konstantinos Laskaris, principal motor designer at Tesla Motors will be giving a presentation entitled ‘Optimal motor selection considering power density and efficiency for EV applications.’
Dr Laskaris previously spoke at CWIEME Chicago in 2015 and his session was extremely well received. I would also recommend the panel session ‘New EU regulation on transformers – background ruling and industry’s response’ with Mahesh Sampat, President of EMS International Consulting, Professor Angelo Baggini, Professor in Electrical Engineering at the University of Bergamo and Chairman of the CENELEC TC14 committee for power transformers, and Kai Pollari, Manager Energy Efficiency Global Marketing for
Give us some reasons to don't miss the show.
“Every time I come here I see how much the show is growing. CWIEME is important because there are very few events where you can find people who work in design but also in manufacturing in one place,” says Flavio Kalluf, senior R&D design engineer at Whirlpool.
Dr Giorgio Vercesi from Dupont Protection Technologies in EMEA says: “Dupont has been coming to CWIEME for years. It’s fascinating and the most relevant show in Europe for us. It really is the only place to be for all the suppliers and those interested in the transformer and rotating industry.”
Finally, give us some participation results from the last edition (visitors, exhibitors...)
