PCIM Asia 2017 closed its doors after three successful days: With 81 exhibitors and 7,000 squaremeters in the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition Center, Asia’s leading exhibition and conference about power electronics was once more a popular platform for power electronic experts.
During the three exhibition days from 27 – 29 June 2017 a total of 5,621 trade visitors from all over the world informed themselves about latest trends and developments of the industry. The exhibition is for many people again an important market place as well as a knowledge and networking platform on a high level:
“(…) PCIM Asia itself is one of the leading platforms within the field and has a reputation for being extremely professional, which is exactly why I visit the event year after year,” says Ye Chen, Principal Engineer, Shanghai Huahong Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation.
“(…) Through interaction with exhibitors, I have had an update on the industry’s trends and developments. (…) Overall, the event has provided a window encouraging information free-flow across the sector and thus providing us with more choices,” adds Zhou Kun, Engineer, Shanghai SAIC General Motors Co Ltd.
