The Conrad Convention: all about electronics
November 10 to 12: three days packed with expert keynote speeches, product launches and virtual workshops held on the Conrad Sourcing Platform for people from all across Europe
• Electronics topics first-hand, despite Corona: online convention instead of trade fair attendance
• All the latest trends – innovative products aimed at the test & measurement sector
• Meeting in the virtual world: talks and workshops by experts for experts
Hirschau, Germany, October 2020. A lot of things are different this year. The chances of meeting business partners face-to-face and of building contact networks at trade fairs have become few and far between. In order to further enhance the relationship with customers despite Corona, Conrad Electronic will provide key information regarding the electronics sector as well as know-how about the Conrad Sourcing Platform in digital form in mid-November. Stretching over three days, Conrad‘s Online Convention at convention.conrad.com will revolve around the motto “Explore our event – Evolve your business.”
From the human factor to the Internet of Things
As the event is aimed at electronics enthusiasts from all across Europe, all talks and panel discussions will be in English. Selected expert keynote speakers will focus on the latest trends in the world of electronics, take a closer look at the challenges and opportunities in what has been the year of the Corona pandemic, and come up with future projections. The talks are supplemented by highly informative podcasts and interactive workshops, both with plenty of memorable content.
“The idea behind our convention is to provide people representing the electronics sector with answers to the most urgent questions they may have,” explains Ralf Bühler, CSO B2B at Conrad Electronic. Each day will be centred around a specific topic. Day 1 covers digital transformation, Day 2 looks at sourcing, and Day 3 focuses on products. Needless to say, the convention also involves talking about how to utilise the Conrad Sourcing Platform and its OCIs, APIs and other services for simple, fast, and comprehensive procurement tailored to the needs of B2B customers.
Latest trends and products across the industry
It goes without saying that the talks will also look at the latest trends and what else has been happening in the test & measurement sector, which includes the launch of a handheld oscilloscope and an equipment tester by VOLTCRAFT. It is not only product managers and independent experts who will offer a behind-the-scenes look. Some of the brightest minds at Conrad will talk about digitalisation and platform economy, showcasing the benefits of and opportunities provided by Conrad Connect’s IoT platform for businesses. Moreover, even the breaks between talks are bound to be highly entertaining, thanks to cooking tips, recipes and tension-relieving yoga poses for those working from home.
