“For me, what makes electronica special is its industry and application relevance. There are currently lots of competing trends in the public sphere. However, the importance of electronics for digitalization, for networking with the Internet of Things, and for new transmission standards is rarely examined in any detail. It is at electronica. Users and decision-makers interact with experts from trade and the industry, making the challenges and technical solutions more tangible.”

Torsten Janwlecke, President of Device Connectors division, PHOENIX CONTACT, Germany
