Embedded World is without a doubt among the most important annual events for the engineering ecosystem. Each year, more than 30,000 visitors and 900 exhibitors descend upon the historic city of Nuremberg, Germany to discover new embedded technologies and solutions spanning the gamut of industry applications. The conference itself continues to grow year-over-year bolstered by burgeoning IoT solutions within automotive, building automation, communications, energy, white goods, and more.
While there are certainly a number of common themes looking back and comparing to prior years’ events, Embedded World 2017 spotlighted a number of new important hardware trends for the ecosystem to consider and account for including the groundswell around the RISC-V architecture, differentiation through versatility, and growing demand/requirements for embedded security rooted in hardware.
Embedded World is a critical conference for the ecosystem and engineering community every year. The vast majority of leading embedded technology suppliers, distributors, and customers have a chance to come together and have critical conversations on developing new business models and strategies. VDC looks forward to breaking new total meeting records at next year’s event in early 2018.
