By adopting the claim "embedded. responsible. sustainable." the 2023 embedded world trade fair and conferences will focus on key topics for the future of the embedded industry. Which factors define a responsible approach to AI? What is the background to the EU Cyber Resilience Act? How do embedded systems help make the digital world more sustainable and how can embedded systems themselves be made more sustainable? Panel discussions at the embedded world Exhibition&Conference 2023 will provide substance for intensive discussions.

Sustainability: The topic of the century

"The significance of embedded systems can hardly be overestimated when it comes to the topic of the century, namely sustainability," emphasizes Prof. Dr.-Ing. Axel Sikora, Chairman of the embedded world Conference.

And of course the NürnbergMesse is also addressing the issue by developing group-wide sustainability strategies. Since 2016, for example, only green electricity has been used in the exhibition halls at embedded world and almost all halls have now converted to LED lighting. And when it comes to catering, attention is being paid to the deployment of sustainable packaging solutions and use of regional products. The event already employs a high percentage of reusable system stands and from 2024 onwards sustainably certified exhibition stands will be introduced. Furthermore, the event team is currently looking into eco-certified carpeting and switching to recyclable paper for ticketing. "Looked at individually, these are all small steps, but taken together, they pave the way toward more sustainable event execution," emphasizes Executive Director Benedikt Weyerer, and adds "we constantly ask ourselves whether we can't use a more sustainable substitute product."

Meeting place for a "cool industry”

The NürnbergMesse team including event manager Benedikt Weyerer are already looking forward to a reunion with the embedded community: "Because it's a cool industry with even cooler people. At embedded young meets old, experience meets newcomer, national meets international, start-up meets global player, and everyone is focused on embedded systems - that's what makes this industry so appealing."

The embedded award, the exhibitor forums and the embedded world Student Day are all elements that go to make this trade fair exciting for the event manager and the entire team. "When, on the third day of embedded, in addition to the usual business activity in the halls, more than 1,000 students can be seen roaming the exhibition grounds, you can already get a glimpse of the future of the industry," says Weyerer enthusiastically.

Since 2019, there has also been an embedded world start-up area. One of the area's first participants was a software start-up from France, which actually won the embedded award in the start-up category that year. "Last year, the managing director of the company called me to say that embedded world is the most important trade fair for him, because he made his first business contacts with a future investor here, and his business is now ramping up," says Weyerer, "That's great feedback and an incentive for us to expand this kind of format."

The embedded community can therefore look forward to three exciting trade fair days again in 2023. Preparations are now in full swing to ensure that embedded world once again becomes the place to be for the entire industry. Save the date: 14.-16. March 2023 and a free ticket with the voucher code ew23GGELNCen.
