The second edition of Microwave & RF closed on 11th April, after two successful and busy days. A good turnout since 1,897 visitors came to see the latest products of some 60 companies and partners who exhibited this year, mainly exhibitors who are manufacturers, distributors, from design or R&D offices, and whose areas of predilection apply inter alia to Military & Defence, Aeronautics and Space, and Telecommunications.
741 delegates could also follow the presentations of a programme of 7 cycles of specific and high quality lectures, very popular each time and, in particular, perfect for an update on the problematic of the moment.
Over both days, the lecture rooms were packed! We should say that the themes presented, especially EMC, but also technologies of antennas, detection and communication in RF and optics, Mems RF, 4G mobile Radio, etc. are subjects that concern the work of engineers and project managers who have become loyal visitors to the show!
Led by the best experts in these areas, these conferences are now undoubtedly a strong and compelling moment of the show. As proof, attendance at sessions taking place non-stop in three rooms at the same time increased still further this year. (741 delegates against 521 in 2012)
For a more concrete part, conferences about applications and products offered by the exhibitors perfectly fulfilled their purpose: that of directly offering visitors productive discussions on new techniques of exhibitors, expertise and implementation recommendations.
This second edition of Microwave & RF kept its promises well, in perfect synergy with the neighbouring exhibitions, "Solutions Electroniques" and "Analyse Industrielle". Microwave & RF 2013 exhibitors mostly said they met highly qualified and motivated visitors at their stands, looking for precise solutions, and most of them with real projects in progress.
