CWIEME Berlin 2024 welcomes over 6,700 visitors and exhibitors

Trade fair focussing on collaboration, creativity and community

Presentations on the E-Mobility Stage at CWIEME Berlin 2024

CWIEME Berlin welcomed thousands of visitors and exhibitors to Messe Berlin, with a  footfall across the three days of 6,700 visitors from 14 to 16 May 2024 for the trade fair for the electrotechnical industry. Over 600 exhibitors presented their latest developments in the fields of coil winding, insulation and electrical engineering in five halls, with several new products being unveiled over the three days. Visitors from over 80 countries were able to gather information on the CWIEME main stage and the e-mobility stage. This year, the main stage was sponsored by Shell and featured speakers from Siemens, Thyssenkrupp, Bosch, Hitatchi and Toyota. Speakers on the e-mobility stage included Ford, McKinsey and S&P.

Several panel discussions took place on the stages on all three days, which were very well received. On the first day, representatives from Siemens, the International Copper Association, Thyssenkrupp and Shell discussed strategies and sustainable practices in the steel, copper and oil industries. The hall was filled to capacity. Visitors gathered around the stage to learn more about the topic from the industry experts. The second day focused on diversity as part of the Women in Engineering initiative, a key theme of the 2024 show, with a panel discussion featuring speakers from Syensqo, Shell, Cargill and Women4Metals exploring how companies can encourage greater diversity in their workforces. The session, moderated by Keitlin Vandemark from Hitatchi Energy, was followed by a networking opportunity for attendees. On the third day, CWIEME Berlin focused on the "Future Engineers" programme. Numerous students took part in mentoring sessions, presentations on key future trends and a panel discussion on career opportunities in the industry.

Quotes from the CWIEME Berlin

“As first time exhibitors, Bosch has an extremely positive first impression of CWIEME Berlin,” commented Francis van der Sluis, Senior Engineer at Bosch, one of this year’s exhibitors. “We’ve met all kinds of people from several areas of the industry, including suppliers, competitors, which is vital in giving us an understanding of what is happening elsewhere, but most importantly, potential customers.” “We’re thrilled to have received such positive feedback from CWIEME Berlin attendees,” explained Patrick Hyslop, Event Director. “This year, we’ve had more speakers than ever before and a higher level of diversity amongst our exhibitors, representing over 50 countries, especially with the addition of our country pavilions for India, Latvia and the Czech Republic. When walking the halls, the spirit of collaboration, creativity and community amongst our attendees was clear. There’s such a huge amount of opportunity in our sector, with companies working towards their sustainability goals and with the rise of electric vehicles. The level of innovation is staggering and we feel honoured to have showcased so much of this at CWIEME.”

The next event in the series is CWIEME Shanghai, which opens its doors at SWEECC from 26-28 June 2024. With a large number of exhibitors signed up for CWIEME Berlin 2025, the team is already planning for next year to ensure the show remains the world's leading event for coil winding, transformers, generators, electric motor manufacturing and e-mobility.
