National Electronics Week returns April 2015

13 February 2015

Now in its 8th year the annual National Electronics Week Exhibition will be taking up residence once again at the NEC, Birmingham on 21st & 22nd April 2015.

With an extra 400 meters of floorspace this year, the event will offer more exhibitors and technical content than ever before. 

Claire Saunders, director of the event explains the choice of venue, saying the NEC has always worked well, it is in the heart of the UK meaning that getting there is easy for everyone whether they are coming by car, train and even international exhibitors and visitors can fly right to the doorstep. It’s all about making it as easy as possible for everyone in the industry to access the value that this show provides. 

Staying with their winning formula of splitting the show into four sectors, here is what is on offer this year:

Component & power

With exhibiting companies such as Wurth Electronics, TDK Lambda, Geyer Electronics and Ecopac there will be opportunities for students to talk to those currently working in the industry and see what the latest developments are.
The Electronics Component Supply Network (ESCN) will be hosting the seminar program including topics such as wearable technology, lighting, the internet of things and energy efficiency.

Design & test

Industry leaders in this sector who are exhibiting include Rohde& Schwarz, Aspen Electronics, Keysight Technologies, National Instruments, JTAG, Teledyne Lecroy and many more. Again students will be able to meet with the experts on the stands and even take the opportunity to start thinking about companies they may wish to apply to.

The PXI Show will be incorporated into this area where there will be a room showcasing the four stages of the PXI process (modules, chassis & controllers, software & system integration). There will also be Test & Measurements Masterclasses from Electronics World Magazine.

Embedded & software

This area will be made up of key exhibitors & technical content with a full seminar program from The Embedded Masterclass in conjunction with Vehicle Electronics with speakers such as Freescale.

Production & EMS

Exhibitors here include BAE Systems, Advanced Rework Technology, Europlacer, Etek-Europe & Pace Europe. The content program is as impressive as the line up. NPL & SMART GROUP are coming together to provide the Printing & Assembly Automatic Optical Inspection Experience and they also have the N.E.W. Hand Soldering Competition, open to all and with an adjudicating panel of IPC accredited trainers from Advanced Rework Technology and E-Tek Technical Services. This year's winner will receive a high tech prize and the annual trophy.

Tickets to the exhibition including all seminars are free of charge, as is parking and Wi-Fi, you can register for yours at
