Bonus Conference

Power Conference

The Conference is organized by Aspencore in cooperation with Bodo’s Power Systems and provides a networking platform to share experiences, discuss technical trends, and network with each other.

Wide Bandgap Semiconductors are transforming power electronics designs across many applications such as data centers, renewable energy, automotive, and many more. This conference will not only explain why, how, and where this is happening, but also offer the opportunity to meet industry experts, gather information and share knowledge & experiences.

The event is split into 2 major parts

  1. Networking Event with Industry Experts
  2. Monday, 14th Dec 2020, starting at 2:00 pm
  3. At the half-day networking event on Dec. 14, delegates will have the opportunity to meet industry experts, gather information, share knowledge, and network with peers. In the evening there will be a Reception and Get-together.
  1. Technical Conference with Table-Top Exhibition
  2. Tuesday, 15th Dec 2020, starting at 9:00 am 
  3. During the full-day technical conference on Dec. 15 attendees will gain the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions on which wide-bandgap materials, platforms, and devices can best serve their requirements in current or upcoming designs.

The conference is being held annually in Munich in December.

And just to sum everything up, I want to say that visiting and participating in power electronics events is still one of the most powerful marketing tools in B2B. It may seem that the expenses might be too big, but in fact you get much more as a result. Do not be afraid to try something new for your business!
