IDTechEx Research announced today that Europe's largest event on emerging technologies, IDTechEx Show! held in Berlin on 27-28 April, grew 27% vs. last year's event. This year's exhibition and conference featured attendees from 57 countries with 171 exhibitors and 2,300 attendees. The event covered a number of interrelated emerging technologies, including printed electronics, wearable technology, IoT, advanced materials, energy storage and electric vehicles. The IDTechEx Show! hosts multiple tracks within the Conference and has a shared exhibition to bring all of these supply chains together in one place, allowing companies across the value chain to meet each other and explore their opportunities.

The feedback has been tremendous, with the event clearly facilitating great business discussions and partnerships."
