The EPLAN Virtual Fair is opening its digital doors this year for the sixth time and for two full days in a row for the first time. Visitors can expect a wide range of topics covering professional engineering and integrated, end-to-end processes. Live talks for c-level executives, customer best practices and a new partner area offer attendees constructive inspiration. Topic-specific and country-specific webcasts and software demonstrations of the new solutions found on the EPLAN Platform provide incentives and outlooks for further developments, including in cloud contexts.
The EPLAN Virtual Fair has a globally established format and this time has a new, clear design with numerous topic-specific expansions for management and users alike. “After the success of the past years, we are expanding the EPLAN Virtual Fair to cover two full days across different time zones,” says Haluk Menderes, Managing Director, EPLAN Software & Service. The reason behind the change is that there are more topics to cover and visitor interest is on the rise. With almost a 20 percent increase in participants from more than 70 countries in 2020, the importance of this major virtual event is clear.
Top-class leadership talks at the management level on the ecosystem of industrial automation, the potential to be found in industrial panel building, and the topic of roundtrip engineering are just a few of the many themes being covered throughout the multifaceted conference program. This year those themes are being supplemented with new live talks for industry management pertaining to Automotive, Energy, Building Automation, Maritime and Process industries.
“After the success of the past years, we’re expanding the EPLAN Virtual Fair to cover
two full days across different time zones,” says Haluk Menderes, Managing Director,
EPLAN Software & Service.
There will be six different live demonstrations on software topics each day, and experts will be providing practical insights into EPLAN Platform innovations. The opportunities of the new cloud services as part of EPLAN ePulse are also on the program, not to mention the efficiency potential that can be found in control cabinet and switchgear system engineering. There is also some fun element added with various online games where attendees will be able to (virtually) compete against one another. The prizes include three online update trainings for the EPLAN Platform.
Partners to get their own presence
There is a newly created community area, offering all the companies participating in the EPLAN Partner Network the possibility to participate with their own ‘onsite’ presence. It is set up to be a small trade show within the Virtual Fair. Numerous opportunities for networking are yet another reason for visitors from around the world to attend: a live chat, this time including a 1:1 video chat, offers everyone interested the chance to talk shop and exchange ideas across national borders in a virtual space.
