SENSOR+TEST 2014: 575 Exhibitors & More Than 8,000 Visitors

After three trade-fair days with many visitors, the 21st SENSOR+TEST Measuring Fair in Nürnberg came to a successful conclusion. A total of more than 8,000 professionals from Germany and abroad made use of the opportunity to obtain comprehensive information on the state of the art in sensing, measuring, and testing technologies at the exhibitors' stands and in numerous presentations. Not only the visitor figures were up, but the number of exhibitors also increased slightly to 575 (last year 543). Moreover, the 36% share of international exhibitors set a new record.

Christoph Kleye, managing director, IS-LINE GmbH, and chairman of the Exhibition Committee, confirmed the overall satisfaction of the exhibitors: "The SENSOR+TEST 2014," he said, "was very positive for us exhibitors. We had the feeling that the industry's innovation drive was on the rise. And this results in lots of new, valuable projects for sensor and measuring technology. Both, the quantity and quality, of the inquiries was very good. To ensure that the SENSOR+TEST can keep up with this growth, we would like the Nürnberg Exhibition Center to give us improved floor space."

The two parallel conferences - the 17. ITG/GMA-Fachtagung "Sensoren und Messsysteme" and the "etc2014 - 34th European Telemetry and Test Conference" were very well attended. Complementing the conferences for the first time was the "Telemetry Village" in the lobby of the SENSOR+TEST, a community stand dealing with telemetrics, telecontrol, test instrumentation, and data processing. Werner Lange, executive director, Lange-Electronic GmbH, and president of the European Society of Telemetry, also expressed his great satisfaction, saying, "The debut of the etc in Nürnberg was a big success for all participants. Our members appreciate the friendly atmosphere at the SENSOR+TEST. We can all take advantage of the resulting synergy effects. We will definitely come again in 2016!"

On the last day of the fair, Holger Bödeker, managing director of the AMA Service GmbH, commented: "The upbeat mood in the industry and the added stimulus from the etc, the European Telemetry and Test Conference, held for the first time parallel to the SENSOR+TEST, have contributed to the outstanding results of this year's SENSOR+TEST."

The 10,000-euro AMA Innovation Award 2014 was presented on the opening day of the fair to a team of young scientists from the University of Stuttgart and Mahr GmbH for their innovative development of "TWI, a Tilted Wave Interferometer for quick and flexible measurement of aspheric and free-formsurfaces."

The next SENSOR+TEST will be held from 19 to 21 May 2015 at the same venue, the Nürnberg Exhibition Center, along with the biannual AMA Conferences, the SENSOR and IRS².
