A look at this year’s calendar will reveal the absence of three trade shows previously held in Munich, Germany: eCarTec, Materialica and sMove. They’re not gone, but have been integrated into the eMove360° Europe, which takes place from Oct. 17 through 19. Robert Metzger, CEO of Munich Expo, said that the change in program had already paid off. This April, the number of exhibitors had already surpassed last year’s figure
The eighth and last eCarTec took place in Munich, Germany, on Oct. 18 to 20 last year. There will be another conference about electric transportation in fall in the Bavarian state capital, but its new name is “eMove360°” and it will offer a wider variety of topics about “Transportation 4.0” (electric transportation, connected and autonomous driving, materials and design).
MunichExpo, Germany, has taken a small step back by retracting the name change made in summer 2016 for this year’s event, postponing the issue to 2017. A spokesperson for the Bavarian organizer explained to H2-international that the move was necessary for “legal reasons.” This means that 2016 will still see an eCarTec trade show and an eCarTec Award.
