104 exhibitors, including 10 startups, are in place at this year's EOT - Electronics of Tomorrow, and the joy of anticipation among the exhibitors is great. At the same time, EOT is this time, among other things, ready with the new sound area The Wave, and also the winner of the IoT Solution of the Year will be announced at the trade fair, which takes place on 9-11 May 2023 at MCH Messecenter Herning.

The air will be buzzing with electronics, software, hardware and technology in general when EOT - Electronics of Tomorrow opens its doors on Tuesday 9 May for three days packed with knowledge and face-to-face meetings, award ceremonies, conferences and exhibitors. Exhibitors in particular are looking forward to three productive days.

- We have high expectations of meeting visitors who are both potential new and existing customers, and we look forward to hearing more about their projects, wishes and what we can do to help them. It's a great opportunity to show visitors what makes Mekoprint a good business partner in many areas, says Stig Bergendorff, Sales Director at Mekoprint, and continues:

- The EOT trade fair creates a good framework for meeting visitors in excellent conditions, where we as exhibitors can focus primarily on the meeting, and where EOT has taken care of all the practicalities. A really good concept that is appreciated by both visitors and exhibitors.

Also at Phoenix Contact, they believe that EOT is the perfect forum for both networking and product presentation:

- The world is becoming increasingly interconnected, and that means more interfaces on devices. We offer a comprehensive range of data link connectors - an ideal range for us to present to the very audience that EOT attracts. In addition, EOT is a great opportunity to network with professionals and to identify new trends and tendencies within the industry, says Anders Tvede, Product Manager at Device Connections, Phoenix Contact.

Prestigious awards
Also at EOT, the prestigious IoT Solution of the Year Award will be presented and the winner of the Pitching Contest for Startups will also be found. The winner will be awarded DKK 50,000 and, as a new element, a gift voucher from Larsen & Birkeholm for a Danish Patent worth DKK 35,000-40,000. The Pitching Contest for Startups takes place on Tuesday and is skilfully managed by host David Guldager, one of Denmark's leading experts in technology and digital trends.

The nominees for the IoT Solution of the Year award are IoT Fabrikken from Roskilde, Xtellio/Xtel Wireless from Aalborg and EG Danmark, which has branches all over the country.

- This year's nominees are taking advantage of a trend of openness to the fact that data can come from several different actors and data sources and not just from their own IoT devices and data sources. This gives the customers greater flexibility in their everyday lives. Despite various crises, the nominees have also been able to adapt to the market situation and launch solutions, that, among other things, can help customers save energy, says Camilla Føns Mortensen, IoT Community Lead for the Nordic IoT Centre.

FORCE Technology, together with the Alexandra Institute, is behind the Nordic IoT Centre, which presents the IoT of the Year Award together with EOT, DigitalLead, DI Digital, Ingeniøren, KL and Aarhus University. The award was first presented at the 2021 edition of EOT, and this year the winner of the award will be announced on Wednesday morning at the Future Stage, which subsequently sets the stage for a conference track specifically about IoT.

News and conferences
Among the new initiatives at this year's edition of EOT is the event area The Wave, which is dedicated to sound and which features both an exhibition, entrepreneurs, examples of sound technology and a conference with specific cases and exciting researchers in the programme. The area has been created in collaboration with Danish Sound Cluster and Sound Hub Denmark.

Additionally, the trade fair now also has exhibitors within 3D, and this year there are not just one, but two high-profile lunch keynote speakers, i.e. B.S. Christiansen and Flemming Dybbøl, who will speak on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively.

Overall, this year EOT will feature more than 55 exciting conferences and workshops within 10 conference tracks, providing ample opportunity to explore new technology trends and innovations and to network with industry professionals.

EOT - Electronics of Tomorrow takes place on 9-11 May 2023 at MCH Messecenter Herning and press accreditation can be requested here.

Camilla Føns Mortensen, IoT Community Lead for Nordic IoT Centre, on IoT now and in the future:

- IoT is already having a significant impact in industry, in smart cities, in private homes and in the healthcare sector, where the technology today is mainly used for monitoring and controlling various aspects and, for example, enabling more efficient and sustainable use of resources and energy. In the coming years, a greater adoption of IoT devices across industries is expected - not least in line with the development of artificial intelligence and the deployment of digital twins/metaverse etc. and with the spread of 5G and other wireless communication technologies.
