Successful start for the next level of PMRExpo

December 1, 2023

Hotspot for Secure Communication +++ More exhibitors and visitors +++ Increasing internationality

“The way the exhibitors presented themselves this year for PMRExpo has given the trade fair a completely new face”, was the the impression of many exhibitors and visitors after three days of the trade fair experience. With this impressive presence, PMRExpo 2023 reinforced its relevance as the leading European trade fair for Secure Communication and set new standards. The success marks a decisive step for the continued future development of the trade fair.

“What this year’s PMRExpo offered in terms of scope and quality is surely a new level. As a European business and innovation platform for Secure Communication, we have set an important standard and want to continue to expand the leading role of PMRExpo in the market for secure and readily-available communication”, according to Oliver Frese, Chief Operating Officer of Koelnmesse. “We are the hub for industry leaders and specialists in the field of Secure Communication and of professional mobile radio. In addition to the familiar core themes of public safety and critical infrastructures, we will in future also concentrate even more on themes of relevance for industry like 5G campus networks and cybersecurity”, the COO continued.

Bernhard Klinger, Chairman of the Board of the Bundesverband Professioneller Mobilfunk (PMeV), the conceptual sponsor of the trade fair, also came to a positive conclusion. The goal to make PMRExpo, Europe’s leading trade fair for Secure Communication, even more diverse, more digital and more international was achieved in 2023. The exhibitor offering was outstanding in terms of quantity, quality and in the breadth hoped for by PMeV. Rapidly advancing digitalisation via mission- and business-critical mobile broadband communication was reflected both in the exhibitors and in the lectures. We will continue along the path we have embarked on with Koelnmesse and look forward with optimism to PMRExpo 2024.“

More exhibitors and visitors

PMRExpo brings together companies from the fields of application solutions, control centre and security technology, infrastructure elements, device accessories and service providers at one place. A total of 236 exhibitors from 25 countries presented their solutions and innovations revolving around Secure Communication and professional mobile radio for BOS, KRITIS and industry. They met with around 5,000 visitors from 57 countries. A total of 37 percent of visitors came from abroad. In addition to Germany, many visitors came from other European countries as well as from the Middle East and the Americas. The high quality on both sides – exhibitors and visitors – makes PMRExpo an important international business platform with a broad reach.

Networking meets industry impulses

The focus of the trade fair on knowledge transfer and practical insights was intensified by the integration of various event elements. The PMRExpo Summit thus offered the industry an important forum, in which the latest technologies, security aspects and business opportunities were presented. Here, participants also have the possibility to enter into an exchange with renowned industry experts. The PMeV and Koelnmesse developed the summit programme in close cooperation and on the basis of the expertise of PMeV members. Supplementing the summit, the Connecting Area offered further possibilities for networking with exhibitors, trade visitors, start-ups and media representatives as well as a diverse and international lecture programme. This offered practical insights into the industry: from expert lectures through product presentations to start-up pitches and the award ceremony for the Hackathon@PMRExpo. With the two formats, the PMRExpo met its claim of being the “Knowledge Leader” for the industry.
