As the COVID-19 pandemic (mostly) fades in to the past, individuals are slowly (or quickly) returning to their pre-pandemic lifestyles. Tourists are returning to airports, cruise ships and hotels. Weddings are on the increase. Movies are getting released with some regularity.
In the professional world, trade shows are on the rebound. In the high-tech industry, just about every major trade show was scheduled this year. Additionally, trade show attendance is on the rebound. Old friends are happy to see each other. Or Zoom colleagues are becoming in-person colleagues for the very first time.
The upswing in trade show attendance and enthusiasm was never more apparent that at electronica 2022 recently held in Munich. First-person feedback and anecdotal stories offer evidence of a high-energy event with good collaboration and networking between suppliers, partners and customers.
Also, a little weissbier was consumed for good measure! It’s Bavaria after all!
