Commenting on the conference in 2018, Professor Dr Leo Lorenz, Chairman, PCIM Advisory Board, shared: “The individual presentations are at a high technical level. It’s very important for the industry that you have Chinese industry players displaying their work here, and this conference does attract quality Chinese companies. For international participants, the main benefit for them to attend is to find out what’s going on in China. China is a key market for everyone in the industry and PCIM is a platform the industry needs as a door to China.”
