Why attend GEF?



For over eight years the Global Electronics Forum (GEF) has been hosting some of the top electronics device and application developers to present discuss and collaborate on future innovation, strategy, challenge and opportunity within the market.

In the beginnings, GEF served a broad range of sectors, investigating opportunity and innovation across the board, and covering challenges relevant to all parties. The event brought together industries with little other opportunity to engage, whilst also introducing developers to suppliers who could support their goals for product differentiation and industry leadership.

For 2018, with electronics innovation advancing at such a fast pace, and market applications diversifying by industry and objective, the GEF programme has become more focused and integrated. For 2018, the agenda reflects key concerns and opportunities for two large and leading industries; the vast area of consumer electronics and the quickly adapting automotive industry.

As a unique offering, GSEF will allow application developers from these industries to benefit from engineered content within two-streams to support the various priorities of each industry. Whether you are, a mobile handset designer looking to maintain industry leadership in a competitive marketplace, an automotive microcontroller expert with a priority in optimising defect inspection or a start-up technology company founder keen to explore design options for the latest wearable device, GEF provides a platform for you.

Outside of the programme, GSEF is being built to support your objectives as an electronic application developer. The GSEF campaign is responding to your feedback and targeting new and unique technology and service providers who can support you in reaching your goals. For you this means relevant and lucrative meetings on site which result in real-life benefit to you and your company.

Our promise to you is that; GSEF will directly contribute to your bottom line whether it be through cost saving efficiencies, lucrative investment opportunities, solutions to resource-intensive challenges, or simply opening a door to a new strategic direction.

Who should attend GEF?

The objective of GEF is to provide solutions and opportunities to electronic application developers globally. This is achieved through strategic and technology-based content, various networking environments and also a formal 1:1 business meeting set-up which allows sourcing and selection of qualified supplier solutions.

For this reason we expect to see the leading executives from all electronic application developers within the consumer electronics, and automotive space, worldwide.
