SENSOR + TEST is an annual exhibition, which takes place in Nuremberg, Germany. As a rule, editions runs for a total of three days during June and proceedings take place in Messe Nurnberg. The event is brought to you by AMA Service GmbH with special assistance from AMA - German Association for Sensors and Measurement Technology. Only trade visitors are admitted and work hours are from 09:00 am in the morning until 17:00 pm in the afternoon. Don’t know how to get to Messe Nurnberg and don’t intend to drive around with a car? You can be there in minutes, if you grab the U1 metro line. There are solid transport connections to the exhibition grounds from the airport and the city centre as well. It doesn’t take more than a few minutes to make the journey.

You always remain current with trends and emerging technology. SENSOR + TEST is the stage where the AMA Innovation Award take place and honours the companies who have made innovative contributions to the industry. Participate and you may not only benefit from the first-rate publicity, but also win 10,000 euros;

The informational program goes beyond just two conferences. There’s an event for anyone in the industry including OPTO and the VDI / VDE Expert Forum, where you will hear the leaders and experts of the day tackle the problems and challenges facing the industry;

The special topic acts as a unifying force within the exhibition itself and in the off chance the topic covers the core of your business, then you benefit from additional visibility on the ground during the exhibition itself. That’s how SENSOR + TEST succeeds!

SENSOR + TEST has performed more than well considering it’s a highly specialised exhibition. The last edition registered a little over 500 exhibitors and close to 7000 trade visitors from over 40 countries. The ratio between German nationals and foreign visitors is still in favor of Germany as only 33% of all visitors are from outside the country, but this is a metric that’s steadily improving.

The majority of international visitors represented markets in all of Europe, then followed by those in Asia, North America and Africa. Visitors work in research, development and construction, but don’t let that full you – around 91% have a say in decisions for their company. The industries that have a strong presence at SENSOR + TEST include medical engineering, consulting, machinery and plant construction, the automotive sector and other electrical industries.
