Productronica 2009

"Innovations as driving force for surviving the current crisis" will be the topic of the CEO Round Table during productronica on November 10, 2009. The trade fair itself will also focus on this topic. It will feature the traditional podium discussion in a new format this year. The podium discussion will be held for the first time as part of the munich electronics summit, a new event which Messe München will stage every year in future during electronica and productronica. Another new aspect is that the discussion will be preceded by a keynote address by Dr. Ram Charan, one of the world's leading management and business consultants. Finally, Messe München has also succeeded for the first time in acquiring the services of the CEOs of six international companies for the podium discussion.

The discussion between the six captains of industry on the topic of "Innovations as driving force for surviving the current crisis" promises to be exciting. The participants in the podium discussion will be:

* Dr. Ulrich Bez, Chairman and CEO of Aston Martin Lagonda Limited
* Dr. Ram Charan, Advisor, Speaker and CEO Coach and Director of Austin Industries and The Six Sigma Academy
* Joe Donahue, President Global Automotive Division of Tyco Electronics Ltd.
* Günter Lauber, CEO of Siemens Electronic Assembly Systems GmbH & Co. KG
* Andre Papoular, CEO of Assembléon B.V.
* Dr. Sehat Sutardja, Chairman, President and CEO of Marvell Semiconductor, Inc.

The discussions will be chaired by Dr. Jürgen Gromer, a member of the Supervisory Board and former President of Tyco Electronics. Dr. Charan will also examine the above-mentioned topic during his keynote speech and describe the importance of innovations in relation to the current economic crisis.

Klaus Dittrich, Managing Director of Messe München, explains why no visitor can afford to miss the CEO Round Table during productronica 2009: "The podium discussion will have an excellent line-up. That's because we have managed for the first time to organize a genuine CEO Round Table during
productronica. All the participants in this year's podium discussion are the most senior representatives of their companies. productronica will therefore clearly strengthen its position as the world's leading event for the electronics production industry."

The munich electronics summit will be held annually in future, i.e. alternating between the world's leading trade fairs productronica and electronica.
