Accelerating Talents—The best for your company

In this industry, the shortage of skilled workers is regarded as the biggest brake on the economy. With Accelerating Talents, productronica offers you a platform to get students, graduates and young professionals enthusiastic about your company.

Hackathon@productronica—a real-time challenge

Accelerating Talents zoom

The Hackathon will celebrate its premiere at this year’s productronica. At a Hackathon, a group of hackers completes a 48-hour “marathon” working on concrete problems (challenges). The cross-disciplinary teams develop approaches that provide food for thought and innovative solutions. “Hackers” in our case are not only computer specialists, but also young professionals, students and start-ups from the fields of electrical engineering, automation, mechanical engineering and industrial engineering.

As an exhibitor, you can become a sponsor of the Hackathon and submit a real challenge: That way, you benefit from the solution approaches on the one hand and get to know potential employees “in action” on the other.

The Hackathon@productronica will take place on November 13 and 14, 2019 at the Accelerating Talents area in Hall B2.

productronica Fast Forward—the start-up platform

It is first and foremost start-ups and new players that are increasingly attracting attention in the industry and providing innovative stimuli. Together with Elektor, productronica offers you a platform to get to know these start-ups. Be it to support them or to cooperate in a targeted way—there is a lot of potential here.

Fast Forward offers a solution for a well-known dilemma: On the one hand, it is not easy for innovators to gain a foothold in an agile business, to sustainably establish their development and expand it in line with the market. On the other hand, companies willing to support or interested in cooperation struggle to recognize what is only a short-term trend and what is a promising development performance.

Use the services of Fast Forward to also attract the best partners for your company in the area of innovation. Find out more about the Fast Forward sponsoring packages here.

Talent Gateway—extraordinary recruiting

Talent Gateway is a recruiting platform that brings together you as an exhibitor with trade visitors, high potentials and graduates in a special way: All candidates pass through an exercise course to demonstrate where their special abilities lie. The course modules range from Escape Truck and QR Code Rally to Tech-Slam on stage or individual conversations in the Career Cafe.

As a sponsor, you can introduce your special topics by discussing questions in the modules, by giving a specialist lecture on stage or during a one-on-one conversation at the Career Café. Get to know potential employees in practice-oriented exceptional situations—and decide whether you have a future together.
