Additional Value of Attending 

There’s more to eltec than its product offering, networking opportunities and access to knowledge. Organisers are committed to fostering the next generation of professionals and have dedicated a significant space to achieve this goal through the TechnoCamp initiative, which targets the ‘skilled workers of tomorrow. The camp runs parallel to the main trade fair and its doors are open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.. This specialised program offers budding talents a unique opportunity to explore new trends, innovative solutions and hands-on experiences. 

Structured by the electrical guild Nuremberg-Fürth, TechnoCamp is a hub of knowledge-sharing and practical learning. A highlight of the program is the series of safety seminars facilitated by the trade association for energy, textiles, electronics, and media products (ETEM). These seminars ensure that future professionals are well-versed in safety practices, a foundational aspect of any electrical work. 

The core of the TechnoCamp experience lies in its practical courses and interactive sessions. Here, trainees can directly engage with 15 exhibitors, delving into discussions and exploring the nuances of various technologies. But the true essence lies in the immersive hands-on activities. Trainees are invited to tackle a range of tasks that mirror real-world scenarios: 

  • Installing Gas and Watertight Building Entries
  • Wiring a Technical Center
  • Protective Measures in Electrical Installation
  • Lightning and Surge Protection
  • Troubleshooting RGBW LED Strips
  • Installation and Commissioning of Digital In-House Telephones
