Held every two years since its inception in 1988, EMV takes place at Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany and displays the next generation of technologies and advancements to a wide audience. Exhibitors organise product launches and buyers immerse themselves in the world of screen systems and shielding materials, control cabinet components, mechatronics and engineering. The product portfolio is divided into 12 categories:
- Lightning and overvoltage protection (surge & transients)
- EMC services
- EMC training and education
- Filters and filter components
- Cables and connectors
- Conductive materials
- Measurement and test engineering
- Source of Interference
The trade fair not only showcases cutting-edge products and services but also features a parallel conference where experts share specialised knowledge on current issues, emerging technologies, and the fundamentals of electromagnetic compatibility. This combination of exhibition and conference provides an ideal platform for product developers, users and researchers in the EMC industry to exchange knowledge and insights.
EMV has evolved over the years to become the preferred event for the EMC community in Europe, attracting professionals from industry as well as research. With a focus on “Creating a compatible future,” the trade fair and conference meets everyone’s needs.

Aside from the lectures and paper presentations, the conference also recognizes outstanding contributions through the Best Paper Award and the Young Engineer Award.
The Best Paper Award aims to acknowledge the most innovative contribution among submissions. The nomination process begins with the evaluation of submitted abstracts, and only those with full papers are considered for nomination. While the manuscript itself holds significant weight, the presentation of the research at the EMV conference also plays a crucial role in the final evaluation.
The Young Engineer Award recognizes the highest-quality contributions by young engineers who are no older than 35 years. This award serves as a platform to encourage and celebrate the work of emerging talents in the field of electromagnetic compatibility. Similar to the Best Paper Award, the nomination process considers the submitted abstracts and full papers, with emphasis on both the content and the presentation delivered at the conference.
The outstanding achievements in both categories will be revealed on the final day of the EMV event. The winners will be honoured with a prestigious trophy, a certificate of recognition and a monetary prize. The Best Paper Award recipient will receive a prize of 700 euros, while the Young Engineer Award winner will be awarded 500 euros.
