productronica is a trade fair for electronics manufacturing that has been held in Munich every two years since 1975. It takes place at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in the borough of Riem.[1] productronica's conceptual sponsor is the Productronics Association of VDMA (German Engineering Federation),[2] and the fair is a key component in the network of electronics trade fairs organized by Messe München.

productronica takes place in mid-November during all uneven-numbered years, alternating each year with the trade fair electronica, and it occupies an average of ten exhibition halls. A series of technical conferences addressing the electronics industry is held in Munich at the same time as the fair.[3]


productronica – a spinoff of electronica, one of the electronics industry's largest trade fairs in the world – was established as an independent trade fair in 1975. Ever since, it has given the production sector of the electronics industry its own comprehensive platform. The fair focuses on the entire value chain in electronics production.[4]
