REPORT TechBlick Berlin 2023


TechBlick - The Future of Electronics Reshaped

In a world where technology is advancing at a rapid pace, TechBlick was an event that wanted to show the way into the future of electronics. Held in Berlin from October 17-18, 2023, it brought together tech enthusiasts, industry leaders, and newcomers to explore

and potentially shape the ever-changing world of electronics.

A meeting of new ideas and innovations

TechBlick 2023 brought together many experts who were able to exchange ideas and

innovations in the field of electronics at the 2-day conference.

One participant said: “We have to rethink about the current technology and find new solutions for new products and new future trends.”

TechBlick featured a variety of panels and discussions on topics ranging from blockchain technology and autonomous driving to environmental technology and digital healthcare.

One of the participants spoke about his reasons for coming to TechBlick: “Looking to find interesting new technologies and create collaborations and new business opportunities. I think 3D printed electronics can potentially make the electronics industry more circular. Additive processes don’t create waste materials, and in theory, might be easier to reuse and recycle products made additively.”

Innovative start-ups and technology exhibition

TechBlick 2023 was also a place for promising start-ups to showcase their cutting-edge innovations. The exhibition area was a bustling gathering place where visitors could experience the latest gadgets, applications, and technologies first-hand. The focus was from the key topics of printed, flexible, sustainable, additive, hybrid, wearable, textile, 3D, structural and in-mold-electronics and advanced medical devices to automotive sector, there was something for every visitor.

What was missing at this trade event was expressed by one visitor: “I see progress is slow and if you look at here, you see very less automotive companies in this kind of show because they are ultimately the user of such technology.”

In his opinion, the automotive industry in particular needs new impetus because: “A car has now 20 to 30km of wire wiring inside, and if a car crashes, something happens. Those all needs to be recycled. There’s a massive amount, but if we are able to print the electronics within an automotive car, then the recycle becomes much more easier and not much energy is needed to recycle that.”

And another said: “We saw today nice concept to reduce the number of cables being used there or the number of microcontrollers. So you have one micro controller instead of tons of micro control. So there are a lot of rooms for improvement for sure.”

But in addition to the automotive industry, there are many other areas. This visitor also spoke about new possibilities and new ways in electronics: “So the how to reshape the industry, how to reshape the world is to try to focus on the low impact environmental impacts. And this is the future. So the future is new technologies to reduce everything so that the environment is protected as much as possible.”


TechBlick Berlin 2023 brought together several hundred experts, decision makers and newcomers to report on the future of electronics reshaped. It was not only a place for lectures and exhibitions. It was also an opportunity for attendees to network and exchange ideas. The evening events and networking opportunities helped to deepen the contacts between technology enthusiasts from different parts of the world. This cultural exchange is an important aspect of TechBlick, as it helps to break down the boundaries in the global technology community, according to one of the exhibitors. The organizers announced that more than 50% more trade visitors had participated in TechBlick compared to the previous year.

I was then able to interview a total of 33 persons, most of them knew what the term circular economy meant, although a few interviewees had difficulty putting it in their own words. The event was very international.
