Exceeding expectations

13.10.2023 - Review: Quantum Effects, 10–11 October 2023, Stuttgart, Germany

The Quantum Effects fair with the associated QBN Quantum Industry Summit had a successful premiere: 70 exhibitors and 2,132 participants attended the two-day event at Messe Stuttgart, over a fifth of guests came from abroad. “We were very satisfied with the première of Quantum Effects,” said Roland Bleinroth, president of Messe Stuttgart, and drew some extremely positive conclusions. “We reached precisely the right target group. Together with our partners we managed to network innovative ideas with those people who will use them. We were delighted with the broad support from politicians. This clearly illustrates the importance of the topic for Baden-Württemberg and its economy.”

In his welcoming address on the afternoon of the first day of the exhibition, Baden-Württemberg's Minister-President Winfried Kretschmann described what characterizes the quantum state of Baden-Württemberg. “For example, we have the necessary infrastructure with the IBM quantum computer in Ehningen together with the corresponding partnerships and networks. With the most powerful commercial quantum computer in Europe we can try out things without any great financial risk. The R&D departments in industry are tackling topics and entering into productive cooperation agreements. Start-ups are providing new approaches and our research is focusing both on principles and application-related topics. We want to further extend the leading position of Baden-Württemberg and make today's companies fit for the future quantum world.”

Bosch Quantum Sensing, hosting partner of Quantum Effects, presented, for example, the latest quantum sensor prototypes in a smartphone format. “Our participation in Quantum Effects was a great success! We were pleased with the large numbers of visitors on our stand and the great interest that was shown in our topics and exhibits. As the hosting partner, we were also delighted with the general response to the entire exhibition and the truly inspiring, first-class talk programme. We are also naturally looking forward to Quantum Effects 2024,” said Dr Katrin Kobe, CEO of Bosch Quantum Sensing.

The global Quantum Business Network (QBN), congress partner for Quantum Effects, concurrently staged the QBN Quantum Industry Summit, the international business and technology conference, for the first time in Stuttgart.

“It was fantastic to bring the growing international quantum industry together in order to discuss the latest developments and most urgent challenges of the expanding quantum industry. The QBN Summit attracted world market leaders, quantum experts, politicians and end users, thereby making an important contribution towards the promotion of international cooperation and strengthening of Europe's sovereignty in the global quantum sector,” said Johannes Verst, CEO of QBN.

The next Quantum Effects will be held at Messe Stuttgart on 8 and 9 October 2024 – concurrently with Vision and hy-fcell.
