No Travel at All

With the cancellation of the in-person electronica and Semicon Europa, 2020 will end for me without a single business trip. Somehow, this feels strange - travel has been an important part of my job for the past few years. I have to adit that I do not miss the nights sitting in a hotel room alone, or the long days running around the halls heading from meeting to meeting and catching up on emails that came in over the day. And not to mention working on the next issue, which always needs to be done. Overall, working on the road is very demanding - I can remember that. But not one event in an entire year? That leaves me just a little sad and hoping for a better 2021. Business is still being carried out by people and the personal connection is often the foundation (excuse me, Zoom and Co…).

No Travel at All

With the cancellation of the in-person electronica and Semicon Europa, 2020 will end for me without a single business trip. Somehow, this feels strange - travel has been an important part of my job for the past few years. I have to adit that I do not miss the nights sitting in a hotel room alone, or the long days running around the halls heading from meeting to meeting and catching up on emails that came in over the day. And not to mention working on the next issue, which always needs to be done. Overall, working on the road is very demanding - I can remember that. But not one event in an entire year? That leaves me just a little sad and hoping for a better 2021. Business is still being carried out by people and the personal connection is often the foundation (excuse me, Zoom and Co…).

Anyway, it is what it is and we need to move on. Our digital event in December keeps us busy - we already have a good number of confirmed presenters. We are planning to split the presentations into blocks and have live discussions with the presenters after each block. As our audience is spread around the globe, we have decided to make the presentations available one day in advance to give everybody the opportunity to pick the topics of interest and also to prepare questions for the live Q&A session. This gives you the choice of either being prepared, or of reacting spontaneously to your opinions of the presentation. The program will soon be published on the website www.power-conference.com, and registration is open!

We still receive feedback from time to time that delivery of the magazine is being delayed. We have been working with a highly professional shipper for many years now and I am advised that delays are happening to all kinds of International publications. This may be caused by changes in transport procedures, changes in international transport and/or changes in delivery procedures in the destination country due to quarantine or other protective measures due to the pandemic. Again, I want to refer you to our digital version, which is available on our website. Let’s hope for a PCIM 2021 with all of this behind us. We are always carrying hundreds of copies to Nuremberg, even older ones, so PCIM 2021 could be a good opportunity to complete your printed collection.

Bodo’s magazine is delivered by postal service to all places in the world. It is the only magazine that spreads technical information on power electronics globally. We have EETech as a partner serving North America efficiently. If you are using any kind of tablet or smart phone, you will find all our content optimized for mobile devices on the updated website: www.bodospower.com. If you speak the language, or just want to have a look, don’t miss our Chinese version: www.bodospowerchina.com

My Green Power Tip for the Month:
There were a lot of infection hotspots in or around meat factories, and not only in Germany. In part because of this, the share of plant-based meat and diet alternatives is growing massively. Maybe now is the time to try it out.

Best regards
Holger
