Elektro 2021
29th International Exhibition for Electrical Equipment, Lighting Engineering and Building Automation
710 June 2021

Elektro is a main electrical trade show in Russia and the CIS countries. It is named Russias best exhibition in all nominations in the Electrical Engineering category (see the Russian National Exhibition Rating). Elektro attracts the attention of professionals and industry experts, and has a unique target audience. According to social surveys, 93% of the visitors generate new business contacts, 88% come to the show to find new suppliers for purchasing, and 60% attend it regularly. 

This project with almost half a century of history has survived the various stages of our society's transformation. Last year, due to the pandemic, Electro had to be cancelled. Of course, every experience is useful but going online only justifies itself under forced circumstances. Communication is vital for our lives, and it needs to be face to face. 

This year, despite the worldwide pandemic related restrictions, the 2021 Elektro edition managed to bring together an impressive group of exhibitors and turned out to be a very interesting event.

Show highlights 

Elektro has changed over the past year. In particular, some exhibitors who skipped the previous editions have returned. There are also newcomers: Avtopribor, Absolute Technology, Rexant, ETK Engard, KM-Profil, Universalnye Sistemy, Morsvyazavtomatica, Sofrino Metalworking Plant, and many others. 

This year, there are more companies from Turkey, including EAE Elektrik, TP Elektrik, Sem Transformator, Enel Enerji, KLS Plast, and ZM Group. The Turkey pavilion occupies about 250 sq m. The Economy Ministry of the Slovak Republic arranges a group stand with eight companies. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the participation of some foreign companies has been a very complicated issue. Not all will be able to attend the exhibition. Their products will be showcased by their Russian partners.

That is why, this year's Elektro aims to demonstrate the real state and potential of the Russian electrical market.
