It's almost here! We're only a few weeks away from embedded world 2017, where over 930 exhibitors and numerous speakers from 42 countries will be presenting the entire spectrum – ranging from construction elements through modules and full systems, operating systems, hard and software to services  – to more than 30,000 trade visitors and approximately 1,700 conference participants from 73 countries. And yes, if you haven't caught on already, that includes us!


In case you missed it, we've already gone ahead and given you a first glance at some of the cool products and latest innovations we'll be displaying in Hall 3, Stand 221. And of course, for those of you who would prefer to see it for yourself, there's still time to register for FREE TICKETS courtesy of element14.



But for those of you who can't make it in person, and who want to what it's really like to attend, we wanted to do something more. And what better way than to send one of our very own community members?


We're excited to announce that we'll be sending Top Member shabaz to embedded world to experience the conference firsthand.  We'll be covering the cost of his airfare, hotel room, conference pass, and yes, even his meals (we all know it's hard to have fun on an empty stomach). We're wanted to make sure Shabaz has the all the time and energy he needs to get the most out of this awesome opportunity, and of course, the chance to share it with all of you. Shabaz will be blogging about his experience, as well as taking pictures directly from the embedded world conference floor. You'll be able to see all of his amazing content right here on the element14 community, and on the official element14 Twitter account.


If you happen to be attending embedded world on your own, be sure to give shabaz a shout-out in the comment section below and let him know you'll also be there. We'll continue to update this space with more information about the show in the days to come. See you soon in Nuremberg!
