The RF & Hyper trade show has been a constant on the European exhibition calendar for many years now, but the 34th in the series, which was held recently, was particularly significant. For the very first time it joined four other trade shows that are leaders in their respective fields at the Paris-Nord Villepinte exhibition center.

All housed under one roof, RF & Hyper Europe joined Forum de l’Electronique, Mesurexpo, Opto and the Vision-Show to make one large exhibition with separate designated floor areas. RF & Hyper Europe comprised 151 exhibitors, along with a designated Antennae Area and a Recruitment Area that was located at the entrance to the show.

On the exhibition floor, mainstays of the industry including test and measurement equipment, components, subassemblies, antennas and software manufacturers were prominent. Its incorporation into a large exhibition did offer a different feel to the show, but RF & Hyper still remained essentially an exhibition with a French core and focus that widens to embrace the rest of Europe and the global market.
