QUiCKFairs® Coiltech Italia 2020

Pordenone, September 23/24 2020

World Magnetic Conference

The World Magnetic Conference (WMC) takes place parallel to the exhibition Coiltech. It is brought to you by intense cooperation between the University of L' Aquila and QUiCKFairs, the organizer of Coiltech.


The WMC is an essential component of Coiltech, acting as a medium for critical information exchange that our visitors, as well as exhibitors, benefit from. That way, we foster discussions about technological progress as well as the transfer of knowledge and opinions.

The WMC is a unique opportunity to learn about the latest innovations in electric machines and windings. It is the largest conference of its kind in the field. In 2019, for example, 63 technical papers were presented here.
Admission to WMC 2020 is free for visitors and exhibitors at Coiltech 2020. As the organizer, we do not charge any fees for the presentations, because our only criterion is professional relevance. Under this motto, our lecturers also waive fees for a presentation.

Share innovation - A unique opportunity to keep up to date with the technical innovation

The World Magnetic Conference (WMC) enhances interaction and sharing of skills and knowledge among the academic world, industry, research centres, and associations.

At the WMC, you can divulge and spread your innovations, make yourself known within the community and start new partnerships.
