Sensors Expo Moves to Heart of Silicon Valley; Featuring Technical Expertise & Real World Applications of the Latest Sensing Technologies


Registration opens for longest running event in the industry

Newton, MA – March 16, 2016 – For more than three decades, Sensors Expo & Conference has established itself as the nation's leading event focusing exclusively on sensors and sensor-integrated systems. New this year, the longest running event in the industry will be hosted in San Jose, California, offering attendees easy access to Silicon Valley – the hub of technology innovation in the United States. This move comes after a successful rotation to the West Coast in 2015. The three day event will take place June 21-23rd at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, CA. Pre-Conference Symposia will be held on Tuesday, June 21, and the Main Conference and Exhibit Floor will be open Wednesday, June 22 through Thursday, June 23.

As the market for sensors and related technologies continues to grow, Sensors Expo & Conference provides the only platform in the industry exclusively dedicated to showcasing the latest in sensors and sensor-integrated systems.  In 2015, more than 5,000 attendees from over 40 countries gathered together to share best practices, exchange ideas and make invaluable industry connections to drive business forward. According to John Kerns of Federal Express Corp., “I found Sensors Expo and Conference to be a valuable resource to identify emerging and available technologies and a means to enhance my personal knowledge with respect to various types of sensors, test methodology and much more.” In fact, 94% of attendees reported they come to Sensors to purchase new technologies for current projects, and rely on the event to learn about the newest innovation in sensing technologies that are driving tomorrow’s solutions.

Named to Trade Show Executive’s Fastest 50 for the third consecutive year, the Sensors Conference will feature over 55+ Technical Sessions covering nine different Tracks, five Pre-Conference Symposia, and two visionary Keynote Presentations.  

New this year, the event will feature:

  • Expanded 2-day IoT Track
  • Expanded Flexibles & Wearables Track
  • Sensors & Embedded Systems Design Track
  • Embedded Security Pre-Conference Symposia
  • Flexible & Wearables Pre-Conference Symposia
  • Hands-on Workshops and Sessions
  • University & Non-Profit Program
  • Startup Venture Forum & Pavilion

Roger Grace of Roger Grace & Associates notes, “Sensors Expo continues to be the “only game in town” to obtain relevant information on sensors and the components that go into sensor-based systems. Sensors 2015 was my 28th visit.”


In 2015, Sensors welcomed nearly 250 exhibitors to the event and 90% reported that Sensors met or exceeded their expectations. To date, more than 200 companies are scheduled to exhibit at the 2016 event including Platinum Sponsors Arrow, B-Scada, Cypress Semiconductor, and Digi-Key Electronics. In addition to traditional exhibit space, Sensors will offer new and expanded exhibit and sponsorship opportunities, including Technology Pavilions, New Product Showcases, Startup Opportunities, Branding Sponsorships, and more. Exhibitor sign up is available by contacting Cal Groton or Joe Zuccerella.

“Unlike anything else in the industry, Sensors offers highly technical expertise combined with a focus on real-world applications of sensors – from applications in fitness with wearable sensors, to automotive with safe-driving sensors, to medical with fabric sensors,” said Mat Dirjish, Executive Editor, Sensors Magazine. “We have a proven track record of presenting relevant content, featuring today’s most influential industry thought leaders dedicated to addressing the entire sensor ecosystem. Sensors is the de facto event for any engineer looking to harness the power of innovation to drive the future of sensing technology.”
