One of the most disruptive technologies of the Internet age...

...the MP3 – originated in the region of Nuremberg.

The audio coding format emerged from the labs of the prestigious Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) and quickly became the world’s standard, ushering in a new era of digital music through MP3 players and paving the way for iPods, iTunes and music streaming. Fraunhofer IIS is highly regarded for its leading edge research and technology developments in audio, communications systems, energy management, IC design and design automation, imaging systems, medical technology, and more. Meeting planners can leverage Fraunhofer IIS’ experts, or those from universities such as Friedrich-Alexander-University, international businesses such as Siemens, and R&D organizations such as Medical Valley, to make their meetings a richer experience for both new and returning meeting attendees.
