NBG’s Upcoming Conference & Event Schedule


It’s officially ‘Event Season,’ and we’d like to share some details about four upcoming events that we’ll be attending in person between the beginning of May and the end of June. Of course, no company or person exists in isolation, and we’re proud to be a part of an industry and community, so please say hello if you’re attending on any of the following occasions.


Our upcoming conference & event schedule begins with the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), the industry’s largest equipment exhibition, between the 2nd and 5th of May. It provides excellent opportunities for the global sharing of technology, expertise, products, and best practices. In addition, the conference brings together industry leaders, investors, buyers, and entrepreneurs to develop business partnerships and learn about the latest advances in the offshore sector. 

This year, the NBG team of experts consists of Frank Hieden, Richard Groffie, Sascha Trummer, and Obaydh Salameh, and they will be introducing SonoSens to the attendees, the key features of which you can see in the video below: 

SonoSens has set new standards in acoustic sensing. The outer polymer layer provides advanced mechanical protection and guarantees the best possible acoustic transmission. The fibers are in contact with the steel tube the entire cable length, allowing direct coupling for the best acoustic signal. And perforations enhance the acoustic performance by 40% without compromising the overall mechanical strength of the cable. 

We had a fantastic time at last year’s OTC Conference, and we’re looking forward to next week already. If you’re attending too, you’ll find us at booth #3769. 


The FTTH Conference 2022 is the world’s largest fiber summit, and it’s held in our very own capital, Vienna. The conference takes place between the 23rd and 25th of May. It consists of 20 expert workshops, 19 conference panel sessions, and 6 keynote speeches “offering insights from leading policymakers, business leaders, technology experts and investors in the telecoms and digital communications sector.” 

We intend to showcase a broad selection of our products and capabilities at the conference, from our customizable FIMTs, Connectivity and FTTx Services, our high-quality Optical Fiber, and Sensing Technologies. For more information on our offerings, please contact one of our experts and speak to us directly. On the other hand, see us at the event. We will be happy to meet in person. 


IABSE takes place just a couple of days after FTTH, between the 25th and 27th of May. Fortunately, we don’t have too far to travel to Prague for the conference, and we are looking forward to the event. 

Yaojun Ge, President of IABSE, shared the following comment about the event. “The Symposium will present and discuss the latest development of bridge and structural engineering with special respect to the challenges for bridges and structures. It will be an excellent chance for structural engineers involved in design, academe, construction, regulation and renewal to meet IABSE Members and discover their work.” 

We look forward to sharing our Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) capabilities at IABSE. We provide a range of fiber optic monitoring solutions for application experts and system integrators and constantly further innovation at our in-house R&D and testing center.


Between the 20th and 24th of June, WIRE in Düsseldorf will be the fourth and final (for now) addition to our upcoming conference & event schedule. Every company taking part has the opportunity to show who they are at the world’s most important trade fair for the wire and cable industry. Meeting industry decision-makers and benefiting from the global network is an opportunity we look forward to. 

Victors at the event can experience the latest technologies, and state-of-the-art machines live in action; they can meet market leaders and challengers, newcomers and traditional groups in the industry, make valuable contacts, and even find new business partners. 

We specialize in producing FIMT solutions at our state-of-the-art facilities, and we look forward to presenting them at the exhibition.
