CPCA, HKPCA Form International Electronic Circuits Exhibition

Reading time ( words)

During a press conference and signing ceremony on December 5, 2018, in Shenzhen, China, the CPCA and HKPCA announced their new partnership to combine their two independent trade show brands into one brand. This means the two events will merge, going by the name International Electronic Circuits Exhibition. 

With this announcement, we also learned IPC will not be connected to either show in any formal partnership capacity, but will continue to participate as a guest association.

The newly branded show will still take place twice a year, in Shenzhen in the fall, and in Shanghai in spring. While the IPC has been a partner with the HKPCA for many years, they stated this is the appropriate time to step away from this event as the two China-based associations join forces. IPC will still be very active in China and will be working with productronica China, starting with the upcoming spring 2019 event in Shanghai.

According to the IPC, this move will better represent their members in China. The IPC wishes the HKPCA and CPCA great success in their new partnership.

More than five months remain in 2019, but U.S. congressional leaders are already running out of time as they face a long list of must-pass bills before year’s end. Although some of these bills do not affect the electronics industry, some of them do, and the overall agenda does affect the opportunities and risks we face.
