The newly named International Electronics Circuit Exhibition, formerly known as the HKPCA Show, kicked off today in Shenzhen, China.
This is the largest trade show serving the south China region, with 3,537 booths from 621 exhibitors this year. The show—under the theme Converging Ideas, Steering Innovation, Navigating Industry—is organized by the Hong Kong Printed Circuit Association (HKPCA), in conjunction with a new partner this year, the China Printed Circuit Association (CPCA). This new collaboration aims to connect global industry leaders to spark great ideas and shape the industry’s development, while enhancing the capabilities of the China PCB industry.
The I-Connect007 China team is here covering the event as part of our Real Time with...International Electronics Circuit Exhibition program, sponsored by Ventec International. Please enjoy this slide show of the opening VIP reception and opening ceremony.

What goes down must also come up. This is not the idiom we’re used to hearing, but I’d like to apply it to IPC APEX EXPO 2023. After a few years of lower attendance numbers due to the COVID pandemic, 2023 ushered in a re-invigorated group of attendees, exhibitors, speakers, event contractors, and staff to the show floor and meeting rooms. IPC APEX EXPO 2023 was fueled by the possibilities of new advances in electronics manufacturing.
Christopher Bonsell, Chemcut
This year, I had the great opportunity to come to IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego as a contributing member in Chemcut’s booth. Being an exhibitor is always interesting because you never know what you will learn or who you will meet. Truly, it seems that every IPC APEX EXPO is an eye-opening experience. This was the second show I attended, and last year I was amazed to see how in-depth and interconnected the electronics industry is. Seeing how many different companies contribute to manufacturing today’s core technology never fails to impress me.
I-Connect007 Editorial Team
After you’ve exhibited at a trade show, then the work really begins. Where do you begin? How do you best capitalize on the leads and other contacts you’ve made? We asked Kiki Shimomae, sales and marketing coordinator for Taiyo, to discuss her pre- and post-show plans for a show like IPC APEX EXPO, and the importance of staying visible on social media.
