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.
I-Connect007 Editorial Team
During IPC APEX EXPO, the I-Connect007 team works very hard to bring you several great interviews that will keep you up to date on the latest industry activity. This year, we had Nolan Johnson, Andy Shaughnessy, Pete Starkey, and Happy Holden of I-Connect007 in front of the cameras. We also send out a very special thank you to our guest interviewers, who sat in the I-Connect007 show floor studio to conduct many interviews. The list includes Tara Dunn, Dick Crowe, Joe Fjelstad, Steve Williams, and Kelly Dack. Their contributions are greatly appreciated.
Happy Holden, I-Connect007
The attendance at this year’s IPC APEX EXPO seemed higher than I expected, so thank you all for making the necessary arrangements to attend. However, we sorely missed many of our foreign contributors and friends. One of my cherished reunions was with Pete Starkey, who fought through the red tape of government restrictions to make his way from England for the show. Both of us were able to help conduct interviews with many of the industry’s business and technical leaders. For that, I am grateful.
Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Like many of you, for the past few months, we’ve been busier than a farmer with two rattlesnakes and one shovel. As soon as we got home from IPC APEX EXPO 2022 we started work on our post-show publication, Real Time with… IPC APEX EXPO 2022 Show & Tell Magazine. Now in its fifth year, Show & Tell is the best—and most exhaustive—source of in-depth information about IPC APEX EXPO. We published Show & Tell this week, and the response from industry leaders has been off the charts. Show & Tell gives the reader a taste of what it was like to be at the show, from ribbon-cutting and keynotes through the last conference classes.
