Reading time ( words)

We at IPC sincerely hope that you and your families are staying safe during this unprecedented global crisis. The effects of COVID-19 are creating new challenges as we adjust to sheltering in place. You can find current information on scheduled events as well as IPC’s response to the crisis on the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update page on IPC.org.

Because the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and employees is of utmost importance, some of IPC’s planned events for 2020 have been either postponed or transformed into virtual events.

The current updates are as follows:

  • High Reliability Forum, scheduled for May 2020, has been rescheduled for May 11-13, 2021.

  • Electronics Materials Forum, scheduled for June 2020, has been postponed. New date to be announced soon.

  • IPC/ITI Conference, scheduled for June 2020, will now be a virtual event. Date to be announced soon.
