In the words of Dr. John W. Mitchell, President & CEO, IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries: “The show has long been recognized within the industry as the ideal platform for sourcing. The profusion of new offerings makes attendance at the HKPCA & IPC Show the most convenient way for industry participants to keep up with the latest up-to-the-minute developments and technologies which are transforming the future of PCB manufacturing.”

Hong Kong Pavilion – a new highlight of the show

Also new to this year’s show is the Hong Kong Pavilion. Presented with co-organizers the Hong Kong Productivity Council, the Hong Kong Pavilion comprises 100 sq.m. of common area surrounded by PCB manufacturers’ booths. The common area will be partitioned into separate regions showing PCB or semiconductor products and technology in four different expanding product categories: communication, computers, consumer electronics and the automotive sector.

Mr. Canice Chung, Chairman of the Hong Kong Printed Circuit Association, remarked: “We are delighted that the new Hong Kong Pavilion will demonstrate our commitment to the highest standards of PCB manufacturing in these growth sectors – not only outstanding manufacturing technique with high value-added, but an international perspective complemented by a strong sense of social responsibility. I am confident the Pavilion will add even more value to what is already recognized as the industry’s leading annual event.”

I’m sure it’s just me being hyperaware, but I can’t shake it: Mars is where it’s at right now. Is it just me, or do you get the same feeling from the news?

There’s SpaceX’s StarShip, rapid-prototyping its way into a manned flight to Mars. And NASA’s whole “return to the Moon” project is simply a shakedown for the U.S. government contractors’ Mars flight hardware, too.
