Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo (EWPTE) 2021 Postponed

Reading time ( words)

The 2021 Electrical Wire Processing Expo (EWPTE) originally scheduled at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for May 11-13, 2021 has been postponed to May 10-12, 2022. As show managers of the 2021 EWPTE, WHMA/IPC and Wisconsin Center District staff met with the newly formed EWPTE exhibitor advisory board. The advisory board comprised of representatives from the following companies: Amphenol CTI, Anixter, Artos, Brady Corporation, Cesar-Scott, DIT-MCO, Dynalab Test Systems, Hellermann Tyton, IEWC, Komax, Molex, Schleuniger Inc., Southwire Company, TE Connectivity and Telsonic unanimously made the critical decision to postpone the event due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19.

“Because of the extensive face-to-face networking and hands-on educational opportunities that EWPTE offers, the advisory board felt it was just not feasible to transition the event to a virtual one,” said David Bergman, WHMA executive director. “The past few years have drawn an expanded roster of exhibitors and visitors and the 2019 event saw close to 3,000 attendees from 40 states and 25 countries and nearly 200 exhibiting companies. We want to provide the electrical wire harness, wire and cable processing industries the cutting-edge and comprehensive in-person event they have come to expect the last 20 years in a safe environment.”

“My staff and I support the unanimous recommendation from the advisory board to postpone the show to 2022,” said Wisconsin Center District President and CEO Marty Brooks. “National and international participation for both exhibitors and attendees is what makes this show so comprehensive, so holding the event before international travel is reliable and safe would short sighted. I can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the Wisconsin Center in 2022.”

Information regarding the 2022 event will be available soon; visit www.electricalwireshow.com.

A Show Full of Opportunities

Looking back to my notes from IPC APEX 2020, I noticed one of my comments: There were so many interesting sessions that I often found myself in the position of choosing between several that I wanted to attend in the same timeslot. This year was not any different in that regard. I am purposely glossing over the fact that I, like many of my friends, missed the camaraderie and opportunity to catch up in person while attending these technical sessions, and I look forward to being able to do that next year.
