The fourth annual M-EXPO Wire Processing Technology Expo (M-EXPO) will be held in person September 27-29, 2022, in the El Paso, Texas–Juárez, Mexico region, one of the largest manufacturing centers in the world. M-EXPO, the first wire processing technology event held in this region, is produced by IPC and the Wiring Harness Manufacturers Association (WHMA), the trade association exclusively representing the cable and wire harness manufacturing industry including manufacturers, their suppliers, and customers.                           

Registration for M-EXPO is free and includes access to the exhibition featuring industry-leading suppliers, a networking welcome reception on Wednesday evening, and admittance to the technical conference sessions and professional development courses led by subject matter experts who will focus on cable and wire harness manufacturing.                     

In addition, for a nominal fee, M-EXPO offers a special three-day training course for wire harness assembly operators. Participants completing the course will earn a Qualified IPC Wire Harness Assembly Operator Certificate. Discounted rates for Wire Harness Assembly for Operators training will be available only at M-EXPO.          

“If you’re a decision-maker who designs, specifies, purchases, installs, sells, maintains, or manufactures electronic cable assemblies, wiring harnesses, and other related products, M-EXPO is the exhibition for you,” said David Bergman, WHMA executive director. “We look forward to an in-person event in one of the most vibrant manufacturing centers in the world. In Juárez alone, there are more than 300 maquiladoras representing over 300,000 manufacturing jobs in wire harness and related industries.”
