Northbrook, Ill. -- IPC -- Association Connecting Electronics Industries and Hong Kong Printed Circuit Association (HKPCA) will co-produce the International Printed Circuit and Electronics Assembly Fair on September 17 through 19, 2003, at the Guangzhou International Convention Center in Guangzhou, China.
The inaugural event will serve both the printed circuit board (PCB) and electronics assembly industries.
HKPCA, which produced a successful exhibition in Dongguan, China, in 2002, and IPC, which has produced such world-class events as IPC Printed Circuits Expo and IPC SMEMA Council's APEX, will draw from their years of proven experience in trade show development to create an exhibition that is cost-effective, focused and fair for its exhibitors.
The International Printed Circuit and Electronics Assembly Fair has already gained the support of the U.S. and Chinese governments. IPC and the U.S. Department of Commerce will conduct an official trade mission to China and a visit to the conference and exhibition. Also, the Guangzhou government has assigned the Guangzhou Economic and Technology Development District Administrative Committee and the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Guangzhou Sub-Council to assist in the successful production of the show.
For the show, both organizations plan to collect world-class speakers for a dynamic technical conference that covers board design through manufacture and electronics assembly through test and produce a full schedule of half- and full-day educational courses specifically designed for local engineers and technical professionals.
In addition, IPC plans to draw true decision makers and leaders to the show by introducing standards development meetings for the first time at an electronics assembly show in China.
