Tarsus Group partners with Hong Kong Printed Circuit Association (HKPCA) for IECES Show from 2022
29 September 2021: Tarsus Group has entered into a partnership with Hong Kong Printed Circuit Association (HKPCA) to be a supporting organisation and together with other organisers, jointly produce the world’s leading printed circuit board event, the International Electronics Circuit Exhibition Shenzhen (The IECES Show) from 2022 onwards.
The IECES Show was first launched as South China International Printed Circuit & Equipment Fair in 2002 and is now one of the leading platforms for the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and Electronics Assembly (EA) industries. 2021 edition will see the exhibition move to a new location, the Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center, where it will take place under the theme of ‘5G Connecting the World’.
The 2020 event was a big success, attracting some 431 exhibitors covering an area of 52,500 sq. mtrs. and clocking over 48,000 visits in attendance; the impressive turnout came in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic and highlighted the IECES Show’s importance to the industry.
The global market for PCBs is projected to reach US$78.7bn by 2024 as demand remains strong mainly due to the roll-out of 5G, as well as the increasing use of PCBs in electrical equipment and connected vehicles.
Tarsus says attracting greater numbers of international attendees to the show, particularly in the wake of the pandemic as borders reopen, will be a key priority for the group and its event partners. Tarsus will begin to implement the internationalisation strategy this year by co-locating the 2021 edition of its Touch China event – which was recently rebranded as Semi-e – with The IECES Show.
