In 2022, IPC celebrated a decade of successful support to India’s electronics manufacturing industry and launched a series of activities including member networking events and skill challenge competitions throughout India, culminating in the inaugural Integrated Electronics Manufacturing & Interconnections (IEMI) event in New Delhi and Bengaluru last August. Based on the success of last year’s event, IPC will once again play host to IEMI events in Chennai on August 1 and in Pune on August 3.
The event will bring together designers, manufacturers, traders, suppliers, service providers and technical experts to explore new business partnerships, gain technical knowledge and source products and services. IPC India has partnered with several in-country chambers of commerce and trade associations to arrange international delegate visits from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Middle East and Israel.
Event highlights include a welcome address from State Ministers, keynote addresses from industry leaders and experts, panel discussions, a vendor development program, business-to-business meetings with country delegates, skills challenge competition, standards development meetings, an exhibition, an awards ceremony and networking lunch. IEMI Chennai will focus on the aerospace and defense market sector and IEMI Pune will focus on the EV automotive sector.
Exhibiting companies include: JBC, HTL, Ray-Q, Indium, Mectronics, Advance Tech, Prodigy, Japan Unix, Zeiss, Vinrox, Signum, Static Systems, Miracle, Sumitron/Hakko, Nanotech, Biometric Cables and more.
“We are expecting 1,000+ visitors from India and an additional 10 countries to this year’s event,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “India is a dynamic market for the global manufacturing industry, and iEMI proves that. I am confident that IEMI 2023 will help attendees expand their business prospects and forge new strategic partnerships while there!”
“One of the major attractions of IEMI 2023 will be a Vendor Development Program/Sourcing Meet,” said Gaurab Majumdar, executive director of IPC India. “With the objective of promoting the growth and development of Indian SMEs by improving their market access, IPC is committed to working with Indian and global OEMs, to help them meet potential EMS and wire harness suppliers.”
