LOS ANGELES – Nepcon East will take place in May 2009, one month later than this year's show, the event producers said today.
In announcing the new dates, Canon Communications said the shift came at the request of leading exhibitors that felt the show timing was too close to other industry events.
The show, one of the longest running electronics manufacturing events in the world, will take place at the Boston Convention Center.  
"I'm pleased that Canon was able to move Nepcon East to the late May time frame,” said Brian Duffey, president of Mydata Automation, one of the show’s largest exhibitors. “Nepcon East is a good show for us and the new timing will make participation possible for Mydata in 2009. It's great to see that Canon heard the industry concerns and moved proactively to make this happen." 
Nepcon East will co-locate with Design & Manufacturing New England and Assembly New England, giving it an estimated 375 exhibitors.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
