SHANGHAI — Reed Exhibitions has postponed Nepcon China 2020 tentatively to June 17-19.
The event was originally scheduled for Apr. 22-24 but has been rescheduled because of the coronavirus outbreak.
“China has become the world electronics manufacturing hub after more than 30 years of development,” said Thomas Huang, senior vice president of Reed Exhibitions Greater China. “EMS factories in China like Foxconn not only import world-class SMT equipment from abroad, but also purchase from local equipment suppliers. Today, China equipment suppliers produce pick-and-place, soldering and inspection machines as well as high-quality robotic equipment. We know the effects of Coronavirus are far-reaching, but we are confident that China will quickly recover and continue operations.”
