The 15th Electronic Circuits World Convention (ECWC15) is the most notable international PCB symposium held every three years in different cities around the world. In the last 40 years, members of the World Electronics Circuit Council (WECC) have taken turns to host this conference.

HKPCA is honored to host ECWC15 in 2020. The conferenceis scheduled to begin in Hong Kong on 30 November 2020 and conclude at the International Electronics Circuit Exhibition (Shenzhen)in South China on 2 December 2020.

The ECWC teams hope to provide a valuable platform to encourage learnings amongst peers and provide the latest on global PCB demand, PCB manufacturing processes as well as technologies to enable them to better cope with the changing market dynamics for trends such as 5G, autonomous driving, smart world and much more. It also aims to promote the domestic PCB industry and economic activities in every country and every region.

We welcome local and international papers and invite you to participate in this international event that occurs only every 3 years…network and share experiences with peers in the PCB and electronics manufacturing industry.
