Over 583 exhibitors have displayed the latest and most creative industry offerings at more than 3032 booths, taking up 60000 sq. m. of floor area and attracting a record of ??? visits over the 3-day show period, which broke the previous record to be the highest ever.

The four halls of the Show were divided into seven thematic zones including PCB, equipment, electronic assembly, smart automation, green, material and Janpan-Korea pavilions, with exhibits covering the whole supply chain of the PCB & EA industry. With smart device development and demand for more functions and low power consumption, together with internet of things market needs, the thinner, lighter, denser PCB are being developed rapidly as well. In the past two years, more and more IC processes have been applied to PCB manufacturing, and PCBs are gradually developed towards the direction of substrates, which have led to the introduction of innovative solutions for materials and equipment.
