Press release date: January 11, 2010

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, - Canon Communications LLC and IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries® have reached an agreement to jointly produce an electronics manufacturing conference and exhibition this year. Slated to be the largest event of its kind in the Midwest, Electronics Midwest will take place September 28-30, 2010, adjacent to O'Hare International Airport at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, Ill. The new event combines IPC's Midwest Conference & Exhibition, previously held in Schaumburg, and Canon's Electronics Midwest show, and is co-located with four other Canon manufacturing shows - Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) Midwest, Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Assembly Technology Expo, and PLASTEC Midwest. These co-located events will attract 1,500 exhibitors and 30,000 attendees. As part of Electronics Midwest, a technical conference, professional development courses, and standards development meetings will be produced by IPC to run concurrently with the exhibition. "We're extremely pleased to be a part of Electronics Midwest," said IPC President Denny McGuirk. "Although we're very distinct organizations, driven by different goals and with unique priorities, I am confident this new event will bring the synergies of the two organizations together to produce a strong Midwestern event for the conference attendees, exhibitors, and technical committee members." A key priority for IPC was to continue its trade show objective, "to create a fair, focused and cost-effective event." As a result, the collaboration agreement includes special exhibit pricing offered to IPC member companies. Charles McCurdy, CEO, Canon Communications, believes the new collaboration is a winner for both organizations and their audiences. "I believe Electronics Midwest will serve the electronics manufacturing industry well. Our two organizations bring their respective strengths - IPC as the premier global electronics trade association and Canon as the world's leading producer of advanced manufacturing trade events - to develop an unparalleled Midwest event for the electronics manufacturing industry."
