The combined event will keep the current Canon trade show name, Electronics Midwest. It will also be co-located with four of Canon’s other manufacturing exhibitions: Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) MidwestPLASTEC MidwestDesign & Manufacturing Midwest; and Assembly Technology Expo. The events will attract over 1,500 exhibitors and 30,000 professional attendees in the three days at the Stephens Convention Center.

As part of the IPC trade show objective to “create a fair, focused and cost-effective event,” the Canon/IPC agreement includes special exhibit pricing for IPC member companies. Additionally, IPC will produce a technical conference, standards meetings and professional development courses to run concurrently with Electronics Midwest.
