Industry events offer a great opportunity for B2B companies. It is a perfect opportunity to network, establish partnerships, and discover different products, tools, technologies, and software that can help skyrocket your business. NEPCON Thailand offered all of these benefits and was definitely worth the while.
What is NEPCON Thailand?
NEPCON Thailand is the ASEAN’s #1 exhibition on Assembly, Measurement and Testing Technologies for Electronics Manufacturing. It is a yearly event that the Electrical and Electronics Industry is always looking forward to as different companies showcase their products, and everyone can gain knowledge and see opportunities for their business’ growth. As it is attended by various organizations, it is also a great opportunity to meet business partners.
This year’s event is the 18th edition of the NEPCON series and it was attended by a total of 8,717 participants. The 4-day event started on Wed, Jun 20, 2018, 10:00 AM – Sat, Jun 23, 2018, 6:00 PM.
In case you missed it, here’s a recap of the fun and exciting NEPCON series.
Day 1, Spark Your Electronics Productivity
The fast-paced technological advancements require every business to adapt with the changes or else, they will be left behind. It may be challenging to know how to use a modern facility or software but among the major benefits are the increase in productivity and keeping the business competitive.
Mr. Ronnie Wong, COO of the Association of Electronic Industries in Singapore (AEIS), summed up the importance of this:
“In the not too distant future, Industry 4.0 will be at work where integrated computing, networking and physical process are revolutionizing manufacturing. The outlook cannot be better as the global consumer electronics market is expected to grow at an average of 15% annually from 2016-2026. For Singapore firms, Thailand is an ideal destination due to resilient economy, investment incentives from the government and also as a strategic gateway to the CLMV markets.”
Day 2, Secure Your Business Without Limit
Business security is one of the most important aspects that every business owner should consider. In the NEPCON Thailand 2018, there are a lot of exhibitors that offer different products and tools that provide solutions to those who are looking to secure their businesses.
Day 3, Shortcut to Advanced Electronic Success
Since NEPCON Thailand 2018 gathered more exhibitors this year, they were able to bridge the gap between business-to-business (B2B) companies. They can find everything they are looking for in one event — business partners, suppliers, innovative products, new technologies, quality leads, etc.
The visitors are quite impressed to find different companies and new products in the event.
Day 4, Forces of 4.0 Technologies Await Your Discovery
Today, a lot of businesses find surprising ways to disrupt the market. As the Industry 4.0 is happening, we should expect to see the rise of “smart factories.” Automation of machines and different devices will not be a new thing.
The electronics industry plays a big role in this advancement.
