List of PCB Industry Events Affected by the COVID-19 Outbreak

The global COVID-19 (corona virus) epidemic has impacted businesses worldwide, irrespective of their service domains. The PCB (Printed Circuit Board) industry, like all, too has seen a global slowdown amid the outbreak of the virus which has now affected almost 198 countries.

And with global health bodies including the WHO recommending against large social gatherings, in order to minimize the risk of spreading the virus at a larger scale, major conferences, expositions as well as sporting events have been either cancelled or postponed. The PCB industry in itself has seen some major events being cancelled or postponed in the past months, the postponement of EDI CON China 2020 and cancellation of APEC 2020 to name a few. Other major events too, have now followed suit with government restrictions also being issued in different parts of the world.

We have thus compiled a list of all the major PCB events which have been either cancelled or have been postponed/rescheduled, this year:
