World Electronics Forum coming to Adelaide
The 2019 Annual Meeting of the World Electronics Forum (WEF) will be held in Adelaide from 4–6 December 2019, in conjunction with an international conference themed ‘Electronics — Enabling Our Future’. The meeting and related events will be hosted by Electronics Industry Development Adelaide (EIDA), the association of the 300 high-technology electronics design, manufacturing and support companies in Adelaide.
Annual meetings of WEF are held in a different global city — and usually on a different continent — each year, with the 2018 meeting having been held in Beijing and Hebei, China, and the only previous Australian meeting held in Canberra in 2003. The 2019 event was secured by EIDA Chairman Donald Kay with a presentation to the panel of international delegates at a WEF meeting held in Las Vegas in early January.
The 2019 meeting will be part of an International Electronics Conference featuring specialist streams in Space Technology, AgTech and WEF, with attendees set to learn about developments and trends from industry leaders from more than 20 advanced electronics technology countries. A concurrent electronics exhibition will showcase the diverse and specialist products and services of Adelaide and the wider Australian electronics industry.
The meeting serves as Adelaide’s chance to show the capability and versatility of the local electronics industry to world electronics industry leaders. Visits are planned to engage with Adelaide’s extensive innovation community as well as established Adelaide electronics firms and research institutions. A number of local cultural activities are also in the pipeline.
Sponsorship packages covering the conference, exhibition and other events will be available to EIDA members and supporters. To assist in the organisation or sponsorship of WEF 2019 and its concurrent events, or to apply for an early-bird ticket or exhibition space, register your interest by sending an email to email@example.com.
