Registration is now open for Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo (EWPTE) an exclusive, free-of-charge* event for the electrical wire harness, wire, coil winding and cable processing industries, to be held at the Wisconsin Center May 16-18, 2023, in Milwaukee, Wis.

Produced by the Wiring Harness Manufacturer’s Association (WHMA) and IPC, EWPTE connects buyers with local, national, and international manufacturers and distributors, thus proving new business opportunities.

Not just an exhibition, EWPTE is a full-scale event featuring a slate of educational and career enhancement opportunities, including professional development courses and technical conference sessions. Subject matter experts will offer learning opportunities on calibration, cleanliness, rework, quality, failure analysis, troubleshooting, wire harness workforce training, and much more.

“Attendees at all career stages can come to EWPTE and leave inspired through PD courses, technical conference sessions, peer-to-peer networking opportunities on the show floor and during refreshment breaks, breakfast events with exhibitors, and an exciting keynote,” said Joe DeMan, WHMA Board Chair. “Our ultimate goal is for attendees take their ideas and innovations developed on-site and turn them into real-world solutions and business opportunities.”

EWPTE will also feature IPCSummerCom, IPC’s standards development committee meetings, to be held May 13-18. Three standards development task groups will meet to discuss wire harness related standards: 7-31f: IPC/WHMA-A-620 Task Group; 7-31fhv: IPC/WHMA-A-620 High-Voltage Cable Task Group and 7-31k/7-31h: Joint meeting of Wire Harness Design Task Group and IPC-HDBK-620 Handbook Task Group.
