IPC to Help Grow Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo, Contracted to Manage Event Beginning in 2021

Jun 07, 2020

To help add new benefits, attract more attendees, increase exhibitor participation and cultivate a higher level of training, education and engagement seminars for guests and participants, IPC has been selected to manage the Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo (EWPTE) in Milwaukee for the years 2021 to 2025.

EWPTE, held annually at the Wisconsin Center, is one of the leading shows for the electrical wire and cable processing industries. The past few years have drawn an expanded roster of exhibitors and visitors and the 2019 event saw close to 3,000 attendees from 40 states and 25 countries and nearly 200 exhibiting companies. Major automotive manufacturers such as Ford, Fiat Chrysler, and General Motors, plus notable international companies including Boeing, General Electric, Briggs & Stratton, and Harley-Davidson sent representatives to the two-day show to see the latest trends, technologies, and products shaping the future.

In addition to IPC providing logistical and marketing support, including exhibit and sponsorship sales, event promotion, exhibitor and attendee registration, hotel room contracting and additional general event administration, IPC will also develop a technical conference component to the event as well as host our summer committee meetings, IPC SummerCom in conjunction with the event.

“IPC’s affiliation with the Wiring Harness Manufacturer’s Association (WHMA), the only trade association exclusively representing the cable and wire harness manufacturing industry, will help grow EWPTE as a globally recognized tradeshow. IPC and WHMA look forward to working with Wisconsin Center staff and the EWPTE Advisory Committee to produce a world-class event for the wire processing industry,” said David Bergman, WHMA executive director and IPC vice president of standards and technology.

“IPC has a proven track record in tradeshow management. IPC’s annual flagship event, IPC APEX EXPO, is the largest event in North America for electronics manufacturing and draws attendees and exhibitors from around the world. We believe their expertise will help grow EWPTE as a globally recognized tradeshow,” said Marty Brooks, president and CEO of Wisconsin Center District.

The next Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo will be held May 12-13, 2021 at the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee. For more information on the Expo, contact Alicia Balonek, IPC senior director, tradeshows and events, at AliciaBalonek@ipc.org.


IPC (www.IPC.org) is a global industry association based in Bannockburn, Ill., dedicated to the competitive excellence and financial success of its 5,900 member-company sites which represent all facets of the electronics industry, including design, printed board manufacturing, electronics assembly and test. As a member-driven organization and leading source for industry standards, training, market research and public policy advocacy, IPC supports programs to meet the needs of an estimated $2 trillion global electronics industry. IPC maintains additional offices Washington, D.C.; Atlanta, Ga.; Miami, Fla.; Brussels, Belgium; Bangalore and New Delhi, India; Bangkok, Thailand; and Qingdao, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Suzhou and Beijing, China.


The Wisconsin Center District (WCD) is a government body created under Wisconsin State Statute in 1994 to fund, build and operate the Midwest Express Center (now Wisconsin Center) in downtown Milwaukee, and continue operating the existing venues now called the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena and Miller High Life Theatre.
