Nearly 8,000 visitors attended the International Exhibition on SMT, Testing Technologies, Equipment and Supporting Industries for Electronics Manufacturing (NEPCON Vietnam 2019), held in Ha Noi from September 11 to 13.

The event attracted over 200 brands from more than 20 countries, and there were seven international pavilions and many onsite activities together with exclusive business matching programmes in the electronics sector for both global exhibitors and visitors.

Vu Trong Tai, general manager of Reed Tradex Vietnam, the organizer of the expo, said this year his company partnered with the USAIDs LINKSME Project to bring opportunities for businesses to meet and support the match-making between companies.

“NEPCON Viet Nam has become one of the leading events in the electronics industry, an unmissable event for thousands of investors who want to expand their business in Viet Nam.

“We are delighted that the exhibition can help Vietnamese businesses, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, participate in the global supply chain.”

Fumitaka Ohata, general manager of Kyoritsu Electric (Vietnam) Co., Ltd, a visitor to the show, said: “I visit NEPCON every year and so far this is the fourth time. NEPCON provides me opportunities to seek suppliers, connect with more enterprises in Viet Nam and widen my business networks.”

Another visitor, Nguyen Duc Quyet, deputy production manager, Canon Vietnam Co., Ltd, said: “I have attended the NEV five times. What makes this years exhibition different from the earlier ones is that it focuses on technology 4.0 with many up-to-date machines. My company has tied up with many brands here and we still want to find out more about new products.”

Jeffrey Lien, general manager of Jiaxiang Electronics Co., Ltd, said: “My company specialises in electronic equipment, and thats why I choose NEPCON to find and meet suppliers for my company.”

Many exhibitors expressed satisfaction about the show.

Takeshi Idenaga, general manager, sales and marketing, Shinmaywa Industries, Ltd, said: “This is the second time weve attended the exhibition. I think NEPCON is an effective expo for my company to advertise products to existing customers and seek new partners. We are considering taking part in NEPCON next year.”

Nguyen Van Vinh, area manager at Fuji Machine Vietnam Co., Ltd, said: “NEPCON 2019 in Hanoi has drawn more visitors than the previous one. Fuji has taken part in the expo for three year continuously. This year, we want to provide outstanding solutions for smart factories and have found new customers. Besides, we have new business relations and potential partners too.”

Leon Chen, vice general manager of Join Expert Machinery (Shen Zhen) Co., Ltd, said: “This is the first time our company is in NEPCON Vietnam. Our company specialises in PCB plating equipment. By coming to this show, we would also like to find more business opportunities to develop the company in Vietnam.”

The event also saw the IPC Hand Soldering Award being given away.

Philip S. Carmichael, president of IPC Asia, said: “I am extremely impressed by contestants in this year because of their higher skills. This competition is a good chance for me to know how the quality of Vietnamese employees has changed.”
