ROSEMONT, IL-After 26 years, Assembly Technology Expo is branching out and going East!

At ATExpo 2005, held Sept. 27-29, exhibition organizer Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT) announced that it is launching a new Assembly Technology Expo China, to be held Aug. 29 through Sept. 1, 2006, at the Shenzhen Convention Center in Shenzhen, China.

Like ATExpo in the United States, which will take place Sept. 26-28 in 2006, ATExpo China will cover a wide range of technologies for assemblers from all backgrounds, including the automotive, electronics, aerospace and electrical appliance industries.

The event will be co-located with NEPCON South China and include a "quality pavilion." ASSEMBLY magazine, an official sponsor, will be publishing a special Chinese language edition, to be distributed before and during the show.
