The Electronics Manufacturing Korea (EMK) Secretariat want to express our concern for everyone impacted by COVID

 

In the context of the ongoing COVID impacts and extended Stage 4 restrictions in place, we have made the difficult but appropriate decision to postpone Electronics Manufacturing Korea (EMK), which was due to run from 28 – 30 July 2021 at COEX. 

 

While we were optimistic that EMK would run as planned, after further consultation with our exhibitors, visitors, and partners, we have concluded that the best option is to focus instead on delivering a successful event in 2022.  

 

EMK will now be held from 13 – 15 April 2022 at COEX.

 

We have taken this decision in the best interests of our community.  We appreciate that this is disappointing news, however, the health and safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority and we remain guided by the expert advice of the government and public health authorities. 

 

While we are disappointed that we are unable to meet face-to-face for EMK 2021, we remain committed to revitalising the electronics manufacturing industry and will help all our customers to prepare for a successful event in 2022.  

 

Thank you for your understanding.

We at EMK (Electronics Manufacturing Korea) want to express our concern for everyone impacted by coronavirus. Like all of you, we have carefully monitored the global health crisis related to COVID-19.

Our top priority is the health and safety of everyone involved in EMK – employees, customers and exhibitors.

Following the expert advice of the Korean government and public health authorities regarding large-scale gatherings and social distancing, we have decided to postpone EMK 2020, which was due to be held on May 27-29, 2020.

We received valuable contributions from many customers and key stakeholders about their concerns.  Along with the travel restrictions globally, we concluded that postponement is the best course of action to enable us to deliver a high-quality event, and to allow our customers to prepare and gain maximum value for the event in 2021. 

We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause however we have made this decision based on all the advice and guidelines available and with the health and safety of all our participants as our number one priority.

We will be in contact with regards to the 2021 event as soon as we are able.
