Aftger 39 years, the NEPCON show has been cancelled for 2008. This decision doesn’t affect the many other Reed shows around the world.

Although the electronics manufacturing industry has shrunk in the UK, the main reason would appear to be the very strong performance of National Electronics Week (NEW). I’m sad to see a show disappear, and it is unfortunate that NEW and NEPCON couldn’t both run, but am looking forward to the energised team at NEW delivering a great show later this year.
