Back in April 2021, we reported that the Electronic Component Show (ECS) which had originally been meant to take place in 2020, had been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. So, we were delighted to hear the news from MMG Publishing that the ECS will be going ahead in 2022, taking place on Thursday 19th May at the Kassam stadium home of Oxford United football club.

Mark Leary, MMG’s publisher & founder said ”The interest for a one-day tabletop exhibition and educational seminar presentations is very positive from visitors and exhibitors alike. We have been searching for the ideal venue and location for the show and the Kassam stadium ticks all of the boxes for everyone. The exhibition area is spaced out more than usual with a 1-metre space between tabletop stands, and with a one-way system and more internal space, this will provide a safe environment for all.  The seminar programme will consist of educational presentations for design engineers and purchasing professionals and 55% of the exhibition tabletop’s have already been sold from exhibitors who originally booked into the 2020 event”.

The show will be open from 10am-3pm, and visitor numbers will be restricted to provide design engineers and purchasing professionals the opportunity to network with electronics manufacturers, distributors and service providers in a safe environment.

The return of exhibitions and trade events were inevitable, and it’s great to see shows such as ECS moving forward, and providing professionals and exhibitors with the opportunity to return to a ‘face to face’ format safely.
