Seminars presented at Electrical Wire Processing Expo

Hartland, Wisconsin (March 23, 2009) . . . When faced with global competition, there is a greater need for manufacturing professionals to consult experts and network with their peers to learn about new solutions and efficient new products. In 2009 and beyond, the wire processing industry will have to compete more intensely than ever before to keep companies operating efficiently and profitably. The National Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo will conduct technical seminars that run concurrently with show hours, providing attendees with focused information that can positively impact their competitive edge.

Celebrating nine years as the nation’s largest dedicated wire processing event, the Expo features new products and services for electronic cable assemblies, cord sets, wiring harnesses and other products within the wire processing industry. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet more than 100 world-class suppliers and service companies in the wire and cable processing industry and discover best practice applications to solve wire-processing problems.

According to Show Manager Jay Partington, the seminars will be of interest to wire processing professionals. “The seminars are developed by top industry experts to address the pressing issues faced by manufacturing today,” says Partington. He adds that the seminars are free after admission to the Expo and are presented by authorities that are experts in their field. “Other shows charge for seminars of this quality,” he says.

Nearly a year of research and planning goes into the development of the seminar schedule to ensure that the topics are timely and of benefit to attendees. Certificates will be awarded to participants that complete a seminar. This Certificate of Completion is appropriate for sending to societies or associations that grant continuing education credits for their membership.

Exhibits at the Expo will be open to the public on Wednesday, May 20 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., and Thursday, May 21, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the Midwest Airlines Center, Milwaukee, Wis.

Registration at the door will be $15.00, good for both days of the show. Admission is free with an ad clipped from a trade magazine or newspaper, or with a pre-registration ticket provided by any one of the exhibitors. Free registration is also provided online at
