26 Sep 2022

PCIM Asia will now be held from 29 – 31 August 2023 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre in view of current circumstances relating to the pandemic in China. Although the PCIM Asia exhibition will be moved to next year, the PCIM Asia Conference 2022 will keep its schedule this autumn from 26 – 27 October in Shanghai.

“To actively support the government’s efforts towards pandemic mitigation, we have decided to move the fair to next summer after meticulously examining the ongoing situation in China,” explains Mr Louis Leung, Deputy General Manager of Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd. “We would like to express our gratitude to those in the industry for their understanding and support, and look forward to welcoming key players back next year to reconnect and establish stronger business cooperation within the power electronics industry.”

Despite the postponement, industry players will continue to keep abreast of the latest trends and developments this year. “Within the preventive guidance set by the local government, we are able to move forward with PCIM Asia Conference in the original dates this October in Shanghai. While details of the new venue will be announced shortly, we trust the hybrid conference will satisfy the power electronics community’s enthusiasm towards the event and meet the demand for in-person business encounters.”

PCIM Asia is jointly organised by Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd and Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH. To find out more about PCIM Asia, please visit or email
