ETA® International and the International Wireless Communications Expo are excited to announce that ETA’s Education Forum at IWCE 2021 will take place September 27-30. ETA and IWCE will be hard at work in the next nine months to put together the co-located conferences to deliver in-person hands-on training leading to industry-recognized and vendor-neutral certification.
Greencastle, December 11, 2020: While watching the world evolve since March 2020 with hopes to reunite in-person for ETA International’s Education Forum at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) by March 2021, it’s apparent that the world isn’t quite ready for that just yet. Because of this, ETA and IWCE are eager to share the news that Education Forum at IWCE 2021 will take place September 27-30 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Many attendees and exhibitors use Education Forum at IWCE as a launching pad for the year to learn, get certified, strategize, and build relationships. So conference attendees who paid to attend the 2020 live event will automatically have access to attend the 2021 event in the Fall with a pass of equal value.* The availability to use these credits towards other digital opportunities will be announced in the near future.
Recognizing the importance of keeping the Education Forum and IWCE communities connected in the coming months, ETA will be working with IWCE and its content partner – IWCE’s Urgent Communications - to bring more opportunities to connect until meeting in person in September.
While 2020 may have been a disruptive year for the electronics and wireless communications industries on every level, ETA and IWCE has strong confidence in their collective ability to persevere, overcome and progress.
