After EENA recently rescheduled its annual event, now International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) and Critical Communications World (CCW) have been rescheduled to a date later in the year.

MA Exhibitions, the organizer of the TCCA Critical Communications World series announced a new date for the CCW 2020 event. Initially the event would take place in mid June however as the health, safety and wellbeing of visitors, exhibitors, staff and speakers is the number one priority, MA Exhibitions in coordination with the TCCA have  decided to move Critical Communications World to 3-5 November 2020 at IFEMA, Madrid.

By moving the event to the new date, visitors will then still benefit from the insightful learning, new technology and invaluable networking opportunities that CCW has provided each year.

Earlier this week, event organizer Informa announced a new date for IWCE, the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE). IWCE is North America's premier critical communications event. The 2020 event will now take place on August 24-28, 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (South Halls 1-2) in Las Vegas, Nevada. ETA’s Education Forum will also be rescheduled to take place at this time.

Show director Stephanie McCall stated: "We are working thoroughly to provide you with as many details as possible and we truly appreciate your patience as we take our conscientious next steps. We would like to  thank everyone who helps to make IWCE possible and recognize that our event does not happen without your support. We appreciate the open discussions and encouragement.  The conversations we’ve had over the last several weeks have proven how lucky we all are to be part of this supportive, tight-knit industry.  As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when the community comes together and connects at IWCE events. "

With the postponement of these two events towards the second half of 2020, it looks like the second half of the year will become a very busy time for vendors, manufacturers and visitors of these events.

Other major critical communications events in this period are Comms Connect in mid November and PMRExpo in the last week of November.
