Exhibitors Gear Up for Virtual PCB 2009
Despite economy, exhibitors signing on for industry’s MORE cost-effective trade show
Among the other companies exhibiting to date are
Bare Board Group,
Miyachi Unitek and
Valor Computerized Systems.
Virtual PCB, which drew 2,400 qualified registrants to its premiere, offers complete, real-time tracking of attendees, product demos and a sterling technical conference supplemented by the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) and featuring a host of well-known experts.
"Despite the economy, or perhaps because of it, sophisticated companies are looking for additional high-impact ways of reaching the market. Over-sized, over-priced and over-scaled trade shows are being abandoned in favor of more targeted, economical and higher impact avenues," according to Circuits Assembly Editor-in-Chief Mike Buetow. "Be it Web or trade show marketing, there simply is no better ROI than Virtual PCB."
A fully interactive, Web-based event,
Virtual PCB incorporates all the critical features of a live event while allowing PCB design, fabrication and assembly equipment and materials buyers and sellers to interact online. Virtual PCB is supported by a proven software platform and will be accessible on-demand for two months following the two-day live event.
