Last week’s PCB West show attendance rose 3% year-over-year, to nearly 2,000 attendees, according to UP Media Group. This marks the annual PCB industry trade show’s highest turnout since 2001.
PCB West took place September 13-15 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. Registration for the 25th annual show was up 6% from 2015 registrants, added UPMG. Overall, nearly 2,000 printed circuit board designers, fabricators and electronics assemblers, managers and suppliers attended the trade show. It was the seventh straight year that show registration and actual attendance figures have climbed.
Technical conference registration rose more than 20% year-over-year. Attendees gravitated toward sessions on resolving fundamentals and practical solutions to engineering and design problems. More than 24 designers underwent IPC certification during the conference as well.
The sold-out show floor featured more than 100 companies occupying 110 booths, and exhibitors were outwardly pleased about their leads from the consistently busy show.
PCB West 2017 is scheduled for September 12-14, 2017 at the same location. For more information, visit www.pcbwest.com.
