SMTAI 2018 Closes on a High Note


Reading time ( words)

SMTA International 2018, which took place earlier this week in Rosemont, Illinois, is now in the history books. This multi-day event, held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, was packed with keynotes, conferences, lively discussions, committee meetings and a two-day exhibition.

Also, the IPC Fall Standards Development Committee meetings are held in conjunction with the SMTAI, October 13-19, 2018. As an added bonus, visitors could enjoy the co-located Sensors Midwest exhibition, an event focused on sensors and industrial IoT applications.

The SMTAI exhibition hall was loaded with about 170 companies from all parts of the world, along with plenty of the latest equipment on display for attendees to evaluate.

From the start of the first day to the exhibition’s opening night off-site party, this show provided an excellent opportunity to meet up with old friends, make new ones, network, relax and share.
As the show wound down to its closing hours, guests were treated to a beer-tasting and reception, allowing attendees to share their success stories and say goodbye to their old and new friends.

It is not an easy task to deliver a multi-day event like this; we thank the SMTA team and volunteers for working very hard on every detail to make this show a great experience for all to enjoy. From the technical sessions to the closing reception, there is something valuable for all who attend.
