You are invited to a fun evening of networking with industry friends and colleagues on Thursday, May 12 at the Irvine Marriott in Irvine, California. Come mix and mingle with members of every segment of the local electronics industry.
Hosted by Judy Warner of Zentech Manufacturing and Tara Dunn of Omni PCB, this is not another dry, boring industry event. Last year’s Geek-A-Palooza in Minneapolis drew over 300 attendees, so this year it’s expanding to Southern California. You will enjoy yourself!
The evening’s agenda:
- A presentation by John Coonrod of Rogers Corporation on insertion loss factors
- Appetizers, beverages, networking
- Connect with industry suppliers in a relaxed atmosphere
- Sponsor tables representing the entire supply chain
- Great music, raffles, and games
- STEM and young engineering students
Admission is $20 at the door. This is definitely NOT a boring night of tech talk. Come to Geek-A-Palooza and see for yourself! To register, click here. For more information, contact Tara Dunn by clicking here.
Early Bird registrants who sign up before April 25, 2016 will be entered to win $100 at the event.

Most Westerners know very little about Estonia. A former Soviet Bloc country, Estonia has come a long way since restoring its independence in 1991. Electronics companies are thriving in this tiny EU member country, and capital city Tallinn has been called “Silicon Valley on the Baltic Sea.” During productronica, I met with Arno Kolk, general manager of the Estonian Electronics Industries Association, and we discussed the explosion of new technology in this “Baltic Tiger” country?

The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) holds two shows each year; the first is in Anaheim in January, and the second in Nashville in July. The January show is huge, attracting 100,000 visitors during its four-day run. My friend and editor (and bass player) Dan Feinberg has discussed how difficult it was for him to cover the CES show in a few days, and I must echo that sentiment about NAMM. It is one gigantic show.
