VIRTUAL FAQ

Why will PCB WEST be a virtual event in 2020? After due consideration of many factors, including the health and safety of our attendees, speakers and exhibitors, as well as anticipated restrictions due to the Covid-19 virus, it has been determined it is simply neither feasible nor appropriate to hold PCB WEST 2020 as a live event in California in September 2020.

The mission of PCB WEST has always been to deliver information and serve our industry, and we have been doing so for over 25 years. The 2020 event will simply provide learning and networking opportunities for our community in a different format.  

What will the format be for WEST 2020? We are currently mapping out the virtual event to provide attendees an opportunity to attend technical sessions in both live and on-demand formats. In addition, the exhibit floor will be “open” for attendees to visit booths, view PDFs, watch videos and learn more about various industry suppliers, as well as interact live with exhibitors. Specific details will be announced within the next few weeks.
