UP Media Group Announces 15% Spike in PCB West Conference Registration

ATLANTA, GA – OCTOBER 10, 2019 – Conference attendance for PCB West 2019 was up 15% year-over-year, UP Media Group Inc. announced today. Show organizers said the surge was tied to the now four-day conference coupled with steady demand for the longer-form training sessions.

PCB West, the largest conference and exhibition for printed circuit board design, fabrication and assembly in the Silicon Valley, featured 59 presentations, a third of which were at least 3.5 hours in length.

“It started with the record number of abstracts submitted, which gave us the opportunity to be more selective than ever,” said Mike Buetow, conference chairman. “Conference speakers were quick to notice the increase in attendance in their presentations.”

Comments from attendees were glowing, including: “I chose to come to PCB West to learn best design practices and I was not disappointed,” and “Such good information. I will be spending the next few weeks digesting what was taught.”

The free sessions, which are not included in the conference registration, were also extremely popular, he added.

The one-day trade exhibition sold out all 110 booths for the eighth consecutive year, UPMG said. Exhibitors reported high lead counts and quality attendees. “We exhibit at multiple trade shows but by far PCB West is one of the best!” said Eriko Yamato, FaradFlex marketing manager, Oak-Mitsui Technologies. Added Joe Clark, cofounder, DownStream Technologies: “Great show. Many existing customers here and new prospects too.”

PCB West 2020 will be held September 8-11 in Santa Clara, CA. The event includes a four-day technical conference and one-day exhibition, to be held at the Santa Clara (CA) Convention Center.
