PCB West 2019 Show Floor More Than 95% Sold Out



ATLANTA, GA – NOVEMBER 15, 2018 – The exhibition floor space for PCB West 2019 is more than 95% sold, UP Media Group Inc. said today.

Booth sales began the middle of October and the largest available spaces were immediately sold out. The show floor is expected to sell out for the eighth year in a row, show organizers added.

“We continue to see heavy demand for booths on the basis of several straight years of stellar attendance,” said Frances Stewart, vice president of sales and marketing at UP Media Group. “More than half the show floor was reserved in the first 48 hours, and we have a lengthy waiting list for space, so we fully expect another sell out show.”

PCB West will be held September 9 - 11, 2019, in Santa Clara, CA. The event includes a three-day technical conference and one-day exhibition to be held at the Santa Clara (CA) Convention Center.

PCB West annually provides a conference and exhibition focused on the design and manufacture of PCBs, HDI, electronics assembly and circuit board test. The September 2018 event attracted nearly 2,000 attendees.

Currently 105 booths for the September 2019 trade show have been sold, or over 95% of the show floor, leaving five booths remaining.

UP Media Group Announces Conference Speakers for PCB West 2019

ATLANTA, GA – NOVEMBER 15, 2018 – UP Media Group Inc. announced registration for this year’s PCB West conference is now open, and the conference has been extended to four days.

PCB West, the largest conference and exhibition for printed circuit board design, fabrication and assembly in the Silicon Valley, will feature 59 presentations, of which 41 will be at least two hours long. A total of 20 will be half-day workshops (3.5 hours) and five will be full-day tutorials (seven hours).

“From a record number 88 abstracts submitted, we selected 59 that we think represent the breadth and depth of information designers and design engineers need for the boards of today and tomorrow,” said Mike Buetow, conference chairman. “They represent the cutting edge of advanced component packages, flex design, noise control, and very high-speed design.

“Our all-day program features tutorials on PCB stackup design and materials selection, very high-speed differential signals, understanding the IPC standards, and basics of PCB design, among others. For the first time in years, Rick Hartley, Eric Bogatin and Lee Ritchey will all present at PCB West. Indeed, a fourth day has been added to the conference to accommodate the longer sessions.”

For the eighth consecutive year all booths have been sold for the popular exhibition, UPMG added. The September 2018 event attracted nearly 2,000 attendees.

PCB West 2019 will be held September 9-12 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.

Now in its 28th year, this year’s show will feature 110 booths showcasing the leading companies in the PCB industry, including the top CAD and CAM vendors and top names in printed circuit fabrication and electronics assembly.

PRINTED CIRCUIT DESIGN & FAB and CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY magazines are media partners for the event.

UP Media Group Announces Final Registration Numbers for PCB West 2018

ATLANTA, GA – UP Media Group Inc. today announced final registration figures for PCB West 2018, held earlier this month at the Santa Clara (CA) Convention Center.

Nearly 2,600 electronics technologists registered to attend the three-day conference or exhibits, show organizers said.

“PCB West remains the leading event for printed circuit board design engineers, designers and manufacturers,” said Mike Buetow, PCB West conference chair. “Highlights of this year’s conference included sessions on RF and mixed signal design, 3-D printing, and a panel on recruiting new employees. Exhibitors were very pleased with the show floor traffic, which was steady throughout the day. And several new companies have already inquired about becoming exhibitors next year.”

Mark Finstad, senior application engineer at Flexible Circuit Technologies and a longtime PCB West speaker, said, “PCB West gives attendees a forum stacked with industry-recognized experts in many PCB manufacturing disciplines, including high-speed PCB design, manufacturing PCBs, troubleshooting, flexible circuitry and many more. Most, if not all, the instructors make themselves available after the class is over to address specific questions from individuals. All in all, it’s a great place to learn about all things PCB!”

“Great show again,” added Eriko Yamato, marketing manager, FaradFlex. “We always get great traffic, leads and leave with a great feeling.”

PCB West annually provides a conference and exhibition focused on the design and manufacture of PCBs, HDI, electronics assembly and circuit board test. Next year’s show takes place Sept. 9-11, 2019, at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
