SMTA International Conference and Expo Goes Virtual

In June, the Board of Directors of the The Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) announced that its annual conference and exhibition, SMTA International 2020, will be a completely virtual event starting September 28, 2020.

The new virtual format will allow attendees to navigate within a simulated conference center environment. Attendees will have access to all keynotes, the exhibit hall, and virtual networking opportunities to interact and collaborate with other participants for a fully immersive experience.

The exhibition is free to all attendees and will take place live September 28 – September 30. During this time, attendees will be able to roam the virtual show floor, view company products and demo videos, and privately chat with exhibitors. Attendees will have continued access to the exhibit hall until October 23, 2020 without the option for live chat.

Attendees who register for the Technical Conference will have exclusive access to over 100 technical presentations on-demand from September 28 – October 23, 2020 as well as the ability to download all papers in the conference proceedings.

This year’s shift from an in-person conference to completely virtual event can be daunting for some attendees. SMTA has taken numerous steps to make attending and navigating the show simple and effective.
