Published: 13 August 2012 - Michelle Winny
German trade fair, electronica 2012 will experience a new PCB Marketplace communications platform that is being initiated at the show, in collaboration with the ZVEI (Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers’ Association).
The platform was originally launched at productronica 2011 and offers a forum as well as a networking area for the PCB industry.
A diverse lecture program is available and visitors are able to participate in a comprehensive information exchanges on topic such as PCBs, other circuit carriers and EMS.
The Marketplace will be located in Hall C1. The exhibition sector will be located in Halls B1 and C1 and features companies such as FELA Leiterplattentechnik, Flextronics International Germany, Multek Europe, Italia, SANMINA - SCI Holding, Würth Elektronik and Zollner Elektronik.
Christoph Stoppok, Managing Director of the Electronic Components and Systems and PCB and Electronic Systems trade associations in the ZVEI said: “The concept of the PCB Marketplace as a central communications gathering proved to be extremely effective, so we decided to introduce this successful model at electronica, as well.”
The main themes of the lecture program include connectors, PCB & EMS (electronic manufacturing services), MCD (material content data) and IMDS (international material data systems). The first items on the agenda have already been announced: On November 14, the ZVEI will hold a panel discussion on ‘The World of Testing – Achieving the Desired Quality Safely’.
Following this, representatives from companies such as Robert Bosch, Lackwerke Peters and Varioprint will discuss ‘PCB Reliability’.
A list of all lectures at the PCB Marketplace is available in the show’s event database.
