An important focus this year is the development of the industry in times of Corona, a subject the VDMA will be holding a press conference on at the beginning of the event. Subsequently, there will be several exciting panel discussions, including one by media partner SCOOP on the accelerated digital transformation of the industry due to COVID-19. The unique "Future Packaging" production line, which depicts the entire manufacturing process of an electronic component, will be shown virtually on the first day of the event, and organized by the Fraunhofer IZM.
Extensive networking options
The exchange of knowledge remains highly relevant this year. The SMTconnect will therefore continue to offer participants a valuable platform for cross-industry networking. In this respect, SMTconnect goes digital will be providing numerous opportunities to find out about the latest products and services within electronics manufacturing and to connect.
While the matchmaking function of the integrated communication tool will support participants to find the right contact, they can also add up to five new contacts in just 30 minutes on both days with the optional business “speed-dating” function. Furthermore, it is possible to network with all active participants at any given time.
Registration for the event is free of charge for visitors: smtconnect.com/tickets
