Due to the Corona pandemic, the SMTconnect will take place online this year. The event once again guarantees industry-wide exchange using a platform that enables exhibitors and visitors a wide range of functions.
After creating a company or visitor profile, visitors and exhibitors are able to contact each other immediately via video call or chat by means of the platform's matchmaking and speed-dating feature.
Besides various networking features, the online format includes the option of publicizing relevant content on product innovations or trends with simple product presentations or topic-based group discussions.
"The ‘SMTconnect goes digital’ offers great opportunities for efficient and sustainable networking. Moreover, it broadens expert dialogue on the future of electronics production," explains Anthula Parashoudi, Vice President SMTconnect, Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH.
Furthermore, visitors can experience the unique production line "Future Packaging", organized by Fraunhofer IZM, at the SMTconnect. The production line shows the complete assembly process, including subsequent test procedures. The production line will be depicted as a 3D video including interviews with participants and a discussion, offering valuable insights into electronics production.
