Topics presented include:

This event is ideally suited to any member of staff working in electronics manufacturing and design. Managers also will benefit from a fuller understanding of the issues currently being experienced in our industry.

The price for the workshop is £85 plus VAT for SMART Group Members and £175 for non-members. The cost for delegates includes tea and coffee, lunch, and full access to copies of all the presentation material immediately after the event. Additionally, there is a limited opportunity to book a tabletop exhibition space at this workshop. Each space booked allows for the cost of one delegate attending.
