SMTconnect from 4-6 May 2021 Cancelled due to COVID-19

Reading time ( words)

Due to the continuing high rate of infections and the associated restrictions, Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH has decided to cancel the SMTconnect. The event was to have taken place in Nuremberg from 4 – 6 May 2021.

Discussions with exhibitors held in recent months, as well as feedback from visitors, have shown that the focus of the SMT community is on face-to-face events. This interest is met by the organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, which led to the decision not to hold a digital trade show.

"We are very sorry to have to cancel the on-site event in May again. However, the present situation of the pandemic does not allow us to provide the necessary planning security for the community in spring," explains Anthula Parashoudi, Vice President SMTconnect,

The SMTconnect will be held again in its usual form in Nuremberg from 10 – 12 May 2022.

I really must hand it to Tanya Martin and Ryan Flaherty for pulling off something as audacious as a virtual version of SMTA International, which took place in cyberspace on September 28–30. SMTA did it in record time. A few months ago, SMTAI was still slated to be a live event in metro Chicago. When COVID-19 travel restrictions made a live event impossible, they stopped on a dime, switched to a virtual event, and never looked back.

SMTAI 2020 wrapped up on September 30, 2020, completing its three-day run on a virtual platform. This format was uncharted territory for SMTA, exhibitors, presenters, and attendees alike. It is remarkable—and a credit to the organization in the face of a pandemic—that SMTA chose to jump to a virtual format when it could have been so very easy to simply cancel the event altogether. SMTA showed its commitment to the technical conference participants by ensuring their research would publish as intended, as well as to the sponsors and exhibitors who support the event through underwriting and participation.

SMTA International 2020 kicked off on Monday morning with attendees and exhibitors mingling and chatting about the latest SMT products and services—virtually, of course. Debbie Carboni, former SMTA VP of Expos, reported that there were “only a few hiccups,” which were addressed quickly and effectively. “This is much better than any other virtual event I have participated in,” she said.
