Real Time with... SMTAI 2020: First-Day Wrap-Up


Reading time ( words)

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. “We have received lots of comments on how easy the platform is, even though it is different being virtual.” She also reported that 25% of the registered attendees were new, having never attended an SMTA event before.

Things really heat up on Tuesday, with the Students and Young Professionals Program, the “Virtual Road Trip” Chapter Officers Meeting at noon CT, and an after-hours mixology class and mixer. Don’t forget that you can even win cool prizes like a Peloton bike—just by clicking on various items at booths throughout the show. 

The virtual SMTA International Electronics Exhibition runs through September 30. If you haven’t already registered for SMTAI 2020, click here.
