The 2009 SMTAI Conference and Exhibition will be held under one roof at The Town and Country Resort and Convention Center in San Diego, CA. SMTAI will continue to offer the same strong conference and exhibit floor � featuring equipment as well as materials and services � focused exclusively on the electronics assembly industry.
JoAnn Stromberg, SMTA Administrator, said that the move to San Diego in 2009 is going to be a win-win situation for those who have attended SMTAI in the past and those who have not. �We hope that the people who have grown accustomed to attending the conference in both Orlando and Chicago will join us in San Diego for this focused conference and exhibition,� Stromberg said. �In addition, we hope that there will be new attendees who have not attended due to travel time or budget constraints. San Diego will offer us the opportunity to expand our attendee base, and attract some new people to both the conference and the exhibition.�
The SMTA membership is an international network of professionals who build skills, share practical experience and develop solutions in electronic assembly technologies, including microsystems, emerging technologies, and related business operations.
