Donald Stephens Convention Center
Next year in Rosemont, attendees and exhibitors can expect a focused event with the strongest technical conference for which SMTA International has come to be known. SMTAI has been recognized as a truly different type of industry event because of the high quality technical information and the networking opportunities that cannot be found anywhere else in the industry.
We would like to thank the speakers, chairs, technical committee, exhibitor committee, sponsors, exhibitors, and of course all of the attendees for making SMTA International a success.
Here are a few key statistics from last year's event:1,300 registered attendees from 27 countries
130 technical papers presented in 60 sessions including a Poster Session.
Session topics included Evolving Technologies, Lead-Free Soldering Technology, and Lead-Free for Harsh Environments.
176 exhibiting companies packed the show floor
Bridging the Gap Between Conference and Exhibition
SMTA International is a unique event because we connect the conference and exhibition together with programs like Doctor's Hours, the Sharing and Networking Experience, and others that help you apply relevant information to your specific situations.
