Statistical Trends in Counterfeit Electronic Supply Chains
 
It’s been over 10 years since the industry as a whole began to address the growing threat of counterfeit product in the electronic supply chain. Numerous standards, dozens of conferences, and untold presentations have been produced in an effort to educate our industry. After all that work, has there been a quantifiable impact across the supply chain or are we trying to address the wrong root causes?
 
Presentation By: Gary Beckstedt Director of Operations Flip Electronics
 
Gary Beckstedt heads the quality and inspection labs for the company as well as managing all logistics operations. Gary’s role requires him to institute and direct all quality management programs and processes as well as performing internal audits. Among his many challenges, Gary has the responsibility to ensure that Flip Electronics’ ISO/ANSI standards and certification programs, ESD programs, inspection and counterfeit detection process, and personnel training are all in compliance with their respective requirements and procedures. Gary helps to identify and track industry changes that affect the supply chain and supports the industry as a whole by serving on the G19-D committee that is tasked with maintaining the AS6081 standard. He is the company’s principal spokesperson in matters related to quality and methods of detection and abatement of counterfeit and suspect electronic parts. Gary is a US Air Force veteran, where he began his electronics career in 1989. He operated and maintained RADAR systems to support the Desert Storm and Desert Shield campaigns. He is a graduate of the AS9100D Lead Auditor program and an IPC Certified EMS Program Manager.

Atlanta SMTA 23RD Annual EXPO

Thursday, April 11, 2019 | 10:30AM
Location: *******NEW LOCATION***** TECH PARK ATLANTA 107 Technology Pkwy NW, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092 *******NEW LOCATION*****

SMTA EXPO, April 11, 2019
For 22 years the SMTA Atlanta Chapter has worked very hard to organize a best-in-class event for our local and regional  SMTA exhibitors and visitors. Our chapter is well known for many reasons and our Expo has always been on top of the list. Every year Atlanta SMTA chapter officers and volunteers put their heads together to try and create a show with something for everyone. The combination of business and networking opportunities is a proven recipe for success  - and this year will be no different.
 
Our traditional venue at the Infinite Energy Center is going through some major renovations and for that reason, among others, we are relocating in 2019 to Atlanta Tech Park.  Conveniently located in the Peachtree Corners/Norcross area where “Atlanta high-tech” began back in the 70's, the facility is new and spacious. Exciting new features for exhibitors include video monitors throughout the show floor where your ads can be running continuously during the show. 

The new venue also allows us to choose our own catering company which means a hot buffet lunch and a beer/wine reception at the end of the show. No more box lunches.
 
We are finalizing the technical program and should have details soon. Pete Waddell will be back with his Designers Round Table plus more technical sessions to be announced.


We are very excited about our local charity partner this year. Canine Assistance has been training service dogs for over 27 years in Alpharetta. They have an incredible history and story to tell. Come to the Expo to meet some of their beautiful furry students!  

 
The following sponsorship opportunities still exist.

5 Reception Sponsorships - $100,00. Included: Signage in your booth and on digital as well as mention on SMTA website and in show guide.
