UP Media Group to Sponsor 4th Annual Virtual PCB in March 2011

The industry's only live, Web-based event for electronics designers, fabricators, and assemblers

Smyrna, GA - UP Media Group today announced the dates for the fourth annual VIRTUAL PCB, the industry's only virtual trade show and conference for the PCB design, fabrication and assembly markets. The free two-day worldwide event takes place March 8-9, 2011. Exhibitors already are signing up, Bare Board Group, DownStream Technologies and EMA Design Automation among them. 
A fully interactive, Web-based event, VIRTUAL PCB ( incorporates all the critical features of a live event, while allowing PCB design, fabrication and assembly equipment and materials buyers and sellers to interact online. VIRTUAL PCB is supported by a proven software platform (provided by INXPO), and will be accessible on-demand for one month beyond the free two-day live event. The 2010 event drew more than 2,900 registrants and 1,600 attendees from around the world.
Features of the upcoming virtual event will include custom exhibit booths, live attendee-attendee and attendee-exhibitor communication, live and on-demand equipment demonstrations, real-time technical presentations, open "chats" moderated by industry experts, and much more. 
"VIRTUAL PCB sets the benchmark for what a global trade show can be," said UP Media Group President Pete Waddell. "It's dynamic, with lots of methods to communicate with peers, customers or suppliers. Also, while live trade show attendance tends to be very local in nature, VIRTUAL PCB lets you talk with counterparts from around the world, either in a group or one-on-one."
