PCB East, the electronic industry’s East Coast conference and trade show, returns June 4-7, 2024, with a four-day conference and a one-day exhibition at the Boxboro Regency Hotel and Conference Center in Boxborough, MA. This event is a much-needed opportunity for the design community, as well as fabricators and assemblers, to get together and check out the latest technology.

PCB West, the largest event for the PCB supply chain in the Silicon Valley, returns to the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA for a four-day conference October 8-11, 2024, and a one-day exhibition October 9. For more than 30 years PCB West has trained designers, engineers, fabricators and, lately, assemblers on making printed circuit boards for every product or use imaginable.


PCEA’s awards programs are the most prestigious in the electronics design and manufacturing industry. They include the annual Service Excellence Awards which since 1991 has recognized the top EMS companies and electronics assembly suppliers and it is the only such program based on actual feedback from one’s customers. The 2024 Service Excellence Awards will be presented at the SMTA International trade show in October 2024.

The NPI Awards, which debuted in 2008, recognizes the leading new products for electronics assembly and fabrication during the past 12 months. The awards are selected by an independent panel of practicing industry engineers and are presented annually each spring.
