Electronics converges on capital
More than 300 companies spanning design, components and manufacturing through to distribution will be showcasing new and proven products and services at National Electronics Week, the show that makes its debut in London this month. Running at Earls Court from 17-19 June, the event includes a free programme of seminars running in two theatres, in which industry groups such as E-KTN, Intellect and UKEA will discuss a wide range of topics including RoHS, WEEE and supply chain management. UK and international trade associations will be providing expert advice and two interactive production lines will demonstrate state-of-the-art components on six-layer boards. Showcasing leading-edge technologies in action, this exhibit will provide attendees with an opportunity to be part of the line, with live discussion forums taking place to analyse findings.
