PCB EAST POSTPONED UNTIL 2022 BECAUSE OF COVID PROTOCOLS

Apr 29, 2021

The PCB East conference and exhibition will be postponed until next year because of the continuing impact of Covid-19 on the region and local restrictions on the size of gatherings. The show will return to the Boston area in Spring 2022.

“After much thoughtful consideration and given the continuing impact of Covid-19, UP Media Group has made the difficult decision to postpone PCB East until Spring of 2022,” said Frances Stewart, vice president of sales and marketing, UPMG. “We have been actively following advisories from the state of Massachusetts with the expectation that PCB East 2021 could successfully move forward. However, current regulations in Massachusetts limit gatherings in venues to 100 maximum per group, thereby restricting our ability to hold an appropriately sized exhibition, to host networking events, and to offer enough seating for the technical conference. 

“This was a difficult decision, but one we feel was necessary to ensure both the safety of and a high-quality event for our attendees, exhibitors and speakers. We believe it is important to host a PCB supply chain event on the East coast, and we are confident we can host such an event safely – and successfully – in 2022.”

PCB West 2021, scheduled for the Santa Clara Convention Center on October 5-8, is unaffected by the decision to postpone PCB East.
