IPC Develops Virtual and Actual 2003 Spring TMRC Conference

Apr 10, 2003

NORTHBROOK, Ill., February 27, 2003--IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries� has developed two ways to participate in the 2003 Spring Technology Market Research Council (TMRC) Meeting, taking place on Tuesday, May 6. This year, participants can either call-in to the conference or attend in person at the Hilton Chicago O'Hare Airport in Chicago, Ill.

"In addition to the topical presentations, one of the fundamental benefits of attending an IPC TMRC meeting has always been the networking opportunities for attendees with peers, suppliers and customers," said Jeff Morton, IPC's director of marketing research. "We knew, though, that growing industry constraints would require us to examine alternatives for participants who wanted to, but were simply unable to attend. I believe that this year's conference, with its dual formats, will provide both our attendees and 'tele-attendees' a prime opportunity to receive the pertinent market data they so strongly desire."

For the one-day event, IPC has gathered several experts from the electronic interconnect industries and leaders from the electronics manufacturing services, interconnect manufacturing services/printed circuit board and OEM sectors who will all center their presentations around answering the question, "Where do we go from here?"

This year's scheduled speakers include:

� J. Keith Dunne, managing director and research analyst at RBC Capital Markets

� Walt Custer, president of Custer Consulting Group

� Kenton Alder, TTM Technologies president and CEO

� Stacey Peterson, CFO and secretary at TTM Technologies

� Roy A. Bauer, Pemstar, Inc.'s executive vice president, North American Operations

� Lawrence A. Wiklund, Intel Corporation's director of components and systems materials operation

Those who physically attend the 2003 Spring TMRC Conference will be able to develop new business contacts, renew existing business relationships and discuss industry topics in a more relaxed setting through a networking breakfast from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m., and again at a networking luncheon from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

Those who attend by teleconference will be able to download the presentations and listen from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Central Standard Time (CST) and from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., CST.
