All About Circuits Opens Registration for Industry’s Largest Virtual Trade ShowAugust 12, 2020 by Hannah DeTavis
All About Circuits is hosting its first digital expo—marked by 50+ interactive live sessions with industry experts, a flood of new educational content, and 100 giveaway prizes.
In a year rife with cancelations and rescheduling, All About Circuits is bringing the energy of an electronics expo to our community members' homes. From August 31st to September 4th, AAC will become a virtual show floor to titans of the electronic design industry.
The event—Industry Tech Days (ITD)—is the largest digital trade show and conference for electrical engineers worldwide. As with all of the content on our site, the keynote presentations, live sessions, articles, whitepapers, and videos are all free and accessible to virtual conference-goers.
Registration is now open for Industry Tech Days. The sign-up process only requires registrants to specify their occupation and product/industry interests (along with basic contact information) to access hundreds of pages of technical resources during the five-day event.
Get the Full Networking Experience of an Expo
Industry Tech Days is designed to promote networking experiences among thousands of attendees, exhibitors, and speakers—without the public health risks of large in-person gatherings. During live sessions, participants can reach out to leading talent in the electrical engineering space—both speakers and fellow attendees—through real-time chat windows.
Just as a conference-goer might peruse an expo floor for interesting booths, product showcases, and relevant sessions, registrants can tailor their ITD experience to their schedules and interests.
The week-long ITD schedule is now live. Users can click the calendar icon to add the live session to their personal calendars.
For instance, participants can get a feel for up-and-coming innovations in the industry by visiting the "Events Page." Or, if a digital attendee's interest is piqued by a session description, he or she can hop in on a live session. Registrants will have on-demand access to webinar recordings if they are unable to attend an interactive live session.
