PCB West 2023 Show Floor Selling Out

The exhibition floor space for PCB West 2023 is more than 50% sold, the Printed Circuit Engineering Association (PCEA) said.

Booth sales began the middle of October, and the largest available spaces were immediately sold out. The show floor is expected to sell out shortly, show organizers added, as booth space is now open to companies that did not exhibit last year.

“Coming off an outstanding PCB West 2022, booth sales for our 2023 event have been strong,” said Frances Stewart, vice president of sales and marketing at PCEA. “We had several new companies approach us during this year’s show about exhibiting next year, and expect to be sold out in early 2023.”

PCB West will be held September 19-22, 2023, at the Santa Clara (CA) Convention Center. The event includes a one-day exhibition on September 20.
