Sustainability For Survivability

"Electronics Manufacturing Through Unprecedented Times"


Thank you for clicking on the conference page.  Our first ever virtual conference was held on September 17, 2020.  We had a fantastic turnout and our selection of speakers was well received. 

We decided to have this conference because the majority of trade shows have been postponed or pushed back and company visits have been canceled.  So we put together 4 sessions that we felt would provide you with the necessary resources to keep your company on course during these crazy times.

We hope the topics below will help solve your supply chain problems, answer questions about PCB partnerships, and provide you with a turnkey solution for your next product.

So let's batten down the hatches and
weather the storm together!

CEO of Matric Group
