Digi-Key Electronics, a global electronic components distributor, announced that it is the preferred partner of the Industry Tech Days Virtual Conference hosted by EETech. Industry Tech Days is the largest ever virtual trade show and conference for electrical engineers worldwide and will be held Aug. 31 – Sept. 4, 2020 on the community-driven website, All About Circuits. The trade show will feature industry leaders, technical sessions, 300+ articles, videos, and whitepapers, and more than 100 giveaway prize packages.
Digi-Key will be presenting live webinars every day of the conference, with a keynote panel featuring President and COO Dave Doherty on Friday, Sept. 4, on the emergence of the virtual supply chain in a COVID-19 world.
“We’re thrilled to sponsor this great event with EETech,” says Brooks Vigen, director of global strategic marketing for Digi-Key. “This event fills a need for bringing the industry together in our current, distanced environment. We’re excited to learn from other industry partners and share our expertise with the community that we have missed seeing in person this year.”
All registrants will be entered to win 1 of 100 giveaway packages, including development boards, soldering mats and tee shirts. Digi-Key is sponsoring the grand prize, which is a commercial-grade LulzBot 3D printer. To register for the event, visit the Tech Days registration page.
“In-person events in the foreseeable future will be heavily reduced and limited,” said Adam LaBarbera, co-founder and CEO of EETech. “Our goal is to replicate the traditional, in-person trade show experience in an internet-suitable format. We want our community to gain significant value from the experience and interaction.”
Attendees of the event will be able to watch live and on-demand sessions by the best speakers in the industry, and also have the opportunity to participate in live Q&As. Additionally, participants will get to connect with thousands of attendees, exhibitors, and speakers in real-time, with private chats in the Digi-Key Technology Pavilion.
