BSI to launch seminar series at Nepcon 2006
Mar 01, 2006
Reed Exhibitions has confirmed that this year's Nepcon schedule will be more extensive than ever, backed by the launch of a comprehensive lead-free seminar programme from the British Standards Institute.
Being held over 9th â€“ 11th May at the Birmingham NEC, the BSI seminars will run alongside the SMART Group's Electronics Process Technology Seminars to add a further dimension to the event's informative lead-free focus. The BSI schedule, to be repeated daily for the duration of the event, will cover a range of topical issues related to lead-free compliance. Seminar titles include: "PCB Standards: which one is right for me?", "IPC 610: Pb-free guidance", "The RoHS Directive: Routes to compliance" and "IPC 610: Prove your capabilities."
"The scale of the information available at this year's Nepcon exhibition really highlights our commitment to addressing the issues facing the modern electronics industry," explains Nepcon Sales Manager, Claire Jeffreys. "The involvement of the BSI is an extremely valuable addition to Nepcon 2006, ensuring that event participants are able to confidently meet the requirements of the RoHS directive."
Manufacturers around the country rely on BSI testing to independently assess the performance of their products. As a consequence, the role of the organisation is particularly relevant for today's electronics manufacturers as they prepare to transition to the new lead-free environment.
"The combination of BSI and SMART Group-run seminars will maintain Nepcon's reputation as a valuable industry knowledge base," adds Jeffreys. "As the event moves to the improved facilities of the NEC in Birmingham, we have been able to increase the scope of the attractions involved within the exhibition. The extensive seminar line-up is a great example of this, and one which will deliver direct value to the majority of Nepcon attendees."
