UP Media Statement on Covid-19

Like all the companies we serve in the electronics design and manufacturing industry, we are closely watching the world’s response to Covid-19.

All UP MEDIA GROUP staff work remotely, and our operations should continue as normal. As of this notice, our websites, magazine issues, podcast and newsletter will be updated and published per the schedule in our 2020 Media Kit.

We currently intend to hold the PCB2Day workshops scheduled for June in Austin, TX. We will provide regular updates to all sponsors, speakers and registrants as the situation on the ground becomes clearer.

PCB West 2020 at the Santa Clara (CA) Convention Center remains on track to take place in September. Confirmation letters to speakers are being sent this week, and our conference program and registration will be available by early May.

The health of our employees, contributors and customers is paramount. We will take any measures to ensure we do not subject any staff, contributors or customers to unnecessary risks due to the coronavirus.

We are open and ready to serve you during these difficult times. Please contact Mike Buetow (mbuetow@upmediagroup.com) for editorial, Frances Stewart (fstewart@upmediagroup.com) for shows, and Brooke Anglin (banglin@upmediagroup.com) for advertising.

Sincerely,

UP MEDIA GROUP staff
