Technology Focus - With the rapid globalization of world economies and markets, many electronics companies are now outsourcing some of their manufacturing steps to subcontractors around the world. Both technical and business people realize they must look at their product and manufacturing processes with a broader perspective. IMAPS facilitates this discussion by organizing its technical programs to match a 4 tiered global supply chain model encompassing industry, systems and applications, design, and materials and process. Communications among all 4 tiers of the microelectronics and packaging supply chain are critical to the success of innovation and new product developments.
IMAPS - Bringing Together the Entire Microelectronics Supply Chain!

Focus Sessions - IMAPS 2008 will have sessions emphasizing the work being done in the North East Corridor. These are: Biomedical; Telecommunications; Military Applications; Consumer Electronics; Renewable Energy: fuel cells, solar and wind generators.

Expanded Advertising and Public Relations Reach - IMAPS will expand the reach and frequency of its advertising over previous campaigns and will include advertisements or announcements in both print and electronic media. IMAPS will also implement a press relations campaign to motivate attendance from readers of all electronics industry periodicals, with more focused attention on editors from Packaging, Wireless, RF, Military Electronics and Medical Device trade press.
