Congratulations to Global SMT & Packaging, which recently received the Media of the Year Award from SMTA China. Trevor Galbraith, Editor-in-Chief, was presented with the award during NEPCON China.

In another move, SMT & Packaging “went live” with their SMT TV channel, when they streamed two presentation and two panel discussions from SMT/Hybrid/Packaging in Nuremberg, Germany. Although most websites in our industry have begun to embrace video content, it’s great to see sites begin live broadcasts: this is surely not only good for the website, but also great promotion for the show. Trevor Galbraith promises more live broadcasts for, “new product launches, factory openings, training and maintenance videos”.
