I-Connect007 is proud to welcome Emmy Ross and Albert Liu to the I-Connect007 family. They have been working alongside the rest of the team on some interesting new projects since January and we are excited to formally introduce them to our reader community.
Emmy is returning to the PCB industry and joining the I-Connect007 sales team. Previously the Director of Exhibitions for the SMTA, Emmy worked with local chapters to create and execute tradeshows and conferences to build support and education in the industry. She is very excited to be back and working with fun and genuine people. Emmy values the importance of building and maintaing relationships, which she can attribute to her success in events, sales and marketing.
Albert will also be joining the IConnect007 sales team. Albert is new to the PCB industry, but he has a background working in the electronics industry and has always had a fascination with all things related to tech. Albert is enjoying his involvement in such an exciting industry. Previously, he worked at BlackBerry as a marketing intern where he was involved with the launch of the PRIV by BlackBerry. Albert assisted in the marketing campaign by setting up demonstration booths and supporting in content creation for the website and internal sales training. Currently, Albert is finishing his last year at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, as a Communication major and Business Administration minor.
Both Emmy and Albert are looking forward to meeting everyone at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO Show in Las Vegas.

As we stepped out of the hotel into the drizzling rain, we were relieved that it wasn’t snow. Looking down the escalator into the U2 platform in Munich’s Hauptbahnhof central station early on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 15 and observing the mass of humanity pushing and shoving to cram into trains to the exhibition centre, it appeared that a significant proportion of the international electronics industry had gathered to attend electronica 2022, co-located with SEMICON Europa and recognised as the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics.

The industry news cycle seems to be picking up speed lately. Of course, 30 days into the quarter is about when public companies announce their results, and in the midst of this worldwide financial situation, we’ve got all eyes on anything coming out from our counterparts in the industry. I’ve noticed that global corporate results (Nan Ya PCB and TTM, in particular) do seem to be on everyone’s radar. In addition to financial news, trade shows are popping back up around the world—Europe, India, and a special report from editor Andy Shaughnessy, who took his own road trip to Raleigh, reporting on PCB Carolina, which had its own heyday this year.
IPC, in partnership with IPC Publishing Group (I-Connect007) will unveil an exciting new publication, "IPC Community," at IPC APEX EXPO 2023, as a continuation of its commitment to better serve the electronics industry and provide additional value for IPC members.
