SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Electronics, a UBM company and the daily source of essential business and technical information for the electronics industry's decision makers, today unveiled DESIGN, a new conference and expo building on the rich foundation of training, education and products available at ESC, combined with popular summits and new event launches in one venue for the first time. The innovation of ESC and addition of the summits was created to serve the evolving needs of engineers and developers, who must become specialists in multi-disciplinary technologies. The premier conference, DESIGN West, is scheduled to take place March 26 – 29, 2012 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.
"DESIGN is part of a revolutionary event concept decades in the making," said David Blaza, vice president, UBM Electronics. "Unlike other, more narrowly focused industry events, DESIGN effectively unites the entire electronics development community by providing access to the latest design insights and techniques in one place, at one time. Building on the strong foundation of Embedded Systems Conference (ESC), DESIGN caters to the extremely technical, higher-learning needs of the world's top engineers while providing an unprecedented forum for the examination of the industry's pressing business challenges across multiple specialities in electronics systems design. It is literally the largest electronics specific educational event in the world with over 300 content sessions and exhibits featuring the latest hardware, software and technology innovations."
DESIGN West combines the flagship ESC brand with popular summits and new event launches including:
In addition to the comprehensive educational conference agenda, DESIGN West offers engineers, product developers and business managers hands-on experience with the newest electronics technologies from more than 300 vendors including Signature Partner, Mouser Electronics.
"As a long-standing Embedded Systems Conference premium sponsor, Mouser is in lock-step with the changing needs of electronics engineers and business executives," said Larry Johannes, Vice President of Strategic Marketing at Mouser Electronics, DESIGN West's Signature Partner. "DESIGN West's combination of the top industry summits is a great opportunity for Mouser to support design engineers from many disciplines by providing expert knowledge and access to the technologies that advance innovation and accelerate time to market."
As part of our goal to provide a continuing educational experience and community resource year-round, the new DESIGN West web site (http://www.ubmdesign.com) integrates technology developed by UBM Studios with intelligent content that enhances the user attendee experience before, during and after the event. The web site will provide intelligent, personalized content in real-time including white papers, webinars, videos, special offers and collateral. The intelligent content functionality not only delivers targeted subject matter content, but it also dynamically monitors users' reaction and engagement patterns and recommends additional, meaningful content to keep the user motivated and engaged.
