MEMS Executive Congress® US 2013 – November 7-8, 2013

MEMS Executive Congress® US 2013 – November 7-8, 2013
Meritage Resort and Spa, Napa, CA.

This year, there were many unique changes brought to this already distinct professional forum that make it a “Can’t Miss” event. We have added new features, like the MEMS Technology Pitch Session, and will offer Media Training by the esteemed best-selling author TJ Walker. We have also reduced the number of panel discussions, but have included more speakers, simply to deliver more industry news and hot topics. Sure to be one of the best in recent memory, don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of MEMS Executive Congress® US 2013!

Coventor will sponsor the popular post-dinner networking event on Friday November 8. It’s a great chance to review the day’s events with your colleagues, discuss trends in the industry, and catch up with old friends from around the MEMS world. Coventor executives will be on hand to chat about the latest developments from the leader in MEMS design automation solutions.
