Well, so much for reporting "at the speed of the Internet." Last week's Interphex conference and exposition in New York City was far more upbeat than the previous year's event. Attendance seemed higher, the conference program was stronger and much better organized, and the subsidiary conference theme of "globalization" (focused on India and China) was right on target. Reed will take Interphex to India and China this year, and also to Mexico. Brazil is on a short list of possible new venues for the program. Here are just a few impressions/tidbits from this year's program.
- Facility of the Year
- The Rise of China and India
- PAT and Risk Based Manufacturing
