What you’ll learn:

  • The conference includes pre-conference workshops, presentations, and exhibits with demos.
  • Electronic Design will be providing some coverage remotely as vendors contact us or we reach out.
  • There are good reasons to attend, and possibly a good reason not to—Electronic Design feels it’s important to inform our readers when others appear silent.


Sensors Converge will be a live tradeshow—with exhibits—and conference at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif., running from June 24 to 26, 2024. 

Many of Monday's, June 24th’s, pre-conference workshops and events look interesting, including:

  • Challenges and Opportunities for Printed, Flexible, Stretchable and Functional/E-Fabric Sensors and Sensor-Based Systems
  • Unlocking the IoT with TinyML and LoRaWAN
  • AutoTech – Driving Automotive Technology Forward
  • Examining the Impacts of AI in the Design & Development of Electronics
  • Rust for C Programmers
  • Sensorizing with MEMS: Exploring the Latest in Products, Design, and Manufacturing
  • Industry Hub with Lunch Roundtables (includes lunch) – first come, first served
  • Women In Sensors & Engineering Breakfast

The full conference schedule is available here, with an exhibitor list of around 200 companies. The registration page can be found here.

Electronic Design plans to cover some of the demos and new product announcements from the conference, remotely.

Though it doesn’t appear to have been disclosed in any other trade publication so far, the Bay Area allegedly has some reported problems, so weigh very carefully whether to attend Sensors Converge in person and determine if any precautions are needed if attending. Electronic Design is not attending this COnference and it’s Very important to us to keep our readers InformeD and healthy.

Notably, there is a waiver of responsibility by the conference organizers, promising the venue “will be...safe”:

“Sensors Converge will be a safe and controlled environment where exhibitors, attendees, and speakers can interact, conduct meetings, and form meaningful relationships. As we move towards opening day on June 24-26, 2024, we want you to know we are taking every step available to create a safe and secure show experience.”

They also note:

“An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. You assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting a communicable disease or illness—including, without limitation, exposure to COVID-19 or any other bacteria, virus, or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness, whether that exposure occurs before, during, or after the event, and regardless of how caused or contracted—and you hereby waive any and all claims and potential claims against Questex and any companies affiliated with Questex relating to such risks, hazards, and dangers.”

To be specific, there are these two articles to consider: SF Examiner news article from two days ago, or the SF Gate piece a week prior. We’re still a few days away until the conference as this is written, so maybe they’ll warn attendees at the door.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Be informed, be safe, look at the links I provided, take necessary precautions for your own situation, stay healthy. I need you around to read my stuff—andyt
