The 2 day TestForum 2008, the 9th event in the series, is a major event for Test professionals in the Nordic area and Baltic states. Every year the TestForum is attended by the industry’s key persons as well as by international vendors of test and measurement equipment and solutions.

Test Forum has its main emphasis on issues relevant to production managers, engineers and technicians working in the fields of production, test, inspection and validation of electronics. At TestForum events we offer technically relevant presentations on methodology, tools, modules/instruments and available technology. The interaction between users and suppliers within the focus areas is an important asset of Test Forum, and this balance and interaction is pursued in presentations, panel discussions, and in the planning of the events.

This year, the Test Forum will take place at Nordic Hotel Forum, which is located in the downtown of Tallinn nearby its medieval historic center.
