Member of the Week: Millennium Alliance Group

Congratulations to Millennium Alliance Group, ECIA’s Member of the Week.

Millennium Alliance was founded in 1993. Their associates include twenty-two account managers and four field applications engineers, strategically positioned across six states.  They are experts at presenting the best available technical solutions to challenging, real world, engineering problems. Their offices are strategically located throughout their territory. Accounts are visited regularly and customers rely on the account manager to be there when assistance is needed. Manufacturer’s products gain customer visibility as soon as they hit the market! 

Millennium Alliance  associates are experienced and successful at solving real world challenges for many market segments: Industrial, Automation, Automotive, Military/Aerospace, Appliance, Networking, Medical, Consumer, Lighting, Communications and Safety. 

Company president Mike Longano serves on the Independent Manufacturer Rep Council and members of the Millennium team have assisted ECIA with Committee work. ECIA is grateful for their long running support – thank you!

IDEA Webinar

June 9 Webinar | 9 AM EDT (3 PM CET) |  Register Today

Demand for electronic components is much stronger than forecast and is exceeding many manufacturers ability to supply leading to extended lead-times and product shortages. And unfortunately the situation is likely to get worse before it improves... Is it a temporary problem linked to the pandemic or something structural? 

To provide better insight into the current situation IDEA (International Distribution of Electronics Association) has organized a one hour Roundtable Webinar to allow its members to hear the views of a number of leading industry analysts and share their opinions.


Did You Know? No Endorsement of Attendee/Accommodation Solicitations

ECIA does not work with third parties that solicit hotel accommodations outside of our conference event venues. Many members have received emails offering EDS attendee lists and "assistance" with securing hotel rooms at EDS and the Executive Conference. These solicitations are not endorsed or approved by ECIA.
