IPC APEX EXPO 2013 trade show promises to deliver answers, solutions and opportunities for future innovation in electronics manufacturing. The event will take place February 19–21, at the San Diego Convention Center.
Unlike other shows, IPC APEX EXPO hosts an exhibition with more than 400 of the industry’s top suppliers, professional development courses, standards development meetings, executive management meetings as well as the world’s most highly selective technical conference in electronics manufacturing.
“Results from the technical papers presented allow us to get to solutions faster, reduce our internal experimentation and make connections with experts that are great resources for future projects,” said Julie Silk, technical program manager, Agilent Technologies. “By talking face-to-face with engineers working on similar challenges, we make progress on reaching industry-wide solutions that benefit all of us.”
In addition, IPC APEX EXPO features many free activities, including technical BUZZ sessions, poster presentations, keynotes on a vision of life in the future and an inside look at the Curiosity rover mission, networking opportunities and new this year, a Printed Board Assembly Cleaning & Contamination Center that will be on the show floor. Also on the exhibition floor, the highly popular New Products Corridor and the IPC APEX EXPO Hand Soldering Competition will again be featured. In 2013, IPC APEX EXPO will also welcome hand soldering champions from around the world as it hosts the IPC Hand Soldering World Championship on February 21.
To help attendees plan their itineraries for the show and to focus in on the products and services of most interest to them, IPC offers My APEX EXPO, an online interactive planner that enables users to effectively and efficiently make appointments with exhibitors and schedule their time at the show.
