Reading time ( words)

From revolutionary advancements displayed on the show floor to expert insights conveyed in technical conference sessions and professional development courses, IPC APEX EXPO 2017 provided the learning and connections that helped 4,169 attendees from 39 countries prepare for the future. The 449 exhibitors welcomed a busy three days of business development and qualified sales leads on 149,600 square feet of show floor space. IPC APEX EXPO attracted 8,446 total visitors including attendees and exhibitor personnel.

Many attendees indicate that IPC APEX EXPO influences their buying decisions throughout the year which is an important factor for the show exhibitors. “IPC APEX EXPO is a great industry event that creates opportunities for us to engage in deeper discussions about our Smart Factory Solutions regardless of a customer’s mix or volume. It’s more than a traditional trade show… Customers actually come to explore how automation can solve their production challenges so they can focus on running their business,” said M. Faisal Pandit, president, Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America.

Show attendees also achieved what they sought from the event. “IPC APEX EXPO is great because it provided professional development and technical courses as well as networking opportunities and the ability to meet with vendors on the show floor,” said Amy Taylor, industrial engineer, Rockwell Collins.

Milea Kammer, Ph.D., senior product design engineer, Honeywell Aerospace, echoes the sentiment, “The experience to be able to meet experts and thought leaders under one roof here at IPC APEX EXPO, who have paved the way in this industry and talk with them about the decisions they’ve made and the lessons they’ve learned has really been a great experience for me this early in my career.”

In 2018, IPC APEX EXPO will return to the San Diego Convention Center, February 27-March 1. Industry researchers, engineers and academics are invited to submit an abstract for consideration in next year’s technical conference or professional development courses in the online Call for Participation at .
