IPC APEX EXPO 2019 Exhibit Space Going Fast


Reading time ( words)

IPC–Association Connecting Electronics Industries reports that 85% of exhibit floor space has been sold for IPC APEX EXPO 2019. Three hundred twenty-seven exhibitors have been assigned to 134,200 net square feet of exhibit space, marking a 5% increase in square footage compared to 2018’s booth space selection event. The premier technical conference and exhibition for the electronics manufacturing industry will take place January 29–31, 2019, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.

“Our exhibitors recognize that IPC APEX EXPO is the event to help them achieve their business goals and that IPC brings buyers and sellers together under one roof,” said Alicia Balonek, senior director of trade shows and events. 

The largest event of its kind in North America, IPC APEX EXPO sold out of exhibitor space last year and 2019 is promising to sell out as well. “Our number one priority is to give our exhibitors and attendees the best return on their investments, giving them an opportunity to grow their businesses and increase revenue,” said Balonek.

IPC APEX EXPO attracts a global audience of industry executives and decision makers in the ever-evolving electronics manufacturing and assembly market. IPC APEX EXPO 2018 post-show surveys from participants reflected that of those attending, 80 percent recommend, influence, or have key purchasing power and 50 percent make the final decisions.

One of the top objectives for attendees is to see new products. “This event is an excellent opportunity to meet new customers, promote your business, network with existing customers and sell products and services,” Balonek added.

Post-show survey respondents have affirmed the buzz that rang throughout the 2018 show: attendees and exhibitors alike met their goals for networking, technical exchange, education and sales leads.

“IPC APEX EXPO 2018 was the most successful for my company and perhaps of all the years we have been exhibiting. The booth traffic was strong as were the leads -- we’re looking forward to coming back again next year for IPC APEX EXPO 2019,” said Jason Spera, CEO, Aegis Software.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

I’m sure it’s just me being hyperaware, but I can’t shake it: Mars is where it’s at right now. Is it just me, or do you get the same feeling from the news? There are the Mars rovers—three generations of them still rolling, now—and a drone helicopter winding up for a maiden flight any day now. But that’s not all. There’s SpaceX’s StarShip, rapid-prototyping its way into a manned flight to Mars. And NASA’s whole “return to the Moon” project is simply a shakedown for the U.S. government contractors’ Mars flight hardware, too.

IPC Supporting Newcomers in the Industry: Notes from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/01/2021 | Marc Carter, Aeromarc
With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
