Kelly Dack: What are your thoughts on IPC APEX EXPO 2020?

Gerry Padnos: This is my 28th year coming to the show if you count NEPCON West, so I’ve been here quite a few times, but the traffic is down a little bit from previous years. Some people have a theory that the coronavirus had something to do with it because visitors from Asia may not have been able to come. But overall, it has been a successful show for us. We have mainly seen serious shoppers, not just window shoppers. We have done a lot of good work here, and we have a lot of interest in our products.
