IPC APEX EXPO 2021 Goes Virtual


Reading time ( words)

IPC APEX EXPO 2021 will be offered virtually, March 8-12, 2021.

“Given ongoing COVID-19 health and safety concerns and continued restrictions for large gatherings and events in California, it was not feasible to safely convene the nearly 9,000 expected participants at IPC APEX EXPO 2021,” said IPC President and CEO John Mitchell. “The event will now take place in a safe, all-virtual format.”

While the event is going virtual, IPC APEX EXPO will still be the place to connect, collaborate and learn as the event’s virtual platform will allow attendees, exhibitors and speakers to easily navigate more than 100 technical conference sessions and professional development courses as well as product demonstrations, and schedule one-on-one meetings with exhibitors. As an added bonus, technical conference sessions will be available to registered attendees for replay, providing a unique opportunity to take advantage of education for 90 days after the event.

And rounding out the immersive experience, attendees can attend multiple keynotes, a “meet and greet” with IPC Hall of Famers and Emerging Engineers, participate in a virtual trivia event, and learn about cutting edge products and technologies during daily exhibitor new product introductions.

Mitchell added, “Be it in person or via an online platform, it is IPC’s goal to maintain IPC APEX EXPO’s position as the premier event for the electronics manufacturing industry, providing practical applications for learning – knowledge that attendees can immediately apply to their work and as well as far-reaching insights that can be applied toward implementing future technologies. Wherever in the world you may be located, IPC APEX EXPO 2021 is the place to be.”

Registration for IPC APEX EXPO 2021 is expected to open December 17. To view schedule at a glance and exhibitor list, visit www.ipcapexexpo.org. IPC APEX EXPO will return to an in-person format in 2022 and will take place January 25–27, 2022 at the San Diego Convention Center.

Michael Carano is a noted subject matter expert with respect to process control, electroplating and metallization technology, surface finishing, and reliability. So, it was only natural that we sat down to talk about mechanizing an existing facility given today’s fickle environment. Will any of the CHIPS funding trickle down to bare board fabrication? What process can be adjusted on the factory floor? The focus needs to be more than just on manufacturing and getting work out the door, he says, but also process control.

IPC: Companies Are Intentional About Tracking Environmental and Social Risks

09/22/2022 | Suhani Chitalia and Kelly Scanlon, IPC
Leading companies in the electronics manufacturing industry are highly intentional about their environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities, with climate change and energy use among the most closely scrutinized issues, an IPC analysis shows. As part of IPC’s ESG for Electronics initiative, IPC is interested in developing resources for members on the most common ESG methods and priorities of leading companies across the electronics value chain. In support of this, IPC has preliminarily analyzed the ESG reports of approximately a dozen companies in selected portions of the industry.
