IPC APEX EXPO: We’re Back, Masked, and Ready for Business


Reading time ( words)

Nearly a century ago (1933, to be exact), the Lone Ranger debuted in a radio show out of Detroit, Michigan in the U.S. The character went on to become a popular radio drama, a television series, a book series, comic books, and multiple movies. Repeatedly, after the Lone Ranger had saved the day, townspeople, settlers, and villains alike, were heard to wonder, “Who was that masked man?”

This comes to mind this Monday, as I-Connect007 is here in San Diego, setting up our booth on the show floor for the exhibition portion of IPC APEX EXPO. Technical conferences and programs start today, and the show floor has filled with all the biggest names in our industry. Registration has been smooth and everyone seems to be wearing masks.

Of course, the Lone Ranger was covering his eyes to contain his identity; we’re all covering our noses and mouths to contain a possible viral transmission. There is that difference.

Early word from the technical conference is that things are ramping up nicely. The I-Connect007 team has been covering the weekend proceedings as well, including the multiple professional development programs and the committee work underway, including the well-attended J-STD-001 committee meeting. Early word from the technical conference is that things are ramping up nicely, ready to kick into top gear today.

We’ll be out amongst the conference rooms, covering the Monday activities. If you’re at the show, please stop by our booth and say hello. Following along from home or office? Start checking www.iconnect007.com, and www.realtimewith.com on Tuesday for updates, news releases, photos, and interviews straight from IPC APEX EXPO 2022.

And, like the Lone Ranger, wear your mask, too.

Don't Blink: The IPC APEX EXPO Time-lapse

01/31/2023 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
It’s a tradition here at I-Connect007 to set up a time-lapse for IPC APEX EXPO. There’s something satisfying, mesmerizing even, to watch the show floor build out and see the moment when the doors open and visitors fill the exhibit hall. Based on what others have said over the years, I know I’m not the only one whose favorite part is when the carpet gets rolled out and the whole character of the exhibition changes. This time lapse starts on the Saturday prior and continues through the Thursday tear-down phase.

IPC APEX EXPO Wrap-up

01/30/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
IPC APEX EXPO 2023 is over, and I think it was a successful show no matter how you slice it. There was barely a break in traffic on the show floor on Tuesday and Wednesday, and even on Thursday I saw people sprinting to close one more deal. Some committee meetings had nearly 200 participants; the meetings I sat in on were anything but boring.
