So, what’s missing? Ah, that’s right, it’s time to start planning your trade show attendance. To help you make decisions about when and where to go, we’ve put together a list of industry trade shows. It has been two long years with no or few in-person trade shows, and we’ve felt it. 

Hats off to the associations and other industry leaders that have pulled off virtual trade shows during the pandemic. But let’s face it: Zoom trade shows could never replicate the feel and energy of a live show. We humans crave personal interaction, and live trade shows and conferences offer networking opportunities that just don’t exist on our computer screens. 

So, now we’re back in business and ready to hit the road. Do you have a show or conference to add to our list? Let us know!

In this conversation, Teresa Rowe, IPC’s senior director of assembly and standards technology, highlights what to expect from standards committee sessions at IPC APEX EXPO 2023. New committees, revisions, leadership, awards, and thoughtful pauses to celebrate achieving milestones are all part of the IPC APEX EXPO standards committee experience.

01/16/2023 | Charlene Gunter du Plessis, IPC Education Foundation
IPC has a responsibility to its current members but also in attracting and retaining new talent to the electronics manufacturing industry. This is no more evident than in the STEM event hosted by the IPC Education Foundation at IPC APEX EXPO. For the 2023 event, more than 500 students from nearly a dozen high schools are expected to participate in hands-on activities, touring the show floor, and learning from industry experts. The Career Panel Luncheon will expand across the in-person event as we broadcast and stream to schools across the United States.
