One World, One Industry: IPC APEX EXPO 2020—A Special Anniversary Year

This year marks the 20th anniversary of IPC APEX EXPO, and IPC is thrilled to celebrate this event milestone with attendees, exhibitors, and presenters. Their dedication to and involvement in IPC APEX EXPO is directly responsible for its success, and their efforts clearly illustrate how the entire electronics manufacturing industry comes together to “Elevate the Excellence of Electronics”—this year’s theme. This is the place to be to create new business relationships and opportunities and enjoy this vibrant, ever-evolving industry.

Not only are we celebrating 20 years of a successful trade show, but for the past 19 years, the Trade Show News Network (TSNN) has recognized IPC APEX EXPO as a top U.S. trade show. It’s a tremendous accomplishment for IPC, and we are very proud of the recognition. For the past

several years, IPC APEX EXPO has experienced both attendance and net-square-footage growth. Last year, the show welcomed more than 9,000 professionals from 45 countries. We’re looking forward to an even larger crowd this year.

Here’s What’s New in 2020 

1. The Fundamentals Program

The Fundamentals Program is a new option for those attending the technical conference. Geared toward adding value to the attendee experience, the program provides curated content covering the many facets of the electronics industry. Attendees will gain a broader view of the industry and will learn important terminology and background as preparation for content on new studies and technologies presented at the technical conference. Sessions will include topics presented by subject matter industry experts, interactive panel sessions, and opportunities for attendees to learn the secrets of success from our valued presenters. Program topics include introduction to IPC and standards basics, soldering processes, testing, circuit board design and fabrication, surface reliability considerations, and more.
