Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
New opportunities and answers to industry challenges will abound as leaders in the electronics manufacturing industry debut cutting-edge products and services at IPC APEX EXPO, March, 15–17, 2016, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In keeping with the event’s theme, “Forward Thinking for Tomorrow’s Technology,” a significant number of exhibitors will be introducing new products at the show. Exhibitors will also feature chemicals, materials, and equipment for PCB manufacturing, as well as design software and printed electronics.
“One of the most anticipated features at the show is the New Products Corridor,” said Alicia Balonek, IPC senior director of trade shows and events. “This year's show will feature nearly 350 new products from more than 400 exhibiting companies. As the largest electronics manufacturing exhibition in North America, IPC APEX EXPO provides companies throughout the industry supply chain with an ideal venue to show off new equipment, products and services. Attendees get one-stop shopping where they can talk face-to-face with exhibitors about their product needs.”
The following companies will be highlighted in the New Products Corridor:
- Henkel Electronics Materials LLC
- Nordson YESTech
- MIRTEC Corp.
- Orbotech Inc.
- Pillarhouse USA
- Rethink Robotics
- Speedline Technologies
- TEAM A.T.E.
- TOPLINE Corporation
- Vitronics Soltec
“With such a large exhibition, it’s important to plan ahead, so we’re encouraging all attendees to take advantage of the interactive agenda planner,” added Balonek. “This free tool allows attendees to navigate and search all products that exhibitors will be showcasing at IPC APEX EXPO, in addition to a separate search function specifically for new products, to ensure that their experience at IPC APEX EXPO is enriching.”
Exhibits-only registration is free to those who register in advance, and provides access to the exhibition and events on the show floor, including a show floor reception on Tuesday, March 15. Other IPC APEX EXPO events that are free to exhibits-only registrants include two keynote sessions, seven BUZZ sessions, technical poster presentations and numerous networking activities.

It’s easy to get distracted in an election year. A constant stream of polls, primaries, and political prognostications will surely dominate the media cycle. Elections are important, but they should not distract the 118th Congress from the important work of securing our fragile supply chains and rebuilding microelectronics manufacturing capacity on our own shores.
IPC’s efforts in government relations and advocacy have been pivotal in getting legislation like the CHIPS Act passed. In February, IPC President and CEO Dr. John W. Mitchell was back in Washington, D.C., representing our industry in a meeting convened by the U.S. Department of Commerce, where he discussed workforce issues in our industry and how to ensure that our businesses have the workforce they need. In this audio interview, he reviews his concerns and solutions on workforce development.
Sentiment among electronics manufacturers remains positive, despite minor setbacks during January, according to IPC’s February Sentiment of the Global Electronics Manufacturing Supply Chain Report.
