As the global fight against the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is advancing, government regulations have been put into place to continue to decrease the spread of the virus. This includes large public gatherings and travel restrictions. This is why, this year’s Apex Expo tradeshow took place as a virtual event.
Through this digital platform, the tradeshow continued to gather the electronics manufacturing industry all in one place. Attendees took part in one-on-one meetings with professional and industry experts, all while learning about the latest innovative solutions.
Expanding educational knowledge has always been a priority for this tradeshow. This year was no different, as learning opportunities were available to participants of all knowledge backgrounds. This included technical conferences, roundtables, development courses, and new product presentations. Attendees had access to modern material and advanced topics, innovative solutions, up-to-date trends, which covered best practices and the most recent research.
