Organizers of the IPC Apex Expo have announced that this year’s event, which took place from 25–27 January, saw 282 exhibitors and over 3,600 visitors convene over 108,300 square feet of floor space in San Diego.

“From revolutionary innovations displayed on the show floor to expert insights conveyed in technical conference sessions, professional development courses and standards development committee meetings, IPC Apex Expo 2022 provided the education and networking connections that helped 3,647 visitors address today’s business challenges and prepare for their factories of future,” IPC said.

In keeping with the event’s theme, ‘Lead, Drive, Achieve Digital Transcendence,’ the technical conference featured 104 technical papers detailing original research and innovations from industry experts around the world and opportunities for learning abounded. For 2022, IPC’s Technical Program Committee expanded the conference to four tracks of high-quality, peer-reviewed content from 18 countries, setting a very high bar for the papers delivered. Those four tracks focused on factory of the future implementation; PCB fab and materials; quality, reliability, test, and inspection; and assembly materials and environment.

“Attending IPC Apex Expo is the most efficient way to learn about new equipment and processes that can help make my job easier,” said Randy Bremner, Northrop Grumman. “All the experts are there; we were able to meet in person this year and I got all of my questions answered in one place. It’s truly one-stop learning in classrooms and shopping on the show floor.”

IPC reported similar positive feedback from exhibitors. “Our team feels this was the best IPC Apex Expo we have participated in,” said John Lee, Insulectro. “Yes, due to COVID, attendance was a little light, but we had top quality opportunities to meet with customers, prospects, and suppliers.

“Our experience at this year’s show was much better than anticipated,” Jason Spera of Aegis Software, was reported as saying. “We came to the show enthusiastic but wondering frankly what would happen and how things would go, but IPC did a brilliant job handling this year’s event. The attendance at our booth was far in excess of what we expected.”

“The January omicron surge provoked more than a few questions about what to expect at this year’s [event],” said John W. Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “As I traversed the San Diego convention center last week, the answer was clear, a lot of smiles. Yes, they were hidden behind masks but more than evident in the eyes of everyone with whom I interacted. Attendees were thrilled to back together in-person—sharing ideas as freely as elbow bumps. IPC is a community and IPC Apex Expo the place we build it. It was great to be back!”

In 2023, IPC Apex Expo will return to the San Diego Convention Center from 21–26 January 2023.
