IPC APEX EXPO Named In Top 25 Fastest-Growing Trade Shows Sold Out Show Floor Predicted for 2013

Jun 23, 2012

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® announces that IPC APEX EXPO® has been named one of the Trade Show News Network 2012 “Top 25 Fastest-growing Trade Shows in Attendance in the United States.”

IPC Vice President of Industry Programs Tony Hilvers says that the show met or surpassed all attendance and exhibition goals in 2012 and is now 90 percent sold out for 2013 with 11 percent more square footage sold than at the same time in 2012. He adds, “We are at 113,000 sq. feet (10,500 sq. meters) and we expect to sell out.”

IPC APEX EXPO was founded in 1994 to provide a cost-effective exhibition focused on the printed board industry. The event later expanded to include the electronics manufacturing industry as well. Hilvers explains, “This show was created by our members to meet the need to bring customers and suppliers together in an educational and mutually beneficial arena. Every decision that’s been made through the years has been made to improve the event for the participants.”

Over the years, industry members have found IPC APEX EXPO to be an excellent venue for networking, education and finding and comparing suppliers. “Being able to discuss technical details with various suppliers opened my eyes to how willing and able suppliers are to help solve my problems,” notes Joshua Garrett, process engineer, Minco Products Inc.

IPC APEX EXPO 2013 conference and exhibition will take place February 19-21, 2013, at the San Diego Convention Center. Companies interested in exhibiting should visit www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org or contact Mary Mac Kinnon, IPC director of trade show sales, at +1 847-597-2886 or MaryMacKinnon@ipc.org. More information on the Trade Show News Network is available at www.TSNN.com.
