IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® reports that 95 percent of exhibit floor space has been sold for IPC APEX EXPO® 2014. The premier technical conference and exhibition for the electronics manufacturing industry will take place March 25–27, 2014, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
“Our exhibitors recognize that IPC APEX EXPO is THE event to help them achieve their business goals and that IPC brings buyers and sellers together under one roof,” said Alicia Balonek, senior director of trade shows and events.
The largest event of its kind in North America, IPC APEX EXPO sold out of exhibitor space last year and 2014 is promising to sell out as well. “Our number one priority is to give our exhibitors and attendees the best return on their investments, giving them an opportunity to grow their businesses and increase revenue,” said Balonek.
IPC APEX EXPO attracts a global audience of industry executives and decision makers in the ever-evolving electronics manufacturing and assembly market. IPC APEX EXPO 2013 postshow surveys from participants reflected that of those attending, 48 percent recommend, influence, or have key purchasing power and 32 percent make the final decisions.
One of the top objectives for attendees is to see new products. “This event is an excellent opportunity to meet new customers, promote your business, network with existing customers and sell products and services,” Balonek added.
Postshow survey respondents have affirmed the buzz that rang throughout the 2013 show: attendees and exhibitors alike met their goals for networking, technical exchange, education and sales leads.
“The booth traffic was excellent, the leads were strong and the excitement of a great upcoming year was something that could be felt. We’re looking forward to coming back again next year for IPC APEX EXPO 2014,” stated Scott Wischoffer, marketing manager, Fuji America Corporation.
