To help attendees maximize their time on the show floor, IPC is once again offering the My APEX EXPO interactive planner. With this free online tool, attendees can view exhibiting company information, product and service descriptions, photos and news releases to find exhibitors that offer the products and services they seek. The online planner also allows attendees to schedule appointments with exhibitors in advance of the show so they can be assured they get the attention they need to get their questions answered and find solutions to their challenges at work.
“With 440 exhibitors, it’s important to plan ahead to make sure you have time to see the solutions that will provide the most benefit to your company,” said Alicia Balonek, senior director of trade shows & events for IPC. “MY APEX EXPO is a convenient way for attendees put together a plan, allowing them to make the most of their time in the exhibit hall.”
