IPC APEX EXPO 2015 Keynote Presentations will Inspire, Enlighten and Entertain

Dec 04, 2014

Each year, IPC APEX EXPO features industry’s most dynamic, innovative minds to deliver keynote presentations that are inspirational, educational and entertaining. IPC APEX EXPO 2015 will feature Robbie Bach, former president of entertainment & devices at Microsoft, Xbox visionary and civic activist, as the opening keynote presenter on Tuesday, February 24, 2015. Bach will present, “The Xbox Story: Lessons in Strategy, Team Management and Entrepreneurship.

Bach will speak from his experience as Microsoft’s chief Xbox officer, and take the audience behind the scenes at Microsoft. He’ll share the triumph of a strategic process that brought together a disparate group of talented individuals that transformed into a powerful team and applied entrepreneurship principles to build a successful consumer business within the larger Microsoft structure. In addition, Bach will share his insights on the Xbox saga – from garage-shop inception, through numerous crises and challenges, to ultimate business success.

On Wednesday, February 25, Stanton Friedman, nuclear physicist, lecturer and UFO researcher, will challenge attendees on their knowledge of UFOs (unidentified flying objects) as he draws on more than 40 years of research on UFOs as well as his work on a wide variety of classified advanced nuclear and space systems. During his presentation, “Flying Saucers and Science/Science was Wrong,” Friedman will answer a number of physics questions in layman’s terms, and establish that travel to nearby stars is within reach without violating the laws of physics. The audience will journey with Friedman to locations in the universe where aliens reside, learn why they’ve come to Earth and their motives to cover-up their visits. 

Keynote presentations are complimentary to all registered IPC APEX EXPO attendees. The IPC APEX EXPO conference and exhibition will run February 24–26, 2015. Standards development meetings, professional development courses and other show activities will take place February 22–26. Access to the exhibit hall is complimentary to pre-registrants ($35 on-site). For more information on IPC APEX EXPO and to register, visit
