Apple Computer Co-Founder Steve Wozniak will deliver the opening keynote address at IPC APEX EXPO™ on April 12, 2011, at Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Wozniak’s theme, “How to Foster Creativity and Innovation in a Technical Environment,” is a topic the Silicon Valley icon is uniquely equipped to discuss. Wozniak helped invent the personal computer with his design of Apple’s first line of products, the Apple I and II, and contributed to the development of the Macintosh.
The keynote is free to all registered attendees and exhibitors and will be followed by a book signing of Wozniak’s autobiography, iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon. In addition, he will also attend the PCB and EMS Executive Management Meetings dinner on April 11.
“We are delighted to welcome Steve Wozniak,” said Denny McGuirk, IPC president. “When we invited him, he said he had a special place in his heart for electronics manufacturing and was looking forward to meeting the people in our industry. Having a legend like Wozniak kick off our event adds another wow factor to our show, along with the technologies and equipment on display, and should be a big thrill for our exhibitors and attendees.”
