IPC APEX EXPO 2021 will be offered virtually on March 8-12, 2021. “Given ongoing COVID-19 health and safety concerns and continued restrictions for large gatherings and events in California, it was not feasible to safely convene the nearly 9,000 expected participants at IPC APEX EXPO 2021,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “The event will now take place in a safe, all-virtual format.”

While the event is going virtual, organizers report that IPC APEX EXPO will still be the place to connect, collaborate, and learn. The event’s virtual platform will allow attendees, exhibitors, and speakers to easily navigate more than 100 technical conference sessions, professional development courses, and product demonstrations, as well as schedule one-on-one meetings with exhibitors. Technical conference sessions will be available to registered attendees for replay, providing the opportunity to take advantage of education for 90 days after the event.

Rounding out the immersive experience, attendees can attend multiple keynotes, a “meet and greet” with IPC Hall of Famers and Emerging Engineers, participate in a virtual trivia event, and learn about cutting-edge products and technologies during daily exhibitor new product introductions. “Be it in person or via an online platform, it is IPC’s goal to maintain IPC APEX EXPO’s position as the premier event for the electronics manufacturing industry, providing practical applications for learning—knowledge that attendees can immediately apply to their work and as well as far-reaching insights that can be applied toward implementing future technologies,” said Mitchell. “Wherever in the world you may be located, IPC APEX EXPO 2021 is the place to be.”
