IPC APEX EXPO 2012 – all over with great new products and happy exhibitors and attendees!

IPC staff was so busy on the show floor and in the conference and technical meetings that we don’t have much in terms of blog posts for you. Here are links to some of the coverage from the press who attended including information on new products and technologies:

We’ll add some more next week. You know that if your worst complaint in San Diego is the weather, it’s been an awfully good week. Thanks to all of our participants, attendees, exhibitors, committee members and leaders, the IPC Board of Directors, speakers, instructors, and the convention center staff who fill the coffee machines in the IPC staff break room.

    Hello Glen – We will have a postshow release this week or next, depending on how long it takes to audit & reconcile the attendance figures. We had 407 exhibitors. Here is a link to exhibition information for 2013: http://www.ipcapexexpo.org/html/2013/2013-exhibiting.htm. We will have a better feel for the size of the 2013 event after space selection at the end of May. For more details, please contact MaryMacKinnon@ipc.org. Thanks for your support in 2012.

    IPC APEX 2012 had some extremenly informative Technical Sessions. How can I get copies of the Technical Session Papers and Presentations?

      Hi Charlie – Thanks for asking. IPC members will receive free access to the proceedings in the IPC members only website. The proceedings will also be available to industry for purchase as soon as all of the papers, presentations & updates are compiled. We’ll post something online to let you know when they’re available.
