Future focus at IPC APEX EXPO

EMP Handbook 2015 News

Changing technologies that are driving the electronics industry will take centre stage throughout the IPC APEX EXPO 2015 technical conference and professional development sessions, which will take place February 22 – 26 at the San Diego Convention Centre in San Diego, California.

In keeping with the event’s theme – ‘Upgrade Your Tech-NOW-ledgy’ – the technical conference will feature approximately 100 technical papers detailing original research and innovations from industry experts around the world. Subject matter experts will cover topics in the areas of board fabrication and design, electronics assembly and test.

Attendees interested in learning more about best practices in design, lead-free technologies, materials, process improvement, solder-joint reliability, PCB fabrication and materials, quality and reliability and more, can choose from more than 30 professional development courses that go beyond theory to provide practical solutions that can be implemented immediately.

In addition, IPC APEX EXPO features many complementary activities, including: keynotes on the Xbox story with lessons in strategy, team management and entrepreneurship, presented by Robbie Bach, former president of entertainment and devices at Microsoft, Xbox visionary and civic activist; and a look at extraterrestrials and how they fit into the world of science, presented by Stanton Friedman, nuclear physicist, lecturer and UFO researcher; technical BUZZ sessions; poster presentations; and several networking opportunities.

On the show floor, product innovations from more than 440 exhibitors will be on display and the event’s highly popular World Championship Hand Soldering Competition will again be featured.

Access to the exhibit hall is free to pre-registrants, a saving of $50 over on-site registration. Attendees who register by 30 January will save 20% off registration fees. In addition, those who register for the all-access package will receive a significant percentage off á la carte options.

More information about IPC APEX EXPO 2015, including details on education and technology, network opportunities, show floor activities, schedule, travel and more is available at www.ipcapexexpo.org
