IPC APEX EXPO 2018 attendees can meet with electronics industry innovators and connect with peers all in one place at the San Diego Convention Center, February 27–March 1.

From the exhibit floor to the classroom and everywhere in between, including the International Reception, First-Timers’ Welcome; Show Floor Reception and Ice Cream Social; Women in Electronics Networking Reception; Exhibition Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, New Products Corridor, and more, attendees can connect and collaborate.

Among the highly anticipated special events is a free opening keynote by founder and director of Google Ideas at Google and now CEO of Jigsaw (its successor arm with Alphabet Inc.), Jared Cohen. On Tuesday, February 27, Cohen will present, “Game Changers: Technology and the Next Big Disruptions,” providing answers to the question on every attendee’s mind: “what’s next for the world of technology?” On Wednesday, February 28, John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO, will discuss how today’s technology and business requirements are changing at an ever-accelerating pace. With millennials making up the largest workforce this planet has ever known, Mitchell will show how understanding the challenges and solutions in educating today’s workforce, is critical to businesses and leaders around the globe during his presentation, “Educating a 21st Century Workforce.”

In addition, tackling the hot topics that have the electronics industry buzzing, 10 free Buzz sessions will be offered. The industry’s top technical experts on subjects ranging from 3D printed electronics and Industry 4.0 to China environmental issues and a pulse of the electronics industry and business outlook will provide insights into timely issues surrounding each of these buzz-worthy topics.

“The special events at the show add tremendous value for attendees,” says Alicia Balonek, IPC senior director of trade shows and events. “Most of the events are free with advance registration — whether you register in advance for complimentary exhibit hall admission or sign up for our most comprehensive educational package, the All-Access Package.

“Networking in person makes a difference; and attendees have a great opportunity to network with thousands of their electronics industry peers from around the globe at IPC APEX EXPO 2018,” Balonek adds. “Improving their company's performance and furthering their personal success, making new connections and strengthening existing relationships—it's what makes the IPC APEX EXPO experience priceless.”
