IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Attendees Speak: Heston Singh


Reading time ( words)

Heston Singh is director of sales and business development for Unitron

Nolan Johnson: What has your exhibitor experience been?

Heston Singh: We have been coming here for many years, and we had another good experience this year. If it wasn’t good, we wouldn’t be coming back. They have products that are needed for this market, so we’ll be back every year.

Johnson: What have you seen to be the trends among the attendees that you’ve been talking to?

Singh: Most of the folks, this year, are coming to see new stuff. Over the past few years, we are finding that because the show is in the same location, we’re getting the same people coming annually rather than if the show were to move around, you might get a different audience. That is the one drawback. I noticed that in three years, IPC plans to move the show Anaheim. I know these things take a lot of planning, but that is a good move, however, it’s in the same state. If it was moved back to Las Vegas, Nevada; Chicago, Illinois; or somewhere in Florida, I think it would draw a lot more new people and interest.
