IPC APEX EXPO 2021 Rescheduled for March 6-11


Reading time ( words)

With health and safety top of mind for all IPC APEX EXPO exhibitors, attendees, staff and business partners, IPC has made the critical decision to move IPC APEX EXPO 2021 to March due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19. Originally scheduled for January 23-28, 2021, IPC APEX EXPO will be held March 6-11, 2021 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif. This will be an in-person event with options for virtual exhibition.

“We didn’t consider the decision to move APEX EXPO to March, lightly,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “When events staff became aware of open dates in March at the convention center, we reached out to exhibitors and prospective attendees and asked for their input. Feedback from those we surveyed indicated a strong desire for a rescheduled in-person event as opposed to a virtual one.”

Mitchell added, “IPC will implement several infection control and prevention guidelines for IPC APEX EXPO 2021, including social distancing protocols, face mask requirements and daily temperature checks and other screening measures. We will ensure our plans follow the recommendations of public health experts and standards set by the federal, state and local governments. And, as safety guidelines and measures evolve, we will communicate these details as soon as they become available.” 

In addition to IPC’s safety protocols, the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) will implement a program of stringent processes for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention under its Global BAC STAR™ facility accreditation.

Registration will open early-October. Additional event details including networking opportunities, schedule, travel, and more is available at www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org.

A Show Full of Opportunities

Looking back to my notes from IPC APEX 2020, I noticed one of my comments: There were so many interesting sessions that I often found myself in the position of choosing between several that I wanted to attend in the same timeslot. This year was not any different in that regard. I am purposely glossing over the fact that I, like many of my friends, missed the camaraderie and opportunity to catch up in person while attending these technical sessions, and I look forward to being able to do that next year.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

I’m sure it’s just me being hyperaware, but I can’t shake it: Mars is where it’s at right now. Is it just me, or do you get the same feeling from the news? There are the Mars rovers—three generations of them still rolling, now—and a drone helicopter winding up for a maiden flight any day now. But that’s not all. There’s SpaceX’s StarShip, rapid-prototyping its way into a manned flight to Mars. And NASA’s whole “return to the Moon” project is simply a shakedown for the U.S. government contractors’ Mars flight hardware, too.
