Each year, IPC APEX EXPO features industry’s most dynamic, innovative minds to deliver keynote presentations that are both educational and entertaining. IPC APEX EXPO 2023 will feature Emily Calandrelli, host and co-executive producer of the hit Netflix series “Emily’s Wonder Lab,” host and executive producer of FOX channel’s “Exploration Outer Space” and author of the children’s chapter book series, “The Ada Lace Adventures.” During her keynote on January 24, Calandrelli will present, “The Sustainability, Economics and Advocacy of Space Exploration.”

Space exploration has led to the development of various technologies that feed back into the economy and improve our lives on Earth. Without space programs, we wouldn’t have GPS, accurate weather prediction, solar cells, or the ultraviolet filters in sunglasses and cameras. In her keynote presentation, Calandrelli will address how space exploration is helping life here on Earth and provide an overview of the innovation occurring today, where we’re headed and the economics and advocacy behind it all.

Calandrelli frequently presents on the importance of science literacy, the benefits of space exploration, and the challenges for women in STEM careers. In addition to her morning keynote on January 24, she will also be the featured speaker at the Women in Electronics Reception in the evening, addressing why women are in the minority in STEM professions and what is being done to break barriers into STEM for the next generation.

Calandrelli's educational background is in engineering and policy. At West Virginia University she received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering. While at WVU she was awarded the Goldwater scholarship for research and Truman scholarship for policy work. She received her master’s degrees from MIT in aeronautics and astronautics as well as technology and policy.

Calandrelli’s keynotes are free to all IPC APEX EXPO participants with advance registration ($40 online and onsite after January 21, 2023). Meetings and courses will run January 21-26; the technical conference and exhibition will run January 24-26, 2023. For more information on schedule and registration options, visit IPCAPEXEXPO.org.

The industry news cycle seems to be picking up speed lately. Of course, 30 days into the quarter is about when public companies announce their results, and in the midst of this worldwide financial situation, we’ve got all eyes on anything coming out from our counterparts in the industry. I’ve noticed that global corporate results (Nan Ya PCB and TTM, in particular) do seem to be on everyone’s radar. In addition to financial news, trade shows are popping back up around the world—Europe, India, and a special report from editor Andy Shaughnessy, who took his own road trip to Raleigh, reporting on PCB Carolina, which had its own heyday this year.
