BANNOCKBURN, Ill, USA, November 3, 2009 - For industry members searching for new solutions to meet customer needs in an incredibly challenging and competitive environment, IPC APEX EXPO(TM) 2010 will provide answers and access to the industry's best expertise. Critical areas like reliability and cleaning and contamination will be covered in various venues, along with sessions on emerging technologies like embedded devices and solar panel assembly. Information and online registration are now available at www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org.
Unlike any other show, IPC APEX EXPO features the industry's premier technical conference, standards development meetings, professional development courses and an exhibition with the industry's top suppliers. All events will take place at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nev.
"APEX EXPO was a convenient venue to gather information and generate ideas used in updating our strategic plan," said Phil Clay, Allendale Electronics. "Last year, we were able to identify and evaluate two new pieces of equipment that could improve responsiveness to customers developing new products, and reduce our costs. The networking events we attended provided a perfect opportunity to exchange ideas about business trends and possible approaches to taking advantage of them. Overall, it was a great 'one-stop-shop.'"
More than 300 suppliers with the newest products and technologies will be featured, allowing attendees to shop and compare equipment and processes all under one roof. "It saved lots of time for research of any equipment purchase," said Ashish Sheladiya, general manager of Finepitch Electronic Assembly, LLC. "We compared different equipment from different manufacturers and asked questions regarding their benefits and features. At the same time, we also learned about special promotions directly from the exhibitors, which expedited the purchasing process."
Access to the exhibit hall is free to pre-registrants - a savings of $25. Individuals who register by March 5 will save 20 percent off registration fees. In addition, registrants can save $200 off any paid activities by using the discount code APEX10.
Special early-bird hotel rates will be offered until December 31, 2009. Detailed hotel information is available at www.ipcapexexpo.org/travel. For more information or to register, visit www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org.
