Industry Encouraged to Submit Questions for Panelists in Advance

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA - What will have the greatest impact on the electronics industry in five years? Will it be technology, manufacturing, government regulations or global competition? The Wednesday Keynote at IPC APEX EXPOŽ 2012, February 28-March 1 at the San Diego Convention Center, will feature five panelists who will provide their unique perspectives on what the game changers will be for the industry.

The diverse panel includes Cary Wood, president and CEO, Sparton Electronics Inc.; Mikel Williams, president and CEO, DDi Corp.; Philip Plonski, managing partner, Prismark Partners; E. Jan Vardaman, president, TechSearch International, Inc.; and Bolaji Ojo, editor-in-chief, EBN.

Topics that will be covered during the keynote are: globalization and outsourcing; if there is a move for business back to the United States; new materials and nano materials; future products that will rock our world; and how will the supply chain make money in the age of the Internet.

"We're giving each panelist only five minutes to share his or her insights into the future," says Lars Wallin, IPC European representative, who will serve as the moderator. "This will leave plenty of time for our audience to ask questions and learn how these shocks and opportunities can benefit them."
