American Icon Wins Popular Vote by IPC Members

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA - With all votes tallied from the special IPC APEX EXPOŽ keynote speaker election, William Shatner has emerged the clear winner, taking the popular vote by a considerable margin over the other candidates. The award-winning actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, horseman and major philanthropist will serve as the IPC APEX EXPO 2012 Opening Keynote speaker at 8:30 am on February 28, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.

One of Hollywood's most recognizable figures, Shatner has cultivated a career spanning more than 50 years with life inspirations that have taken him into myriad arenas. Perhaps recognized best for his role as Captain James T. Kirk, Shatner has numerous accomplishments in television, film, and stage, including Emmys, Golden Globes and SAG award nods. At the tender age of 80, Shatner, much like his horses, does not like to stand still.

Ironically, his real-life mission resonates with an all-too-familiar prologue to "seek out new life." In his keynote address, "Captain's Log - Boldly going where no man has gone before...," Shatner will share his life's inspirations, his drive to "explore strange new worlds," and his newly published set of rules to live by.

Shatner has authored nearly 30 best-sellers in both the fiction and nonfiction genres. His autobiography, Up Till Now, was a New York Times best-seller. In Shatner's latest book, Shatner Rules: Your Guide to Understanding the Shatnerverse and the World at Large, he provides a glimpse of what makes him uniquely Bill and he presents a number of rules that, he says, like his life are, "suitably unique, strange and worthy of some measure of wonder." While he admits that many of the rules are tongue-in-cheek, he stands by the fact that, "in their amusement, there is a truth."

IPC APEX EXPO attendees will relish an intimate and amusing visit with this illustrious American icon as he sets the tone for a week of exploring new research, new products and new opportunities to innovate and to boldly go where no man has gone before.

Shatner's opening keynote address on Tuesday, February 28, is free to all registered IPC APEX EXPO attendees. Following his keynote, he will sign copies of his latest book which will be available for purchase on-site.

The IPC APEX EXPO conference and exhibition will run February 28-March 1, 2012; standards development meetings, professional development courses and other show activities will take place February 26-March 1. For more information on IPC APEX EXPO or to register, visit www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org.
