10 I-CONNECT007 I SHOW & TELL MAGAZINE 2018 After many months of planning, IPC APEX EXPO 2018 proved to be a success. From revo- lutionary advancements displayed on the show floor to expert insights conveyed in technical conference sessions and professional develop- ment courses, IPC APEX EXPO provided the learning and connections that helped 4,574 attendees from 43 countries prepare for the future. The 479 exhibitors welcomed a busy three days of business development and quali- fied sales leads on nearly 150,000 net square feet of show floor space. IPC APEX EXPO attracted 9,169 total visitors including attend- ees and exhibitor personnel. With a focus on developing important stan- dards, IPC committee members joined to dis- cuss, revise, and improve documents that will be used to create quality products. Their hard work is important to furthering our industry. As they are volunteers, I appreciate the execu- tive leaders of their organizations for allow- ing them to engage in standards development, and for allowing them to participate in this year's event. Education is also an important factor in fur- thering the success of the electronics industry. IPC APEX EXPO provided the industry's larg- est breadth of learning opportunities from the Technical Conference to Professional Devel- opment courses and hot topics covered in the Buzz Sessions. In keeping with the event's theme, "Suc- ceed at the Velocity of Technology," IPC APEX EXPO 2018 featured nearly 100 technical papers detailing original research and innovations from industry experts around the world.
