134 I-CONNECT007 I REAL TIME WITH... IPC APEX EXPO 2019 SHOW & TELL MAGAZINE However, I would advise China PCB compa- nies to come to the show a little better prepared and manned or "womanned" by people who understand their product and know how to sell it in the American marketplace. Many of them seemed lost when it came to why they were there, but there were many more Asian PCB shops at the show than American shops. This may have been because Americans were split up between IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego, California, and DesignCon in Santa Clara. And yes, that is my one and only criticism. IPC gods, please do not schedule this show opposite of DesignCon like you did this year or at the same time as any large global shows like you did last year. There are enough dates and few enough good shows that you should be able to work together and coordinate your show schedules. In the end, it was a good show for everyone involved and is still worth visiting or exhibit- ing at for years to come. S&T Dan Beaulieu is president of D.B. Management Group.
