8 SMT007 MAGAZINE I DECEMBER 2022 Nolan's Notes by Nolan Johnson, I-CONNECT007 Traditions: The Old and the New December is a month full of traditions. ey may be religious, community, family, or entirely personal. ey may be related to the calendar or business cycles, but whatever the reason, December certainly seems to be driven by tradition. While traditions oen get a bad reputation as stodgy and tired, they aren't all bad. For example, we use this last month of the year to prepare for IPC APEX EXPO. e upcoming conference and trade show is scheduled for Jan. 21–26, 2023, at the San Diego Convention Center. As we go to print, the show floor boasts 362 exhibitors. Of course, traditions have a way of evolving— sometimes for the better, other times not so much. e adage, "e more things change, the more they stay the same," applies particularly well to traditions. Do traditions change? Yes. In 2024, for example, IPC APEX EXPO will move slightly north to the Anaheim Convention Center. Anaheim will still be sunny.
