Could there be a more welcome year in recent memory than 2021? If there’s one thing most of us can agree on, it’s that we want 2020 squarely in our rearview mirror as we speed ahead with a fresh, new start. This past year has brought with it much reflection, change and even some consternation.
But it’s also given us an opportunity to examine what’s most valuable in our lives and cling to the promise of a brighter future.
As we look toward 2021, the Editorial Team at I-Connect007 couldn’t be more excited about the focus we’ve chosen for our magazine content. We’ll be introducing and concentrating on the idea of “continuous improvement,” providing valuable insight into the practices and ideas that make you and your businesses successful.
So, stay tuned for an exciting year. Thank you for taking this journey with us!

What goes down must also come up. This is not the idiom we’re used to hearing, but I’d like to apply it to IPC APEX EXPO 2023. After a few years of lower attendance numbers due to the COVID pandemic, 2023 ushered in a re-invigorated group of attendees, exhibitors, speakers, event contractors, and staff to the show floor and meeting rooms. IPC APEX EXPO 2023 was fueled by the possibilities of new advances in electronics manufacturing.
