IPC APEX EXPO: We’re Back, Masked, and Ready for Business


Reading time ( words)

Nearly a century ago (1933, to be exact), the Lone Ranger debuted in a radio show out of Detroit, Michigan in the U.S. The character went on to become a popular radio drama, a television series, a book series, comic books, and multiple movies. Repeatedly, after the Lone Ranger had saved the day, townspeople, settlers, and villains alike, were heard to wonder, “Who was that masked man?”

This comes to mind this Monday, as I-Connect007 is here in San Diego, setting up our booth on the show floor for the exhibition portion of IPC APEX EXPO. Technical conferences and programs start today, and the show floor has filled with all the biggest names in our industry. Registration has been smooth and everyone seems to be wearing masks.

Of course, the Lone Ranger was covering his eyes to contain his identity; we’re all covering our noses and mouths to contain a possible viral transmission. There is that difference.

Early word from the technical conference is that things are ramping up nicely. The I-Connect007 team has been covering the weekend proceedings as well, including the multiple professional development programs and the committee work underway, including the well-attended J-STD-001 committee meeting. Early word from the technical conference is that things are ramping up nicely, ready to kick into top gear today.

We’ll be out amongst the conference rooms, covering the Monday activities. If you’re at the show, please stop by our booth and say hello. Following along from home or office? Start checking www.iconnect007.com, and www.realtimewith.com on Tuesday for updates, news releases, photos, and interviews straight from IPC APEX EXPO 2022.

And, like the Lone Ranger, wear your mask, too.
