APEX Deals a Full House in Vegas
Juki CEO Bob Black said it was his best APEX ever.
Las Vegas, NV — According to IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries®, verified attendance figures from this year's IPC APEX EXPO® show an eight percent increase over last year with 7,208 total participants. The number of attendees at the educational programs and exhibition grew an additional five percent over last year to 3,887, but most notably, 20 percent more of these attendees participated in the technical conference and/or professional development courses. The increased attendance was also met with increased participation from companies on the show floor with 366 exhibitors, a 10 percent increase over 2010, spanning 112,820 square feet of exhibit space. The exhibition makes life for attendees like Steve Draws, a procurement professional with Plexus Corp., much easier. "This show is invaluable in helping me to research and evaluate products, and to make sensible, money-saving decisions on purchases for my company."

"APEX 2011 was the best show we have ever had at APEX," extolled Bob Black, president and CEO of Juki. "The booth was consistently crowded and we received double the sales inquiries of last year. APEX is clearly the flagship show of the circuit assembly industry." "We were extremely pleased with a very steady flow of visitors in our booth, all three days," says Scott Rushia, sales manager for Martin. "It was a good combination of people who came to the exhibition with Martin and Finetech rework systems on their prepared research list, as well as others who discovered us on the show floor. The days were full of relevant demos and we took some orders at the show."
