AltiumLive has been reported to be co-locating with the IPC APEX EXPO, the premier event for the electronics manufacturing industry being held at the San Diego Convention Center on January 22 – 27, 2022.
Now in its fifth year, AltiumLive is a one-of-a-kind PCB design summit, providing opportunities for PCB designers to learn and network over several days.
As John W. Mitchell, President and CEO of IPC, explains, “The opportunity to co-locate AltiumLive with IPC APEX EXPO is part of a broader initiative of collaboration between Altium and IPC. We have a shared vision for more connected and efficient electronics industry, and we believe that by working together we have the opportunity to help our entire industry to achieve a much-needed digital transformation.”
Ted Pawela, Chief Ecosystem Officer and head of Altium’s Nexar Business Unit concurs. “Design, manufacturing, and supply chain operations have all individually moved to more modern, digitally-driven processes – yet as interdependent functions they still largely operate separately. By more closely connecting our events, we have the opportunity to further connect the people, information, and processes within them to help the electronics industry to meet the challenges of 2022 and beyond.”
AltiumLive will be a hybrid in-person/virtual event in 2022 to make it possible for anyone to attend, from anywhere in the world.
The event has grown exponentially since its inception in 2017, now drawing thousands of attendees annually. The theme of connection is a major focus of AltiumLive in 2022, expanding the conference’s focus beyond printed circuit board design to connect with component and materials manufacturing and distribution, as well as board fabrication and assembly.
IPC’s world-renowned IPC APEX EXPO conference and exhibition gathers the manufacturing sector of the electronics industry, bringing together thousands of electronics manufacturing professionals.
Previous events have drawn over 9000 attendees, featuring more than 450 exhibitors and over 100 different educational opportunities.
From the industry’s leading technical conference and professional development courses to the innovation-driven exhibit floor, IPC APEX EXPO 2022 aims to provide attendees with the opportunity to participate in the digital transformation of the industry by connecting the traditionally siloed functions of design and manufacturing.
