IPC APEX EXPO 2021 Rescheduled for March 6-11

Sep 17, 2020

With health and safety top of mind for all IPC APEX EXPO exhibitors, attendees, staff and business partners, IPC has made the critical decision to move IPC APEX EXPO 2021 to March due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19. Originally scheduled for January 23-28, 2021, IPC APEX EXPO will be held March 6-11, 2021 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif. This will be an in-person event with options for virtual exhibition.

“We didn’t consider the decision to move APEX EXPO to March, lightly,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “When events staff became aware of open dates in March at the convention center, we reached out to exhibitors and prospective attendees and asked for their input. Feedback from those we surveyed indicated a strong desire for a rescheduled in-person event as opposed to a virtual one.”

Mitchell added, “IPC will implement several infection control and prevention guidelines for IPC APEX EXPO 2021, including social distancing protocols, face mask requirements and daily temperature checks and other screening measures. We will ensure our plans follow the recommendations of public health experts and standards set by the federal, state and local governments. And, as safety guidelines and measures evolve, we will communicate these details as soon as they become available.” 

In addition to IPC’s safety protocols, the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) will implement a program of stringent processes for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention under its Global BAC STAR™ facility accreditation.

Registration will open early-October. Additional event details including networking opportunities, schedule, travel, and more is available at www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org.
