Initial Booth Space Selection
Online Space Selection for IPC APEX EXPO 2018 will take place June 6-8, 2017 for companies that secured booth space by submitting a contract and 25% deposit by April 21, 2017.
What do I do now?
Step 1 — View the Space Selection Schedule
Times listed on the space selection schedule are Central Daylight Savings Time (Chicago). Be sure to visit the World Time Server to convert your time zone so you don’t miss the call!
An IPC representative will call your company’s main contact (as designated on the contract submitted by your company) on your designated day at your designated time to select your booth space for the 2018 event. Each company is assigned a dedicated time period to select a booth which is based on lottery order, and cannot be changed.
If IPC is unable to reach your company’s main contact or your alternate contact at your assigned time period, IPC reserves the right to assign your company’s booth based on availability at that time.
Step 2 — View the Floor Plan
Please refer to the above LIVE FLOOR PLAN link during space selection to view the most current and up to date floor plan for booth availability.
Step 3 — Select Your Booth Choices
IPC APEX EXPO is a co-located event with dedicated areas on the show floor. Your booth choices must be in the portion of the show for which your company qualifies:
- IPC APEX (Electronics Assembly): Aisles 900 (odd) – 3900
- IPC EXPO (Suppliers to Bare Board Manufacturing): Aisles 100 – 900 (even)

Since the floor plan and respective booth inventory are created based on contracts and deposits received, you may not increase or decrease from your contracted booth size during the initial booth space selection. If you contracted a 10’x20’ or 10’x30’ booth space, the appropriate number of adjacent 10’x10’ booths may be combined for the proper configuration. Please note: “end-caps” are not permitted. In addition, Island booths may not be divided or combined during initial booth space selection.
Step 4 — Get Online
IMPORTANT: Please be sure to be online viewing the LIVE FLOOR PLAN at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time period and have your choices ready in advance of IPC’s call. Please do not refer to the segmented floor plans as these will not be updated during space selection.
The live floor plan will be updated with exhibitor names approximately every five minutes during the initial space selection process. Please remember to hit “refresh” periodically to ensure you are viewing the most up to date floor plan.
Booth Change Request Form
A Booth Change Request Form must be submitted by companies who wish to be placed on a waiting list for a potential booth relocation or for companies who wish to increase or decrease from the originally contracted booth size.
Please be patient, as not all changes can be made immediately. You will be contacted as soon as your request can be accommodated.
Please note, if IPC contacts you for a booth relocation you will have 48 hours to respond and confirm the relocation. If a response is not received within this timeframe, IPC will move on to the next exhibitor on the booth relocation waitlist.
