IPC APEX EXPO Innovation Awards Honor Outstanding Products and Services for the Electronics Industry
“The IPC Innovation Awards allow us to celebrate the innovators and forward thinkers who are changing the technological landscape of the electronics industry,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “IPC APEX EXPO provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for exhibitors to showcase the best-of-the-best of their products and services. We look forward to a rousing competition at APEX EXPO 2018.”
The IPC APEX EXPO Innovation Awards program recognizes two levels of honoree (Winner and Runner-up) among the following categories:
a. PCB design
b. PCB fabrication
d. Test and Inspection
e. Services, other (example: software)
Products and services will be reviewed, rated, and scored by a panel of industry experts who will provide a numerical value based on the following criteria: How is this product innovative? How is this product changing the manufacturing industry? What value will customers experience with this new product?
Each product will receive a cumulative score with a baseline value derived from the cumulative scores in each category. All scores above the baseline are designated as Honorees.
Once a minimum score is established, the Best of Innovation will be awarded only for a product or technology that exceeds the minimum score. If the highest-rated product in a category does not surpass the minimum score, there will be no Best of Innovation Award for that category. All award designations by our panel are final.
To be eligible to apply for a product or service to be considered for the Innovation Awards, companies must be an exhibitor at the IPC APEX EXPO 2018 and a member of IPC.
