APEC 2014 returns to Fort Worth with enhanced attendee features

Greg Evans, APEC 2014 Publicity Chair




The Applied Power Electronics Conference, which will convene March 16-20, 2014 at the Fort Worth Convention Center, continues the longstanding tradition of addressing issues of immediate and long-term interest to the practicing power electronics engineer. APEC 2014 will provide:

  • The best power electronics exposition.
  • Professional development courses taught by world-class experts.
  • Presentations of peer-reviewed technical papers covering a wide range of topics.
  • Time to network and enjoy the company of fellow power electronics professionals in a beautiful setting.

Attendees at APEC 2014 will find several technical features that will enhance their APEC experience. Following on the successful introduction of a mobile app at APEC 2013, attendees with smart phones will be able to download an App that will provide them with information about conference sessions and speakers, schedules of all events and exhibitor directory. The App will enable attendees to put together their schedule to make optimum use of their time at the conference. Other technical enhancements include:

  • Hosted Cyber Cafes in the exhibit hall
  • Digital signage outside session rooms to allow for updates and additional information about the sessions.

In addition to a world-class program offering attendees over 400 high-quality technical papers, APEC will again offer a slate of Professional Education Seminars on Sunday and Monday. In addition, there will also be a series of 12 Industry Sessions where important and timely industry developments will be introduced. The ever-popular Micro-Mouse Contest will be held on Monday night after the opening evening exhibit. On Tuesday evening, after the exhibits close, everyone is invited to sit in on one of the engaging Rap Sessions that always generate a lot of dialog. The Wednesday evening Gala is always popular and this year will be no exception.

APEC 2014 promises to be the largest APEC event ever – exceeding last year’s record-breaking attendance. This year we are planning on 3,500 attendees and around 200 exhibitors.

If you haven’t already made plans to attend, don’t wait any longer. Come to Ft. Worth and be part of this exceptional event – truly The Premier Event in Applied Power Electronics™.
