You probably know about the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC), the annual conference that focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business. This isn’t just a designer’s conference; APEC has something of interest for anyone involved in power electronics. This year’s conference will be held virtually, making it a perfect opportunity for me to attend. Here’s why:

  • In-depth education, from technical to practical and introductory to advanced, has always been the hallmark of APEC. The virtual format will let me take advantage of recorded content before, during, and after conference week, plus live Q&A sessions during the conference
  • With access to 16 Professional Education Seminars, 7 Plenary sessions, 3 RAP Sessions, 100 Industry Sessions, and more than 450 Technical Papers and presentations, I'll have a lot of information to share with our team
  • Since APEC is being held virtually this year, that means no travel expenses, less time away from work, and a quicker turnaround for sharing the things I learn
  • Registration fees are only 60% of the typical in-person APEC event and include ALL educational sessions (Technical and Industry Sessions, Plenary Sessions featuring seven industry luminaries, RAP Sessions and Professional Education Seminars)
  • Registration also includes a virtual exposition, so I can connect with companies about the latest technologies, innovations, and advancements
  • The virtual platform will also allow me to connect with peers and speakers to discuss the technical and practical information being presented
  • I’ll have access to the content even after the end of the virtual conference. Hundreds of hours of on-demand content will be available until July 31, 2021
