Targeted Move in
Please be aware that IPC APEX EXPO is a targeted event, meaning each exhibitor will be assigned a specific day and time for move-in.  The target move-in schedule will be available by the end of November.    

Move-in Deadline
All booths must be occupied and completely set up by 5:00 pm on Monday, March 8, 2020. If exhibit space is not occupied by 5:00 pm on Monday, March 8, 2020 the space may be possessed by Show Management for such purposes as they see fit. Exhibitor will be billed for expenses incurred by IPC Show Management to carpet unoccupied space because of default in occupancy.

Complimentary WIFI is NOT available in the exhibit hall but is provided in all lobbies and in the meetings area of the San Diego Convention Center. Please note, complimentary WIFI is not available in the exhibit hall because the San Diego Convention Center will not permit IPC to purchase facility-wide WIFI for IPC APEX EXPO.  

In-booth cleaning and vacuuming is an exclusive service provided by the by the San Diego Convention Center. These services are NOT provided by Shepard Exposition Services.  

Although booth carpet is installed clean, we highly recommend you order protective carpeting for your booth or order one-day vacuuming to protect your carpet from debris that can accumulate during move-in.  

If you will be disposing of a large quantity of waste from your booth at the conclusion of IPC APEX EXPO, booth structures, large quantities of carpeting or any hazardous materials, you will need to make special arrangements to dispose of these items. Please contact the San Diego Convention Center directly  in advance of IPC APEX EXPO, to discuss disposal procedures.  If items are intentionally left in your booth either by your company or your EAC, and IPC incurs any fees associated with the removal and disposal of these items, you will be invoiced by IPC after the event for the removal of these items.  

Your health and safety are IPC’s top priority. We continue to evaluate and expand the measures we put in place. We are working closely with the San Diego Convention Center as they develop and implement their re-opening plans. We will ensure our plans follow the recommendations of public health experts and standards set by the federal, state, and local governments.

The following will be required for anyone entering the facility:

  • Face covering (covering both mouth and nose) at all times, except while eating or drinking
  • Daily temperature checks
  • Practice social distancing
  • Follow hand hygiene protocols placed in restrooms and common areas
