The IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS) features the largest exhibition in our industry, showcasing the world’s leading suppliers of products and services. When you visit the exhibition, you will have the opportunity to see and experience the latest technologies and innovations available for all your design requirements. There will be live demonstrations, new product launches, a new Executive Forum and plenty of networking.
IMS2022 in Denver, Colo., was a great success, with 450 exhibiting companies in 726 booth spaces. IMS2023 features more than 520 exhibiting companies in over 850 booth spaces, so we expect an even more robust and active exhibit floor in San Diego, Calif. California is home to hundreds of RF/microwave companies and San Diego is a perfect venue to host our annual event.
The exhibition will take place in halls D through H on the ground floor of the San Diego Convention Center. Exhibition hours are Tuesday, 13 June from 09:30 to 17:00, Wednesday, 14 June from 09:30 to 18:00 and Thursday, 15 June from 09:30 to 15:00. Registration will be held in the lobby area of hall D, next to the entrance to the exhibition. A Starbucks is conveniently located near the entrance to boost your mornings and coffee breaks will be provided on the exhibit floor each morning and Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. “Sweet Treat Tuesday” has become a welcome staple of the exhibition on Tuesday afternoons, providing all attendees with an afternoon indulgence.
The traditional “Industry Reception” will take place on Wednesday from 17:00 to 18:00 with a themed “beach party” vibe to help get you in to the California groove. Food, beer and wine will be served in the aisles and from participating sponsors booths. Attendees can also visit the “game zone” to compete with colleagues in an assortment of fun activities.
The MicroApps Theater is located on the exhibition floor and features more than 60 presentations from exhibiting industry experts. These sessions are 15 minutes each and take place the entire duration of the exhibition. They are grouped by topic to make it convenient for attendees to work into their schedules. The Executive Forum will make its debut this year in the MicroApps Theater on Tuesday from 15:30 to 16:30, featuring a panel of technologists discussing their strategies for addressing emerging markets.
There is no other international marketplace where you can meet face-to-face with thousands of RF and microwave decision makers. Nearly 90 percent of all IMS2022 attendees surveyed report that the IMS Exhibition is THE #1 reason for attending. This is the place to connect with the industry’s movers and shakers. Join us in San Diego for the Coolest Ideas Under the Sun.
