IMAPS 2014 is the largest symposium related to the microelectronics packaging industry in the world. IMAPS 2014 will feature a powerful technical program, a state-of-the-art exposition, progressive professional development courses, another informative Global Business Council Marketing Forum and many other events and activities to share the latest developments in microelectronics. We will hold this year's exhibition at the Town & Country in San Diego. Being in a smaller venue will allow us to negotiate more with the venue and our decorator to help keep costs down for you, the exhibitor!
The Annual IMAPS Symposium attracts approximately 1,000 attendees who represent all facets of the microelectronics and electronic packaging industries. These include: engineers, technicians, R&D, purchasing, manufacturing, management, and many more. They represent the automotive, communications, medical, aerospace, computer, defense, homeland security and consumer industries.
- Reach over 1,000 buyers and specifiers in one place
- Generate exposure in this highly competitive marketplace
- Launch new products and concepts to the market
- Enhance relationships with existing customers
Expanded Advertising and Public Relations Reach - IMAPS will expand the reach and frequency of its advertising over previous campaigns and will include advertisements or announcements in both print and electronic media. IMAPS will also implement a press relations campaign to motivate attendance from readers of all electronics industry periodicals, with more focused attention on editors from Packaging, Wireless, RF, Military Electronics and Medical Device trade press.

Failure to pay the balance by July 18, 2014, may result in reassignment of your booth location or cancellation of the contract.
What Comes With The Booth?

Promoting Your Participation & Booth:
There are some great new promotional opportunities for your company and your exhibit booth at IMAPS 2014. Here are 8-9 ways below you can promote your exhibit and reach-out to have more traffic to your booth. Some important deadlines fast approaching as well…
Complimentary Exhibits Passes for your Customers/Contacts:
Exhibits Only attendance at IMAPS 2014 is complimentary for all. Again, they would need to pay for their own lunch, if interested in joining us for that. We have prepared an electronic “complimentary exhibit pass” flyer that you can email to your contacts as an invitation to visit your booth. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like this file. They can print the form and bring it with them to show in October. If you have contacts that you would like our staff to invite on your behalf, email Brian those lists and we’ll gladly contact them for you.
FINAL PROGRAM – Company Listing/Description & Products/Services:
Our staff will be producing the “Final Program” – the full technical program and exhibit directory distributed on-site to all IMAPS 2014 attendees in San Diego. As an exhibitor your company will be listed in this directory and you can provide a ~100-word description and tag your company to relevant products/services in the directory. The company description and final program updates will be due September 2.
Complimentary EMAIL BLAST – IMAPS Corporate Bulletins:
We have dedicated our CORPORATE BULLETIN emails between now and IMAPS 2014 to focus ONLY on our 2014 Exhibitors and Sponsors. These emails will be sent on: September 2, September 15, and October 15. We will automatically include one listing from your final program description (see above). If you prefer to have a different write-up/news/PR/”Come visit our booth” piece in the email, please send that to email@example.com at least 2 days in advance of these scheduled email dates noted just above in this section. The corporate bulletin emails are sent to our global database of more than 20,000 email addresses.
*NEW*ADVERTISING Options Only for Exhibitors:
Many exhibitors have inquired about additional advertising in the Final Program booklet that is distributed at the event to all attendees. We have developed a special offer this year to better serve our exhibitors and hopefully get you some additional exposure at the show. Here are the rates to PRINT advertise in the IMAPS 2014 “Final Program”:
¼ page AD: $400

PRODUCT LAUNCHES in San Diego:
We’re looking to offer a new opportunity to our exhibitors this year – product launches, new services announcements and the like during IMAPS 2014. Do you have new products in the pipeline that could be launched/announced in October with us? New services, products, equipment that you’d like to demo for folk…make a big splash and attract a lot of attention? We’re here to help you get some great exposure, potential customers and more. We’d like to even schedule time for appointments and the official unveiling if that helps. This is a new concept this year so let me know what works and what might not. We’ll find the best mix to help all of our exhibitors!
Exhibitor Slideshow Displayed on TV Outside Session Room:
We started this last year and had some nice inputs, so we are going to run a large flat panel TV outside the session rooms again on Tuesday and Wednesday with a LOOP of exhibitors presentations/slides. We will accept 1-2 slides MAX from each exhibitors with a “come visit at booth…” type of message. It can be an advertisement, graphics, or whatever message you would like us to run. Powerpoints ONLY MUST be emailed to me before Friday, September 26 at 5pm Eastern. This is just one more way for us to attract the attendees into the hall, and to your booth! Email me if you have questions or simply send your slides: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sponsorship Opportunities still available:
We have revamped our sponsorship menu this year as you know. If your company would like to expand its exposure and compliment your exhibit with a sponsorship, please let me know immediately and I can propose some options. From golf holes to bag inserts to lunch or a reception, we have a variety of options to fit most budgets. We still have opportunities to insert your flyer into our registration bags, for you to be the lead company for our exhibit hall reception, or to even host a special hospitality suite, beer/wine tasting event and so on. Time is running out though!
LOGO/AD to Self-promote your Exhibit!:
Many exhibitors have asked, so we have developed some “advertisements” for the IMAPS 2014 show. Email email@example.com for a BANNER AD and another format that you can insert into the footer of your emails, or onto the company website to attract visitors to attend and visit your booth.
Meeting Room for Exhibitors to Meet Customers:
New this year – we have a meeting room reserved at the Town & Country, away from the exhibit hall, so you can meet with customers, prospective clients, and more. If you need a private room to get away from the hall for a bit for a quiet meeting, just let me know. This will be available on a limited basis – MUST BE SCHEDULED IN ADVANCE. So you if you would like a complimentary room to conduct a meeting while at IMAPS 2014, please email Brianne Lamm at firstname.lastname@example.org with your top 3 DAY and TIMES.

Please be aware in particular of one of these unauthorized firms - Exhibition Housing Services - whose salespeople have falsely claimed to be calling from IMAPS.
