This venue features an ideal atmosphere to showcase your products and services to key decision making professionals in the industry. Sixty-Five full 8' by 10' exhibit spaces will be on display .The exhibits have sold out every year since 2006 and have sold out again in 2014.


Don't forget to have a little fun while you're visiting Arizona and Device Packaging! The IMAPS Microelectronic Foundation is holding its Fourth Annual Charity Texas Hold'em Tournament in conjunction with the IMAPS Device Package Conference on Monday, March 10 at 7:00pm. The number of seats at the tables is limited to the first 30 players. The Tournament will be held in the Ft McDowell Resort with all entry fees going to the Foundation.

And at the conclusion of the Conference on Thursday, March 13, be sure to join the 2014 IMAPS Microelectronics Foundation Spring Golf Invitational. The 2014 outing will be held at SunRidge Canyon's 6,823-yard, par-71, Keith Foster-designed golf course unfolds around the rugged ridges and shady canyons unique to the desert mountains that divide Fountain Hills from Scottsdale, Arizona. This "best ball" scramble raises funds for a great cause, and welcomes 60+ golfers to enjoy the weather, great golf course, and have a little fun.
