In all, there were 18 exhibiting international companies, representing 12 nations including: Australia, China, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Korea, Netherlands, Slovenia, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. The IBEX Education Conference had more than 300 registrants who participated in over 40 pre-conference sessions and technical seminars. Additionally, hundreds of visitors took advantage of the free workshops hosted in The Tech Talk Theater on the show floor.

"It's been great to get back here, see all the builders and exhibitors," said Charlie Ryan, East Penn. "It's such a special industry and we're just so happy that we're able to be back together this year."

"My favorite thing about IBEX has been the networking and seeing everyone in person after two years of not being able to," said Allyson Spease, Domestic Customer Service & Marketing, Hawkeye Industries. "We were able to get hands-on experience and see some innovative new products in person."
