Company Visits

Printed Electronics USA 2010 will take advantage of being located in Santa Clara - a centre of excellence for organic and printed electronics by hosting tours to some of the leading companies working on the technology in this region.

These tours will run over the lunchtime period between the morning and afternoon Masterclasses. IDTechEx will provide transportation and lunch for attendees on these visits. Places on the tours are on a first-come, first-served basis with preference given to attendees on the Masterclasses.

These Tours are for BOTH Printed Electronics and Photovoltaics events.
The company visits operate on a first come, first served basis. These tours are extremely popular so please register early to guarantee your place.
Companies hosting the tour retain the right to decline someone from attending. This is beyond the control of IDTechEx and in this case you will be informed of this as quickly as possible.
