Feedback from past attendees:

I have attended a variety of conferences focused on flexible, plastic, and printed electronics over the years, but this year's Printed Electronics USA gathering illustrates that electronic devices, displays, and systems based on organic materials are reaching more mainstream status after years of research and development.

The organizers of the meeting describe the event as presenting "a wide range of interrelated technologies" providing "exposure to the full supply chains." They go on to say that the event will provide "an analytical and commercial outlook for these emerging markets, taking into account user requirements, competitive technologies and development roadmaps." After attending the first day of the 2-day event, I can certainly agree that the organizers have done a good job meeting their set objectives. Read full article

It is refreshing to note this conference continues to grow in both the number of attendees, and it's relevance to the emerging printed and flexible electronics industry innovations." Therefore we find the annual Printed Electronics USA Conference offers us ideal timing for the announcement and promotion of our new product introductions, because we know key decision makers will be attending the event.
