Printed Electronics USA 2015, the world’s largest event on printed, flexible and organic electronics, has confirmed over 200 exhibitors, more than any previous show to date – leaving only two percent of exhibition space available.
Printed Electronics USA is part of the IDTechEx Show! being held Nov. 18-19 in the heart of Silicon Valley at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. Featuring exhibitors from over 20 countries, the show is expected to host 3,000 attendees who will enjoy a first-hand look at today’s most exciting emerging technologies, including commercialization and the newest advances in printed electronics.
“The response we received following the launch of our stretchable electronic inks for wearable electronics at IDTechEx last year was outstanding,” says Michael Burrows of DuPont Microcircuit Wearables, a leader in the wearables segment. “This year, we look forward to sharing our newest innovations in stretchable electronics and showcasing some examples of smart clothing enabled by our technology.”
Lead sponsor NovaCentrix will showcase its printed electronics equipment and material solutions. Presenting companies include industry giants and innovators, such as Coca-Cola, HP, United Technologies Research Center, Jabil, DuPont and Bayer Healthcare.
Printed Electronics USA features several new, exciting attractions that highlight the emerging technologies in this rapidly expanding arena. “Demonstration Street,” for instance, will give attendees the chance to see printed electronics-based products they have only read about such as flexible LCD displays; and “Manufacturing Street’ will take attendees through a hands-on journey into the world of equipment that makes these devices. These demonstration areas will be running on the exhibition floor, with industry experts on hand to answer questions.
Ten winners of the prestigious IDTechEx Launchpad competition, sponsored by Qualcomm, will also demonstrate – for the first time - unique prototypes and products from early stage companies. The event will also feature the “Internet of Things Bus,” from Atmel – an actual motor bus on the exhibition floor showcasing the many diverse technologies and use cases of IoT.
Hosted by global emerging technology research and technology scouting firm IDTechEx, the IDTechEx Show! is a unique event that brings together multiple inter-related emerging technologies in one place, with eight parallel conference tracks on the topics of printed and flexible electronics; wearable technology; 3D printing; sensors; graphene; Internet of Things; energy harvesting and storage; and electric vehicles. The conference events also include optional masterclasses and tours to select companies in Silicon Valley on Nov. 17 and 20. For more information, visit www.PrintedElectronicsUSA.com.
