OE-A has an extensive, international network and is working together with various partners from around the world in order to strengthen the position of the printed electronics industry
Collaborations within VDMA
OE-A is a VDMA Working Group
OE-A is a working group within VDMA – the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association – located in Frankfurt, Germany.
VDMA represents more than 3,400, mostly medium-sized, companies in the capital goods industry, making it the largest industry association in Europe. VDMA is divided into 15 cross-sector departments, with branch offices in Berlin and Brussels, liaison offices in Brazil, China, India, Japan and Russia, 38 trade associations and working groups, international committees and forums, six state associations and numerous service organizations.
In order to strengthen synergies within VDMA as well as to encourage knowledge exchange, OE-A is working together with other VDMA associations and working groups on specific topics. These partner associations provide sector-specific expertise to their member companies, many of which are business partners to the organic and printed electronics industry. This not only ensures the best services for our members, but also enables and supports the (further) development of new ideas, technologies and partnerships.
OE-A is organizing its annual flagship event LOPEC together with Messe München. With more than 50 trade fairs in their portfolio for industrial goods, consumer goods, and new technologies, Messe München offers global trade fair competence in a wide variety of branches.
Munich, Germany, is a location with exceptional infrastructure for international trade fairs. This metropolis is home to global players, mid-sized firms and countless high-tech companies.
OE-A cooperates with a number of national and regional printed electronics associations around the world as well as institutions such as the European Commission.
