OE-A brings the future of printed electronics to CES 2019


Visit the joint pavilion and attend the OE-A conference track on January 9-12, 2019 in Las Vegas, USA

For the third time in a row, OE-A will be representing the printed electronics industry at CES – one of the world’s largest trade shows for consumer technology. Held annually in Las Vegas, NV, USA, it attracts 180K+ attendees, gathering over 223,000 net square meters of exhibit space and presenting more than 300 conference sessions.

The future of consumer electronics includes printed and flexible technologies
Numerous industry sectors, from automotive, consumer electronics and household appliances to packaging and healthcare, have products based on organic and printed electronics. Consumer electronics is currently the largest industry in which this technology is being applied. This technology can be found in e-readers, smartphones and tablets, and it is used to turn clothing and accessories into intelligent wearables, as well as making the operation of automobiles and many devices more intuitive and thus easier through the use of touch sensors. The adoption of flexible and printed electronics is being driven by numerous benefits – ranging from low-cost and robust to lightweight, flexible and thin.

On January 9-12, 2019 OE-A is the organization that introduces the new technology of organic and printed electronics at this international event. This novel technology will have a major influence on the consumer technology industry, especially in the areas of the Internet of Things, wearables and automotive. Special focus will be given to the integration of this innovative technology into consumer electronics. This growing market helps to bring more end-users to the printed electronics network, which will prompt closer collaboration between the product industry and the technology developers. This cooperation will eventually lead to the optimization of existing products as well as to the development of new ones.

OE-A pavilion and conference track to represent the organic and printed electronics industry

In order to introduce more end-users to its network as well as to share the advantages of the integration of printed electronics in consumer products, OE-A exhibits at its own joint pavilion – together with 11 OE-A members – to showcase their technologies and applications. Visit the OE-A joint pavilion at Tech West, Sands Expo, Level 2, Halls A-D, Booth # 43164.

Furthermore, within the 1,000+ speakers CES conference, OE-A will organize a conference track on printed electronics. Also, here special focus will be given to the integration of this innovative technology into consumer electronics as well as automotive & mobility, healthcare & wellbeing and smart living. OE-A’s conference track “Printed Electronics: Flexible, Lightweight, Smart” consists out of the sessions “Driving the Future of Mobility”, “Digitizing healthcare for increased wellbeing” and “Connecting Objects, Homes and Cities”.
