||Cambridge, UK — Printed Electronics Europe 2014 is scheduled for April 1-2 at the Estrel Berlin, in Berlin, Germany — said to be the largest hotel/venue of its kind in the city.
The event's promoters state that attendees will be presented with the full, diverse range of technologies — pushing knowledge depth in key fundamentals and expanding it in new related technologies. There will be a number of comprehensive presentations that include visitor hands-on interaction with products and even an opportunity to see them being manufactured.
The event will provide an analytical, commercial outlook, taking into account market requirements, competitive technologies and development roadmaps.
More than 1,800 people are expected to attend this event, now in its eleventh year, to aid their critical business and technology development strategy decisions in this emerging, high growth area.
Printed Electronics Europe focuses on the commercialization of the technology, covering broadly organic, inorganic, thin film and flexible nanotechnologies. To that end, the event presents some of the world's largest user companies presenting on their needs and experience with printed electronics, and many are in attendance to learn how they can use these new technologies in their products.
Speakers will represent some of the world's largest companies who not only use the technology, but will share their needs and experiences with printed electronics. In addition, the state-of-the-art full range of technologies will be covered, with many world first announcements.
