The Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association, a catalyst of Canada’s printable, flexible and wearable electronics ecosystem, will be at Printed Electronics USA next week, with Canada’s delegation at the Team Canada Pavilion.

Printed Electronics USA, the annual conference hosted by market research firm IDTechEx, is the largest of its kind in the world dedicated to commercializing printable, flexible and wearable electronics. There are 210 confirmed exhibitors, 220 speakers from 22 countries and more than 3,000 attendees expected. This year’s conference takes place Nov. 18 and 19 in Santa Clara, CA.  

The Team Canada Pavilion will anchor Canada’s presence at the conference. It is the result of teaming efforts led by the National Research Council of Canada, a strategic partner of the CPEIA.

This impressive space (Booth I25), located adjacent to the main entrance, will feature 10 CPEIA-member organizations that are putting Canada centre stage in the global PE industry.

During conference breaks, drop by the Pavilion for a live demonstration. You can unwind to the sweet sound of PE CPEIA member Tangio Printed Electronics will feature renowned composer and producer Phi Bui playing a PE-enabled musical instrument – a force-sensing membrane-based keyboard.

The CPEIA has made great strides to serve its mandate in building a Canadian ecosystem for the Canadian industry since its debut at last year’s conference.

“Canadian companies are making fantastic progress to develop amazing products and applications at the leading edge of printable, flexible and wearable technology, to create jobs and reaffirm Canada’s reputation for innovation on the global stage,” says Peter Kallai, President and CEO of the CPEIA. “We are proud to have so many of our Members representing Canada at Printed Electronics USA and as both exhibitors and speakers. Drop by and learn about their latest developments and new product releases.”
