Annual Canadian Printed Electronics Show postponed until the Fall

In compliance with Canada’s federal, provincial and municipal governments urging to help reduce the risk and spread of the Coronavirus, the team at IntelliFLEX (Ottawa, Ontario) has decided “to put the safety of our community first and will be postponing our Annual Canadian Printed Electronics Show. We hope to have CPES2020 return in the Fall – in late September or in October.”

The event was originally scheduled for June 9-10 at the Rose Theatre in Brampton, Ontario. Each year, CPES2020 explores the broad spectrum of flexible, printable and hybrid electronics and the value chain required to bring innovative products and applications to market. The annual event attracts over 200 attendees from over 150 innovative organizations – including senior decision-makers, tech developers and end-users from industries such as automotive, healthcare and aerospace. CPES has grown into an internationally recognized event, having previously hosted delegations from the U.S., Taiwan, France and Greece.

From wearables to artificial intelligence, printed electronics is a key technology enabling the Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Everything (IoE). Attendees share ideas and gain insights that will make a difference to their teams and their organizations. Participants include industrial companies active in printable, flexible and hybrid electronics, end users and brand owners eager to add intelligence to their products, academic and public-sector researchers who can align their work with market needs and find new opportunities for collaboration with their peers and with industry partners, and many, many more. We’ll keep you posted regarding any future announcements.
