SGIA’s 2017 Printed Electronics Symposium will focus on e-textiles, with a day of presentations exploring markets and applications for wearable technology. The October 10 conference will be held at New Orleans’ Ernest N. Morial Convention Centre, in conjunction with the 2017 SGIA Expo.
The highly focused event is designed for business owners, managers, printers, OEMs and suppliers, according to Community Development Manager Joyia Marshall.
“SGIA’s Printed Electronics Committee chose e-textiles because of the way they're impacting the development of the printed electronics industry,” Marshall said. “They’re new and novel, and the business opportunities they present are growing exponentially.”
Agenda topics include market developments and projected market growth, advances in inks, textiles, substrates and connectors, production processes, and materials and standards.
“The Symposium is an excellent complement to the 2017 SGIA Expo and will offer ideas for your next electronics application challenge,” Marshall added. “After a day of learning about the e-textiles market, attendees can see some of those same technologies in person on the Expo floor.”
SGIA’s Printed Electronic Electronics Symposium takes place 8:30 am–5:00 pm, Tuesday, October 10, 2017. Tickets can be purchased during the SGIA Expo registration process for $199 (SGIA members and exhibitors) and $249 (nonmembers) through September 12.
