More than 100 organizations and 200 attendees are expected to participate in CPES2017, with industry-leading speakers and keynotes from around the world. This will of course include many of our 80 CPEIA member organizations that are working on a wide range of solutions to power your innovation.

Master classes in various technical subjects

In addition to two days of technical programming targeted at academics, PE industrial companies and end-use companies alike, CPES2017 will feature on May 26, a third day of master classes in various technical subjects, as well as mentoring sessions for startup companies.


The CPES2017 website, with early bird registration and the call for speakers, will launch shortly. We will once again offer spots for academic posters, even more tabletop exhibitors than last year and feature the next edition of the CPES Innovation Awards.

“CPES2017 will continue to build on the success and positive energy of last year’s event,” says Peter Kallai, president and CEO of the CPEIA and chair of the CPES organizing committee. “CPES2017 is the place for PE industrial companies and end-users to meet and discuss how they can work together to commercialize new products and applications. We also hope to see a strong turnout from the academic community – this is the place to learn how they can link their research to market needs and opportunities.”

Agenda will cover the broad spectrum of PE technologies

Once again, the agenda will cover the broad spectrum of PE technologies and the value chain required to bring innovative products and applications to market.

This includes:

* 2D large area and 3D printable electronics
