The intelliFLEX Innovation Alliance will host CPES2018, Canada’s premier conference and trade show exhibition for flexible and hybrid electronics (FHE), from May 23-24 at Centennial College’s Conference Centre in Toronto.
“Just a few weeks into the new year, CPES2018 already boasts an impressive roster of sponsors, partners and exhibitors,” said Peter Kallai, CPES2018 co-chair and president and CEO of intelliFLEX. “We are working hard to spread the word and secure the partnerships across our industry ecosystem that are vital to make CPES2018 a rewarding and profitable experience for all our participants.”
Since last year’s event, intelliFLEX has rebranded and redefined its focus to support its diverse members. This will be reflected in the agenda for CPES2018, as the event explores all facets of FHE, including flexible, 2D and 3D printable, wearable, stretchable, smart textiles and flex-integrated circuit technologies, software and applications. Building on the success of last year’s start-up mentoring and pitch sessions, CPES2018 will again feature an investor panel, as well as a new launch pad program for startups to demonstrate their products. More than 150 organizations and 200 attendees are expected, with industry-leading speakers and keynotes from around the world. This will of course include many intelliFLEX member organizations that are working on a wide range of solutions to power the latest innovations.
In addition to two days of technical programming targeted at academics, FHE industrial companies and end-use companies, CPES2018 will feature 20 industrial exhibitors, up to 10 startups, 15 university and college technical posters and master classes.
CPES2018 has a number of association partners. They include:
