Share Your Insights and Expertise at Flex 2019: Building Outside the Box 

Accepting STUDENT POSTER and TECHTALK Abstracts  — Deadline: JANUARY 25th

Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) are high-performance, integrated devices. Curved and variable in form factor, they augment day-to-day life with diverse applications, enabling us to interact with our surroundings like no personal computing devices have ever before.

As new methods for creating them emerge, business and supply chain paradigms are increasingly challenged. That’s what Building Outside the Box is all about: Speakers will highlight the latest technology breakthroughs and business strategies, and provide informative demonstrations of flexible hybrid and printed electronics products, equipment, and materials, as well as the unique electronics applications they enable.

The FLEX 2019 conference provides a great opportunity to highlight your expertise before hundreds of professionals from across the industry’s extended value chain. Please consider giving a presentation on your personal contribution to FHE innovation and the impact it is having on the future of electronics.


  • 700+ executives, product marketing managers, business development professionals, researchers, and engineers from the flexible, hybrid, and printed electronics value chain
  • 400 companies, universities, R&D labs, and government agencies
