2018FLEX—From Materials to Markets


NEW!  2018FLEX is co-located with MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress (MSTC). This partnership adds a deeper dimension to the technical and business base of the event.  FLEX attendees have the opportunity to attend general MSTC presentations, and vice versa, as well as participating in joint networking events, raising the impact and productivity for all attendees.For the past 17 years, the Flexible Electronics Conference and Exhibition—2018FLEX— have been witnessing flexible hybrid electronics grow from a newly established technology to a rapidly developing technology leading changes in IoT, smart medtech, smart automotive, smart manufacturing and more.

  • Maximize your industry connection
  • Discover new technology developments
  • Collaborate with both FHE and MEMS & Sensors colleagues

With over 600+ attendees, FLEX is the premier event of the year to kick off 2018. From fundamental materials to applications and end users, we cover an extensive range of topic areas in 3 days packed with information. MSTC and FLEX attendees are encouraged to attend each other’s talks.

  • LEARN about the latest technology developments at the 3 days technical conference from 120+ speakers from FLEX and MSTC, we cover all the bases to make the largest impact on your R&D.
  • INTERACT with your customers, industry colleagues, and academia inside the bustling Exhibit Hall. Celebrate R&D in its purest form. Tinker with conductive inks and admire the newest flexible displays. Flex materials in the stress-testing booths.
