There are also many fields of application for printed electronics in the sports sector. For example, printed thermo, moisture or heart rate sensors can be used in sports textiles. Parts from printed electronics can also be used for wearables. At the Lopec (Large-area, Organic & Printed Electronics Convention) the complete value-added chain of this future-oriented technology will be presented.
Visitors can meet researchers, developers and manufacturers of printed electronics products and make business contacts. The trade fair is thus aimed at all those who are interested in the technology and want to use it.
Exhibitors include BASF, Continental, DuPont, Siemens, the Leibniz Institute for New Materials and several Fraunhofer Institutes.
The accompanying congress offers 182 lectures on a wide range of topics such as business development, applications for end consumers, the use of printed light-emitting diodes and market potential.
Last year, a number of sports companies took the opportunity to take a guided tour of the trade fair with a focus on the application area of sport.
