The OE-A at drupa 2024: Spotlight on smart packaging, technologies, applications

At drupa 2024 from May 28 to June 7 in Düsseldorf (Germany), the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association) informs visitors and attendees about the broad range of application possibilities of the printed electronics technology. The focus will especially lie on smart packaging as well as technologies and applications.

 The OE-A booth is in Hall 14, D63, right next to the Touchpoint Sustainability, organised by VDMA. Additionally, the OE-A organises two seminars:

OE-A Seminars – Printed electronics presented at the drupa cube – Hall 6, D03
