Dubai Media Incorporated (DMI) has announced that it will be organising the first Organic and Printed Electronics Industry Conference in the Middle East and North Africa (OPE-MENA), which will take place between January 29-30, 2019.

The event will be held under the patronage of Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, and Chairman of DMI, and will draw the participation of more than 300 ministers, government departments, universities, academics, and experts in the fields of energy, technology, engineering, and artificial intelligence. The conference will showcase the latest innovations and applications in the field of organic and printed electronics and aims to encourage researchers and participants to explore new applications of this technology and use it as an alternative to several existing industries such as cells and solar panels.

Sami Al Qamzi, deputy chairman, Dubai Media Incorporated, said that hosting the conference in Dubai reflects the city's pioneering role in the Middle East and North Africa region and is aligned with the UAE leadership's vision of the future. "The idea of organising this conference will help form a solid foundation for Dubai and contribute to making the city a center for innovation and development. It will also ensure that we are on the right track of achieving national, economic diversification," said Al Qamzi.

During the sidelines of the conference, Dubai will announce the launch of an Organic and Printed Electronics Association for the Middle East and North Africa region. The association will open its doors for membership applications starting from February 2019.

Faisal Bin Haider, executive director of Printing and Distribution, Dubai Media Incorporated, said that the organic and printed electronics is a new type of revolutionary and sophisticated innovation that goes beyond the conventional approach of traditional electronics. "Compared to conventional electronics, these organic and electronic components offer a number of benefits: They are extremely thin, flexible and transparent and use a low-cost technique. Adopting it here will create new markets and products, as well as contribute to the development of innovative concepts such as wearable electronics and the manufacturing of Internet of Things (IoT), smart posters, solar cells, sensors, touch screens and more."
