PrintoCent Industry Seminar – PRINSE’20, will be organised for the 6th time in Oulu, Finland, 29.-31.1.2020.


PRINSE’20 will cover topics including structural electronics, intelligent diagnostics and the emerging R2R manufacturing industry.

Plus, during the event week we will host several side events & training opportunities on screen printing and electrochromic displays starting already on Monday Jan 27th.

This inspiring international event will host 300 participants around the world, while offering an excellent setting for networking and matchmaking. More than 50 industrial companies will be presenting. To facilitate collaboration with the top experts from industry leaders, we will also have an interactive Innovation Market Place with matchmaking, company booths and demos.

Like previous years, the City of Oulu will host a reception and on the following night we will host sauna & hot tub evening at the Nallikari Restaurant, where you’ll have the opportunity to walk on the ice covered sea.
