Get Involved

Microtech Innovation Summit 2019 brings together the greatest minds in the MEMS, sensors, and microtechnology industry. The goal of the event is to showcase and discuss emerging, breakthrough technologies that are going to be enabling the next-generation of high-value products and applications. The conference will bring together the world’s leading corporate strategy, venture capital, innovation, M&A, and corporate venture professionals who are focused on MEMS and sensors. We’ll also have several leading speakers from academia and R&D labs who are driving cutting-edge research for emerging applications.

This one-of-a-kind event will provide high-quality touch points, as well as fun, interactive networking opportunities for the next generation of entrepreneurial technologists who are working on commercializing new products to advance society and quality of life. The event will provide a networking platform for leading technology and business minds, and will bring the MEMS, sensors, and microtechnology “brain trust” together.

We invite you to attend this three-day day event which showcase major scientific, technological, and commercial breakthroughs. This event is a leading conference on innovation, and also a highly inspirational gathering with a remarkable level of interaction and personalization.
