LOPEC has a new exhibition director: Barbara Ismaier. She brings a wealth of experience and expertise with exhibitions to the role.
Ismaier has worked as a project manager at ICM – Internationales Congress Centre Munich since 2005. In her eleven years at Messe München, she has organised and successfully executed a wide range of events of various kinds, from company events to annual general meetings and conferences.

Excited about her new position, Ismaier said: “I am more than pleased with my new responsibility as exhibition director. LOPEC is an event with promising business prospects in a young, aspiring market. I am looking forward to shape the future development of the exhibition and the conference and to experience how printed electronics will further influence all our lives.”
