• 3-day exhibition with the most influential companies in the business of displays
• 5-day world-renowned technical symposium, plus short courses and seminars
• Business, investors, and market focus conferences
• A variety of unique professional networking events held both on- and off-site, some by invitation only
• Signature functions: CMO Forum, Ribbon-cutting ceremony, New Product Showcase, Innovation Zone, and more
In three days, you’ll meet a huge variety of potential customers and partners who use SID’s Display Week as their primary portal into the display industry.
Why Exhibit at Display Week?
- More display innovations are introduced at Display Week than at any other display event in the world. Discover the cutting edge in the following areas:
Oxide TFT • Wearable Displays • OLED Displays • UHD and 8K TV • LTPS TFTs • Augmented and Virtual Reality • Haptics • Quantum Dots • Digital Signage • Display Manufacturing • Flexible Displays and e-Paper • Light-Field Technology • Advanced LCDs • 3D • Touch and Interactivity • Lighting • Films and Coatings • Projection • Display Metrology • Display Components and Electronics • Vehicle Displays
- More than 80% of Display Week attendees recommend, evaluate, specify, or approve the purchase of display-related technology, and roughly the same percent said that their attendance at Display Week 2016 will influence their evaluation, recommendation, or purchasing of display technology over the next 12 months. You simply won’t find a more qualified attendee base at any show, anywhere.
- In recent surveys, Display Week exhibitors and attendees indicated they wanted the event to remain on the West Coast. Accordingly, we have hosted successful shows in San Diego, San Jose, and San Francisco.
- Our show serves an amazing number of markets -- among the top ones addressed by our exhibitors are: Automotive, Aviation, Consumer, Entertainment, Industrial, Marine, Measurement, Medical, Military, and OEM.
- Display Week’s unique blend of technical programs and networking opportunities means your exhibition investment gets you not only visibility but key contacts with future clients, partners, and the best possible employers and employees. The recent addition of special conference tracks such as Augmented and Virtual Reality, Vehicle Displays, and Lighting has attracted new segments of display industry participants and partners to the show.
- Your exhibit investment is supported by complimentary advertising, press coverage, coffee and tea breaks, and more.
Society for Information Display is comprised of the top scientists, engineers, corporate researchers, and business people of the display industry, valued at over US$100B annually. SID was formed in 1962 to promulgate display technology, and that work continues today, publishing a monthly Journal of SID, Information Display magazine, and our annual Digest of Technical Papers, which are presented at our annual spring Display Week Symposium and Exhibition. These publications are available online without additional charge for members.
Thirty-one years ago, Dr. Ching W. Tang and Steven Van Slyke from Kodak made a historic technology breakthrough, building the first practical organic light-emitting diode (OLED) device. Today, advancements in OLED have made it possible to construct flexible displays, ushering in an era of “Ubiquitous Screens.” As the rapidly developing Internet, IOT, 5G, cloud computing, etc., have already made the “Internet of Everything” become a reality, displays (especially flexible OLED displays) will play a significant role in this technological revolution.
Deqiang Zhang is a graduate of Tsinghua University and held various management roles at Visionox before becoming the company’s CEO. His field of research is organic optoelectronics. Dr. Zhang has devoted himself to the research and development of OLED process technology, the construction of OLED mass production lines, and product planning in China for 22 years, promoting the industrialization of OLED. He has published over 20 OLED research papers and holds over 30 OLED patents. He received first place in China's coveted “National Award for Technological Invention” in 2011.

As personal viewing devices, head-mounted displays offer a unique means to rapidly deliver richer visual experiences than past direct-view displays occupying a shared environment. Viewing optics, display components, and sensing elements may all be tuned for a single user. It is the latter element that helps differentiate from the past, with individualized eye tracking playing an important role in unlocking higher resolutions, wider fields of view, and more comfortable visuals than past displays. This talk will explore the “reactive display” concept and how it may impact VR/AR devices in the coming years.
Douglas Lanman is the director of computational imaging at Oculus Research, where he leads investigations into advanced display and imaging technologies. His prior research has focused on head-mounted displays, glasses-free 3D displays, light-field cameras, and active illumination for 3D reconstruction and interaction. He received a B.S. in applied physics with honors from Caltech in 2002 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Brown University in 2006 and 2010, respectively. He was a senior research scientist at NVIDIA Research from 2012 to 2014, a postdoctoral associate at the MIT Media Lab from 2010 to 2012, and an assistant research staff member at MIT Lincoln Laboratory from 2002 to 2005.

In Japan, the total emission of greenhouse gases decreased from 1.393 billion tons CO2 equivalent (BtCO2) in 2005 to 1.321 BtCO2 in 2015, which is a 0.53 percent reduction per year. If this rate of reduction continues, we can expect the emission in 2030 to be 1.22 BtCO2. On the basis of the Paris Agreement, the government of Japan has set targets for the total emission of greenhouse gases of 1.07 BtCO2 in 2030 and 0.29 BtCO2 in 2050. GaN and the related group III nitride semiconductors InGaN, AlGaN, AlInN and AlInGaN, the so-called III nitrides, are one of the most promising material systems for contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions. By 2020, more than 70 percent of general lighting systems in Japan, traditionally based on conventional incandescent lamps or fluorescent lamps, will have been replaced with LED lamps, by which the total electricity consumption can be reduced by about seven percent. We are trying to accelerate the reduction of CO2 emission by developing new display systems using nanorod technology. Details of the recent development of all nitride-based and nanorod LED displays will be discussed. This work was supported by Aichi, JSPS, GIST, and GRL, Korea.
Hiroshi Amano received a doctor of engineering from Nagoya University. Currently, he is a director at the Center for Integrated Research of Future Electronics and a professor for the Institute of Materials and Systems for Sustainability at Nagoya University. He shared the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics with Professor Isamu Akasaki and Professor Shuji Nakamura “for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources.”
