Display Week is the once a year, can’t-miss event for the electronic information displays industry, a $100 billion/year industry. The exhibition is the premier showcase for global information display companies and researchers to unveil cutting-edge developments in display technology. More display innovations are introduced year after year at Display Week than at any other display event in the world. Display Week is where the world got its first look at technologies that have shaped the display industry into what it is today; that is, liquid crystal display (LCD) technology, plasma display panel (PDP) technology, organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology, and high definition TV, just to name a few. Display Week is also where emerging industry trends such as 3-D, touch and interfactivity, flexible and e-paper displays, solid state lighting, digital signage, and plastic electronics are brought to the forefront of the display industry. First looks like these are why over 6,500 attendees will flock to Vancouver for Display Week 2013. If your company is involved in any aspect of displays, including display electronics, components, systems, services, manufacturing equipment, or applications, Display Week 2013 is the place to garner worldwide recognition and grow your business on a global scale.
