Wednesday Market Focus Conference (May 22)
Touch Gesture Motion: The 2013 SID Touch Gesture Motion Conference will focus on next-generation touch, gesture, and motion-based technologies applicable to the display industry. The conference will focus on future technology and interactivity trends – and not so much on what is currently available in the marketplace. Interactive display technologies are one of the most intriguing aspects of the display industry – helping to enable completely new usage models in multiple applications. Highlights include actual demonstrations from some of the leading-edge innovators, bringing together many of our senses – sight, touch, motion, and sound. This event builds on the three prior events presented at past Display Week conferences. The primary goal is to assure that the events are complementary – with minimal overlap. The objective is to establish a series of non-duplicative events such that delegates can easily justify repeat attendance with the assurance of highly differentiated programs.
