Welcome to Display Week 2020, hosted by the Society for Information Display (SID). The 57th International Display Week Symposium and Seminar will be held as an online conference August 3 – 7, 2020 where attendees from across the globe will tune in virtually to get a first-hand look at advances in OLED, microLED, AR/VR/MR, printed displays, auto tech, e-paper, digital signage wearables and more. This year's event promises to bring together the brightest minds in the worldwide display industry, providing insight into new display technologies in development, as well as affording a sneak peek at new products that will be hitting the shelves both in the US and internationally within the next few years. The event includes the most influential companies in the business of display; a four-day symposium featuring renowned speakers, scientists and researchers, and hundreds of leading display industry papers from the international community; and the I-Zone, a unique exhibition-within-an-exhibition where start-ups, universities and think tanks from around the world will showcase advanced prototypes and demos of products and concepts that haven’t hit the marketplace yet.
