Following is a sponsored post from Smithers Apex:
Smithers Apex (with the OLED Association) announced the agenda and lineup for the OLEDs World Summit 2014 conference. LG Display, Novaled, BASF, Acuity Brands Lighting, Konica Minolta, DuPont Displays, Panasonic, Visionox, BOE, Philips Lighting and many more of the industry’s most influential players in OLED lighting and displays will be presenting at the event.
The 16th annual event will take place September 16-18 at the Claremont Hotel Club & Spa in Berkeley, CA. Smithers Apex says that the OLEDs World Summit is the longest-running, preeminent business development and technical event dedicated exclusively to the OLEDs industry - connecting researchers with customers and manufacturers in both the lighting and display sectors.
OLEDs 2014 will kick off with two pre-conference short courses covering lighting manufacturing and test standards for the SSL market and the commercialization of graphene, followed by an afternoon focusing on broader topics in the OLED industry; a full day of business and technical focus on OLED displays/materials and a full day of OLED lighting topics. Gildas Sorin, CEO, Novaled GmbH will provide the conference keynote on the OLED industry’s current ascent.
“After our most successful year ever in 2013, our advisors - who represent key players like Apple, Acuity, Cambridge Display Technology, Bardsley Consulting, SKKU, UDC, Eastman Kodak, Novaled, and the OLED Association – were energized by the advancements in OLED lighting and displays that were shared and have been working hard to ensure that the 2014 edition capitalizes on this momentum,” said Andrew Smaha, conference director for Smithers Apex.
“For 2014, we set out to deliver three full days of intense examination of the materials, technologies and strategies needed to push OLEDs into living rooms, cars, workplaces and everywhere else. This Summit is not a loosely designed exposition with casual attendees, but rather a highly concentrated business meeting where more than 250 key players from diverse organizations gather to share information and gain the knowledge required to build their business plans moving forward. Scientists, analysts, R&D professionals, media, materials suppliers, architects and designers, manufacturers and CEOs will all want to attend.”
At the OLEDs World Summit 2014, attendees will benefit from three full days filled with more than thirty presentations from the leading organizations in the industry including Acuity Brands Lighting, Applied Materials, Blackbody, BOE Technology Group, Discovery Institute, DuPont Displays, Konica Minolta, LG Display R&D Center, nTact, OLEDWorks, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Panasonic Corporation Eco Solutions Company, Philips Lighting, Solvay Research & Innovation, Universal Display Corporation, Visionox Group and XG Sciences. The international audience of OLED lighting and display leaders will also hear from Applied Graphene Materials, Bardsley Consulting, Cambrios Technologies, DisplaySearch | Solarbuzz, Grafoid, Graphene Technologies, Graphenea, Holst Centre/TNO, Institut für Angewandte Photophysik, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, OLED Association, Osaka University, Sumitomo Chemical Co., Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), U.S. Department of Energy, UBI Research, University of Southern California and Veritas et Visus.
