Display Week 2013: May 19-24, 2013
Exhibition Dates: May 21-23, 2013
Vancouver Convention Centre, Vancouver, Canada
Display Week is the premier annual showcase of the display industry, valued at over US$100B annually, with North America representing the largest market in the world. The annual Display Week Exhibition is the best event for the sales and marketing of displays and related products to the North American market, because it attracts the top companies and senior business and technical staff who make product management and purchasing decisions, shaping the industry.
Companies that participate in Display Week are viewed as technology leaders by the display industry, and by the international press that covers the event. Leading technology companies exhibit at Display Week in order to support their brand, conduct business, and train their mid-level employees on the latest technology, notably via the Exhibitor Forums, Sunday Seminars, and Monday Short Courses.
Display Week's strategic location provides the best access to the North American customer base of display integrators, including companies such as Apple, Dell, HP, and Motorola. International system integrators also have a strong showing, including LG, Samsung, and Sharp. Senior technical staff make attending a priority for the technical content of the Symposium and other events, while many of their senior business people come for the Market Focus Conferences, Business Conference, and Investors Conference.
The following Display Week 2012 statistics are indicative of the quality of Display Week attendees:
- Over 60% of attendees have a Master's degree or Ph.D
- 74% of attendees influence purchasing decisions
- 50% of attendees operate in a engineering or scientific capacity, while 40% are business-oriented
- 75% of attendees have a technical background, so Display Week is where even the business people have degrees in science and engineering
- Display Week: It's where the decision makers are!
The events of Display Week are covered by the international press, as well as leading internet-based blogs and news services. The SID awards attract international attention and the interest of investors, with the Best in Show prizes, the annual Display Industry Awards, and the I-Zone award for the best prototype. The benefits of such exposure can be phenomenal, Nate Saal of Tactus Technology commenting: "The show was a non-stop flood of people. We made some very good new contacts, and also connected with companies with which we had already established relationships...The buzz just grew from there. Within the week, there were more than 150 articles written, more than 2.5 million people who read the news about us, and more than 1 million people who watched our product video."
