Calling All Cutting-Edge Display Technologies: SID’s I-Zone

At Display Week 2018, the Society for Information Display will provide a forum for live demonstrations of emerging information display technologies and related areas in an exhibit called the “Innovation Zone” (I-Zone) in the main Exhibit Hall. The I-Zone will showcase the cutting-edge demos and prototypes that will lead to the products of tomorrow.

The I-Zone offers start-up companies space to demonstrate their prototypes or other hardware demo units for three days free of charge at the premier display exhibition in North America, and gives attendees a chance to view best-in-class emerging information display technologies in a dedicated area on the show floor. The committee is actively encouraging participation by small companies, startups, universities, government labs, and independent research labs.

Proposals to demonstrate new displays, input technologies, and innovations in related fields such as lighting and organic electronics are now being solicited. Technologies should be in the pre-product stage, and demos that will be shown for the first time in a public forum at I-Zone are especially encouraged.

The I-Zone Selection Committee will evaluate submissions and select the strongest proposals to receive free space within the I-Zone. If their proposal is accepted, applicants must cover their own expenses, including travel, lodging, and the creation of a table-top exhibit demonstrating their prototypes. In addition, a knowledgeable person must be on hand on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, May 22-24, while the I-Zone is open to all attendees, to run the demonstration and answer questions.

The deadline for applying to the 2018 I-Zone at Display Week has been extended to March 23, 2018.

Before submitting your application, please make sure that:

  • Your product or technology represents a novel advancement.
  • Your product or technology is not on the market or at least was not on the market before January 2018.

In addition to filling out the submission form, your entry should include:

  • A 100-word abstract describing your project, its innovation, and problem it is designed to solve or capability it will offer.
  • A one-page summary describing in more detail the novelty and potential application for your product.
  • Any relevant photographs, videos (no longer than 3 minutes), or diagrams.
