Falmouth, Maine, November 5, 2014
Smithers Apex is pleased to announce its second annual edition of Quantum Dots Forum, taking place on March 18th at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco. The one-day event will cover market opportunities, developments in technologies, end user opportunities and challenges, innovations in applications and environmental issues related to Quantum Dots.
“Each year demand for Quantum Dots is increasing on a rapid trajectory, most recently following reports just a few days ago from Seoul revealing Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and LG Electronics Inc’s desire to explore improved picture quality at a much more reasonable cost than using OLEDs,” said Andrew Smaha, conference director at Smithers Apex. “The Quantum Dots Forum will bring together the world’s foremost QD technology experts alongside the suppliers, producers and end-users who are collaborating to drive a swift market expansion of the technology. The display industry in particular stands at a crossroads where high quality yet relatively inexpensive QD technology and market conditions are aligning. The Quantum Dots Forum is the premier industry gathering that will provide insight, analysis and opportunity research to those with even a passing interest in quantum dot technology,” he added.
The Quantum Dots 2015 advisory board brings together the expertise of Seth Coe-Sullivan, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, QD VISION INC.; and Jonathan Steckel, Lead Technologist, Apple. Session topics for this year’s conference program include market overview and industry drivers; how current producers are handling industry stressors and opportunities; supply chain dynamics and materials development. Additionally the conference will explore the voice of the QD customer; new and emerging applications; and impact on environmental health & safety.
The conference program will double in scope from the inaugural edition to include more viewpoints from the supply side and end-users of quantum dots, as well as flash talks and panel discussions. Quantum Dots Forum will immediately follow Smithers Apex’s 2015 Phosphor Global Summit, taking place March 16-17 at the same location. The co-location will enable the two events to share sponsorship and exhibition opportunities as well as applicable crossover audience.
