As part of the Display Week 2014, the annual SID (Society for Information Display) exhibition took place at the Convention Center San Diego from June 3rd – 5th, 2014. Display Week is the premier worldwide event showcasing advances in electronic display technology. The Display Week Exhibition provides a venue where display technology and product providers can meet with the engineers, designers, and business development decision makers driving the integration of new display technology into products. History has shown that the display innovations that first appear at Display Week are integrated into leading products within months.
Since Germany offers one of the most innovative supply industries for displays in the world, the Landesmesse Stuttgart GmbH organized a German Pavillion at SID 2014. On 144 square meters, the German Pavilion featured ten high-tech companies exhibiting state-of-the-art materials, components and manufacturing solutions for electronic flat panel displays. Peggy Fleming, President of the German American Chamber of Commerce California, had the opportunity to visit the German Pavillion to speak to both exhibitors and visitors.
Peggy Fleming spoke to Dr. Christoph Hermanns from MDI Schott Advanced Processing GmbH and to Vincent Jao from Manz Taiwan Ltd. Their feedback about the exhibition was very positive. Both representatives told Ms. Fleming that the Display Week 2014 was a great platform to connect with potential partners and customers from all over the world and also a perfect place to network with pioneers and trendsetters in the electronic display technology.
