DisplaySearch and Meko gear up for DisplayForum 2010

Analyst soothsayers DisplaySearch and Meko are teaming up yet again to show the world what’s what in the display and panel market in a two day conference this November for the DisplayForum Conference.

Both specialists have been collaborating since 2002 to shed light on the industry. The conference will be split into two seperate days – the first is GLADE 2010 which stands for Green Large Area Displays in Europe.

The Energy Saving Trust will be headlining and taking a look at both retailer and consumer points of view with regards to its voluntary retailer initiative for tellies. It’ll be interesting to find out its opinion on the green questions, of which there are many, in the display sector. Which is why TechEye will be there.

3D Vision Europe is the second day. It’ll be headlined with a keynote from Sony’s Mark Londero, taking a consumer electronics perspective on 3D – something we’ve been critical of. We’ll be badgering him with questions there, too.

It’s sponsored by Lenovo, Samsung and Sharp – all keenly showing their faces as some right on the front line of display. EPEAT will be the silver sponsor.

Managing director at Meko, Bob Raikes, said: “The high profile and variety of speakers at these two highly topical conferences will make them essential events for marketeers from all sectors of the display industry. In addition, leading analysts will be providing the very latest data and forecasts for these competitive markets.”

It’s going to be held at the Heathrow Hilton, which means we won’t be sticking around overnight because the bar will be too expensive for our blood.
