"Additionally, I'm excited to share that we're unveiling new digital components for this important global gathering to adapt to our ever-changing environment and encourage wider participation both domestically and internationally," he said.
The annual event promises to bring together the brightest minds worldwide in the display industry, providing insight into new display technologies in development, as well as affording a sneak peek at new products that will be hitting the shelves both in the US and internationally within the next few years.
Details about programming, exhibitors, speakers, educational sessions and other facets of the event will be forthcoming. The program will feature a significant online component to allow global participation if travel restrictions persist.
