Smithers Apex, in association with the OLED Association, is pleased to
announce that the key players in the OLEDs industry will return to San
Francisco, CA for the OLEDs World Summit 2013. The 15th annual event will take
place September 17-19 at the Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, CA,
USA. The OLEDs World Summit is the longest-running, preeminent technical event
dedicated exclusively to the OLEDs industry - connecting researchers with
customers and manufacturers in both the lighting and display sectors.

“2012 was one of the most dynamic and newsworthy years that the OLEDs industry
has ever seen and resulted in the most robust and forward-thinking technical
OLEDs conference in recent memory,” said Andrew Smaha, conference director for
Smithers Apex. “Building off of last year’s success, we anticipate over 250 of
the industry’s most influential members to be in attendance this year– each
focused on learning, B2B and networking. Designed to connect scientists,
analysts, R&D professionals, materials suppliers, architects and designers,
manufacturers and CEOs, OLEDs 2013 will provide all attendees with key
insights into investments, markets and technology needed to take advantage of
OLED’s rapid advances towards widespread commercialization.”
