SID Display Week was supposed to occur on Sunday June 7th and the organizers have postponed the event until August 2-7, 2020, at the San Jose Convention Center. It remains to be seen if the pandemic will push back the event even further or if it will be cancelled all together like many of the other events, such as Book Expo America.
Dr. Helge Seetzen, the President, Society for Information Display said in a statement “Due to COVID-19, which has had an unprecedented and unanticipated effect on all of our lives, we are rescheduling Display Week 2020 to help protect the health of our staff, exhibitors, attendees, and our global community; and to allow time for business operations to return to more normal functioning.”
SID is basically a screen tech event where E INK, Samsung and other companies tend to unveil new tech that will find its way into smartphones, e-readers, tablets and other products at some point in the future.
