Thank you to all who attended the 15th annual OLEDs World Summit!

Sony, LG Display, Konica Minolta, UDC, Panasonic, Philips and Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) and many more of the industry's most influential players recently gathered in one room together talking about the future of OLEDs - and only OLEDs. The continuous support and engagement of VIPs like these is why this 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.

"The OLEDs Summit is a 'MUST ATTEND' conference for those who want to learn technology and market trends, and to meet collaborators in one place." Chair Professor, Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU)
