I-Zone was created to provide a special exhibit area for technology prototypes, proofs of concept, and new products that have been on the market no more than six months prior to Display Week.
Selected companies/universities/institutions gain several key benefits:
- Free publicity: Show your new products and technology to the entire SID community.
- Expert feedback: Hear what I-Zone committee members – professionals with established track records in industry/academia – have to say about your technology.
- Free exhibit space: Demonstrate your prototype in the dedicated I-Zone area of the exhibit hall during SID’s Display Week Exhibition, May 10-12, 2022.
“Innovation in the display industry has never been greater, and the pace of the innovation has never been faster, says Harit Doshi, Chair of SID’s I-Zone and Conventions Chair. “I-Zone provides the perfect pavilion at Display Week for start-ups and university labs to showcase their latest innovations. As we enter the second decade of the Innovation Zone and come back to a full physical show, I am anticipating an overwhelming number of new developments and inventions from small companies and universities who’ve been hard at work over the past two years. If you are planning to submit an I-Zone application to take advantage of this free-of-charge opportunity to display your prototype, I encourage you to submit your application early.”
