Largest Dedicated Commercial Conference & Exhibition
on Graphene & 2D Materials

November 18-19, 2020, Santa Clara. This event is the most commercially-focused conference and exhibition on graphene and other 2D materials. It is where companies unveil their latest technologies, launch their products, where technologists announce their latest commercially-relevant results, and where suppliers and end users from a variety of industries directly connect.

Event Focus

  • Focus on commercial progress, real application development, and commercially-relevant innovation
  • Connect suppliers and customers from a variety of end user industries
  • Accelerate value chain creation by co-hosting suppliers, intermediary compounders/formulators, end users
  • Cross-fertilise business by co-locating with highly synergetic events such as printed
    electronics, energy storage, sensors, and more
  • Analyst-designed agenda and networking opportunities

What Are Graphene & 2D Materials?

The graphene industry is approaching a period of rapid commercial growth. High profile large volume applications are beginning to emerge in thermal management, energy storage, polymer reinforcement, anti-corrosion coatings and more.

The number of suppliers has grown, resulting in increased production capacity worldwide. There is continued appetite for investment and the end user interest in graphene and its potential continues to grow surprisingly fast. Both top-down and bottom-up manufacturing approaches continue to improve and importantly consistency is being achieved and costs continue to fall.

The early use-cases will predominantly see graphene used as an additive; multiple applications are completing their qualification periods and coming to market. Beyond that there are increasing examples of the role graphene will play in next-generation electronic applications. Graphene is also just one member of a growing 2D material platform. We are beginning to unleash the potential for these materials and the commercial impact will be hugely significant.

Tipping Point Approaching For The Graphene Industry

Navigate the Emerging Graphene Market

Graphene is on the cusp of significant market growth; the opportunities  are exciting and diverse, each with significant potential.

There is often confusion surrounding the types of graphene, commercial status, and their target markets. This article will briefly summarise each and showcase what to expect at this event.

What attendees say about this event

It was a meaningful and very informative event, a good opportunity to understand the current global trend of graphene and its application.

Incubation Alliance

This event was a good combination of application-related conference talks and the opportunity for in-depth discussions at the exhibition booths.


The event presented the latest developments in commercial applications of graphene & provided a unique platform to help create the value chains.

Tata Steel

A great opportunity to network with a R&D, start-up and end-user company, all in the same day.


This event is really focused on real things, real devices and people are focused on concrete business.


It was the most business oriented graphene and nanotechnology conference that we have attended. We have made many contacts and also partners.
