Dynamic Change in China - Your opportunities

November 21

11.50am - 12.50pm
"Dynamic Change in China - Your opportunities" A series of talks by IDTechEx Analysts covering the markets and opportunities in China for key technologies including: Electric Vehicles, Energy Storage, 5G/IoT, Displays, 3D Printing and more.

China has disrupted many technology industries. Solar photovoltaics rapidly moved to being mass manufactured in China. The highest volume desktop 3D Printer manufacturer is Chinese. The competition has also resulted in driving innovation. For example, the increase in LCD display manufacture in China was one of the key drivers for display companies to move to OLED displays - and now foldable OLED displays - to remain competitive. Consumers have greatly benefited.

This forum covers three areas where China is making huge gains, often not reported in European and American media. Specifically, it address the activities in advanced materials, such as graphene and light weight materials; China's 5G and IoT activities and goals; and the strong focus of electric vehicles in China. The data has been collected by, and will be presented by, IDTechEx analysts who closely study the global emerging technology trends.

Women In STEM

Thursday, November 21

10.30am - 11.30am
IDTechEx is proud to host a panel discussion on "The Case for Diversity: Increasing Inclusion in Tech" at the IDTechEx Show! Santa Clara 2019. Over the past few years, we have witnessed a strong emphasis being placed on increasing the representation of women and minorities in STEM but the questions still remains on what more needs to be done to achieve parity. Our panel discussion aims to shed light on some of the experiences to date of women in STEM fields and why there is such a strong business case for increasing inclusion.

The panel will be held at the Exhibition Theatre of the IDTechEx Show! in the Santa Clara Convention Center on Thursday November 21 at 10.30am - 11.30am . There will refreshments served at the back of the Exhibition Theatre at the end of the discussion for both the audience members and participants.
