Graphene LIVE! USA is set to become the largest graphene tradeshow and conference worldwide
(Nanowerk News)Graphene LIVE! will take place on November 20 & 21, 2013 in Santa Clara, California. Graphene LIVE! will be co-located with the following tradeshows and conferences: Printed Electronics, Supercapacitors, TCF LIVE! and Energy Harvesting and Storage. The organizers are anticipating 2000 attendees and 150 exhibiting companies at this co-located event.
IDTechEx conferences are business-driven with a strong emphasis on the end user pull. This clearly distinguishes the IDTechEx event series on graphene from other academic-focused ones. Our attendees stem from over 30 countries around the globe and are predominately business development managers and other key decision makers.
Graphene material and equipment suppliers will benefit from immediate access to several key target markets including printed electronics (e.g., graphene inks in a variety of applications), supercapacitors (e.g., graphene electrodes), transparent conductors and OLEDs (e.g., graphene sheets).
IDTechEx seeks to create a competitive environment where different technologies can be readily assessed and benchmarked. For example, prospective users of graphene as a transparent conductor will have the opportunity to learn and evaluate first-hand, on the tradeshow floor, the latest progress with graphene's technological competitors, including silver nanowires, carbon nanotubes, PEDOT and metal mesh.
For prospective users of graphene as an ink, they will hear and see the latest progress with silver and copper flake and nano inks, which compete with graphene inks. This enables prospective end users and investors to evaluate different technological options and network with key suppliers.
Graphene users and investors will also benefit from leading lectures giving the latest developments and insights across graphene and all its related fields. Speaker include: Grafiod, Cambridge Graphene Platform, Bluestone Global Tech, Momentive Performance Materials, Cabot Corporation, AZ Electronic Materials, Vorbeck Materials, Xolve, XG Sciences, Graphene Frontiers, Graphene Technologies, Graphene Laboratories, Graphensic, Canatu, NanoIntegris, National Renewable Energy and 2D Tech.
Graphene LIVE attendees will also benefit from lectures on other allied topics such as printed electronics, OLEDs, and supercapacitors. P&G, Oxylane, Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, NASA, Bayer, Nissha, Agfa, Total, DuPont, Heraeus, 3M, Corning, SCHOTT, Boeing, Konica Minolta, Panasonic and much more.

New to graphene?
New comers to the field of graphene will also benefit from a thorough education, be attending our masterclass on the topic which discusses the technology and markets behind graphene and carbon nanotubes. The masterclasses will be accompanied by tours of local firms and research institutes.
Attendees will also be able to attend our tradeshow floor tours which provide a brief introduction to different technologies. They can see many working products on the tradeshow floor, prototypes in the Demonstration Street and production equipment at work in Manufacturing Street. They will also benefit from excellent lectures covering graphene and related fields, both from a technology and a market prospective.
