During the week of May 23, TOYO, TOYOTech and other exhibiting sponsors participated in the Display Week event held in Los Angeles, California.  I am still waiting to find out the official number of people who attended but all told, there were over 250 exhibitors spread out over the 210,000 square foot area of the Los Angeles Convention Center, West Hall.

There was so much excitement in the TOYO booth as we proudly announced the new LT1000 Ion Impurity Measurement System at the show and to the world.  In case you missed it, you can read the announcement on our website.  You can also watch a short 3-minute video highlighting the product including a technical deep dive on how it works.  Here’s a snippet from the release which summarizes what makes the LT1000 so special.

The LT1000 provides measurement performance, testing accuracy and material type support that far exceeds any other solution available in the marketplace.

For example, the LT1000 has high sensitivity – with resolution in the parts per trillion range.  The traditional approach can resolve at the parts per million range.  Yes, you read that correctly.  The LT1000 has a resolution that’s one million times better than the traditional approach.

On hand in our booth were the engineering leads of the LT1000, Masaru Inoue, and Noriaki Oyabu.  We were also joined by our marketing and sales colleagues from Japan, Osamu Tomita, and Yoko Nonaka and from TOYO China, Jerhyn Chen.  Good thing we had a full team on board because during the three days of the exhibit, there was almost a non-stop stream of folks that came by to visit and learn about the LT1000 and/or participate in our raffle where we gave away not one, not two, but five different prizes.  Congratulations to all of the winners.  For me personally, I had the privilege of meeting and speaking to at least 100 booth visitors.  Take a look at some of the pictures that we took of the event.

On, Thursday, during the last afternoon of the exhibit, the head of marketing for the Society for Information Display (SID) passed by and praised the design of our booth display.  Apparently, during one of his marketing sessions, he specifically cited our booth and graphics as a great example of how to effectively convey a message to the show’s participants.   Needless to say, we were ecstatic.   So much so that we started talking about how to make next year’s show even better.

Well, enough about our booth.  I also had the opportunity to walk the floor and check out the emerging electronic display technologies that were being showcased.  No surprise, there was a dizzying array of products and perhaps soon to be products.  My colleague Jerhyn took pictures of some amazing technologies and products which we are sharing with you.  Take a look.

Next year Display Week will be taking place in our backyard in San Jose.  We look forward to it and we look forward to seeing many of you again at the event.
