We are pleased to have a solid line-up of prestigious keynote speakers at this years event, noted David Hsieh, DisplaySearch Vice President of Greater China. As the most influential conference of its kind within in the China FPD industry, the China FPD & HDTV Conference continues to offer the most relevant information for hot topics to attendeeshelping worldwide leading solution providers to get closer to their clients and understand how to succeed in the fast growing market in the globe.

According to DisplaySearch, the market share of foreign TV brands was less than 20% in China LCD TV in 2009, while the Y/Y growth rate was as high as 180% for Chinese local TV brands. Because foreign TV brands only grew 14% in 2009, it will be beneficial for conference attendees throughout the display and TV supply chains to learn from Hisense, a top China TV brand, about how to grow their business in China.

Connected TV is also a hot trend in China. Skyworth is the first company to include USB functionality in its Coocaa Connected TV series. Both TCL and Changhong are very aggressive about internet TV, and have a joint venture to support their efforts. With a complex broadcasting system in China, the more knowledge a company has, the more successful they will be in the China market.

David Hsieh, DisplaySearch Vice President of Greater China will address new dynamics in the FPD industry, including the merger of CMO, InnoLux and TPO. He will also discuss how panel makers are rushing to build Gen 6 to Gen 8 fabs in China in order to secure the China market, and share his insight on how business models in China will change in future.

In its fourth year in China, the event is known for bringing together top display electronics manufacturers and suppliers, along with industry and financial analysts from around the world to address the latest challenges, opportunities and trends for flat panel TVs, 3D and internet TV, as well as panel supply/demand, LED backlight supply chain and cost analysis.
