The LG showcase is very much like a trade show stand, but brought to nice local hotel meeting spaces. There’s food, something called Coffee Cuppings(???), and education sessions. OLED, as you might expect, will be a big focal point.
Rival Samsung is in the midst of its shipping-container/tailgating Resolution road show and NEC tends to have a huge showcase in NYC in late October.
