Smart Haptics 2020

We are excited to announce that we have made the decision to transform Smart Haptics 2020 into a fully virtual event! We believe this is the best option to provide our attendees, speakers, and sponsors with the certainty they need to plan their participation and maximize the value from the event in a safe and reliable way.

Rather than trying to replicate an online version of the live event, we will be making some changes to enhance the experience and leverage online tools to maximize the value you can receive from the event and make the most of your participation.

Smart Haptics 2020 will feature presentations designed to engage and inform the haptics industry, through case studies and panel discussions that will provide the opportunity for attendees to both experience and explore the latest technologies and emerging applications.

The 2019 event brought together multiple end-use industries - including medical, automotive, mobile, gaming, AR/VR, and more - to explore the innovative solutions and emerging technologies that are redefining the future of tactual perception and touch feedback technology.
  • Network with industry peers and senior representatives from some of the biggest names in the haptics industry
  • Hear from companies as they share valuable insight into the key topics and trends that are shaping the future of the haptics market; previous speakers include Facebook, Microsoft Research, BMW Group, Immersion, Lofelt, Tanvas, HaptX, Nanoport Technology, Alps Alpine, and many more
  • Gain a comprehensive overview of key market trends, challenges, new opportunities, and emerging innovations through two full days of thoughtfully designed program sessions
  • Connect with new business contacts during dedicated networking breaks and an exclusive evening drinks reception
