Oppenheimer’s First Emerging Innovations Conference On September 17th Displayed Next-Gen Display & Touch Technologies To Institutional Investors

Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., a unit of Oppenheimer Holdings (NYSE:OPY), held its inaugural Emerging Innovations Conference on September 17th at the Grand Hyatt in New York City, and featured leading emerging technology companies in the next generation touch and display sectors.

The conference offered both one-on-one meetings with senior managers and panel discussions on wearable displays, enhanced high-definition imaging and touch capabilities in computing. The keynote address was given by Richard Cope, CEO of NanoLumens, which has been named a Top Ten Innovative Company and honored by the Technology Association of Georgia and named runner up in The Wall Street Journal’s Worldwide Innovation award.

As the world increasingly goes mobile, the demand for next generation touch, display technologies and other human interface technologies has exploded. Understanding what technologies and which companies will be the winners in this latest leap forward is critical to investment managers looking to the future. The companies best able to manage the transition, and bring viable, user-friendly products to market first will undoubtedly be the market leaders of the future.

“The real world is now creating demand for "future world" products leading to another generational shift in the types and uses of technology, especially mobile applications. We consider our Emerging Innovations Conference to be an important opportunity for our investing clients to look closely at those companies competing in this most high growth marketplace as they make important investment decisions,” said John Hellier, Senior Managing Director, Equities.

“We look forward to hosting similar events in the next year and giving investors additional opportunities to evaluate the important innovations in the technology sector,” added Erica Moffett, Associate Director of Equity Research.
