We would like to thank all speakers and participants.

Laser applications in dialog

The world's leading trade fair LASER World of PHOTONICS is traditionally accompanied by the International Laser Marketplace. The industry forum for laser material processing is organized by OPTECH CONSULTING and LASER World of PHOTONICS. It is aimed at decision-makers in corporate management, marketing and sales in the entire laser industry as well as at investors. It was held for the fifteenth time in 2022.

The symposium focused on the latest technology trends for lasers in materials processing as well as the development prospects in the most important international sales markets such as China, Japan and India. A special role was played this year by the importance of photonics and lasers in the context of quantum technologies.
