It offers the perfect environment for presenting innovative products and services—and serves as a knowledge forum, networking platform, and investor pitch at the same time.

Who can qualify as an exhibitor? Entrepreneurs with innovative ideas related to the most significant fields of technology presented at automatica and LASER World of PHOTONICS.
Goal of the Start-up Arena: working together to develop ideas to market maturity—in the trend areas of Digitization and AI, Sustainable Production, Future of Work, and Photonics. Our knowledge stage presents an opportunity to find out how this can be done. As the very heart of the Start-up Arena, it offers various highly relevant program highlights. These include start-up pitches as well as expert insights into financing matters and investor needs. This makes the Start-up Arena all the more exciting for financial analysts, equity investment companies, asset managers, banks, investors, entrepreneurs, and individual investors who want to step up their activities in this market—and are looking for the right partner here and at the Odense Investor Summit on Thursday, June 29.
Open. Compact. Inviting. The Start-up Arena will be the central attraction of Hall B4 with its knowledge stage, café bar, and lounge. Here, sustainability is more than an important topic to be covered: The modern shell-scheme stand is particularly resource-conserving as it is made from domestic wood by local producers.
