Your visit, your benefit—good reasons to attend

LASER World of PHOTONICS is the leading trade fair for LASER & Photonics. It will take place in Munich from June 24–27, 2025 and attracts over trade visitors and exhibitors from all over the world. Here you can learn about the latest trends and innovations in photonics technology, attend workshops and technical presentations, and interact with industry professionals.

Our success factors:

Application, research and technology

The world's leading trade fair for photonics components, systems and applications has been setting standards in terms of size, variety and relevance since 1973. It presents the world market in a more comprehensive, concentrated and transparent way than any other event. And it does so with a first-class portfolio: All the important players from application, research and technology meet here.

Solutions from eleven exhibition areas

At the Munich Exhibition Centre you will find leading suppliers of laser systems for manufacturing, data transmission, biophotonics as well as from the fields of optoelectronics, lighting and energy technology. Other focal points are sensor technology, measuring and testing technology as well as imaging solutions and integrated photonics. The eleven exhibition areas cover the entire spectrum of photonic technologies.

In dialogue with industry players

The transfer of knowledge and the exchange between disciplines are among the central drivers of innovation today. That is why the LASER World of PHOTOINICS trade fair and the World of Photonics Congress bring together the most important decision-makers and the brightest minds from industry, research and politics across all sectors. For discussions and contacts at the highest level.

Key topics—top speakers

The top-class supporting program at LASER World of PHOTONICS will highlight all aspects of the latest applications for lasers and photonics in forums, panels and exclusive round tables—sorted according to application areas and technologies. This year, the World of QUANTUM will again feature a top-class lecture program. Here you can find out what the world's leading experts have to say about industry-relevant topics and which new developments are relevant for you.

Scientific congress—the solutions of tomorrow

As one of the most important congresses worldwide, the World of Photonics Congress offers a unique networking and knowledge platform with seven specialist conferences, over 3,000 lectures and around 6,700 experts from scientific and industrial research. In its user program you will find valuable know-how for your daily business and all the information about what will move the industry of tomorrow.

Quantum technology—the next technical revolution

With the World of QUANTUM, quantum technology has also had its own platform since 2022. It brings together global pioneers of technology development and application with leading suppliers of optical and photonic components and systems to jointly build the future of quantum technologies.

Here you can experience the exciting future technology at first hand today: The rapid development in quantum computing, which promises exponential increases in computing power. Quantum communication, which will lead encryption into a new age. Or quantum sensor technology and quantum imaging, which make the previously invisible visible and take measurement technology into spheres of unprecedented precision.

One ticket—two leading world trade fairs

LASER World of PHOTONICS and World of QUANTUM will be held at the same time and under the same roof as automatica, the leading trade fair for automation and robotics—a win-win situation for all participants. Because the exhibition spectrums complement each other perfectly. And because automation and robotics are becoming increasingly important for laser and photonics companies to remain competitive on the market.

Young talents, sustainability & digitalization

LASER World of PHOTONICS is aware of its importance for current social issues such as the energy transition, skills shortages and supply chain problems. The trade fair and the parallel events therefore place the topics of promoting young talent, sustainability and digitalization in thematic focus. After all, it's all about shaping our economic future for sustainable success.
