An information edge


Visitors who attend LASER World of PHOTONICS experience an information program that covers the entire world of photonics.

Perfectly equipped to face the competition. The Photonics Forums featured an extensive lecture program and practice-oriented application panels that offered visitors genuine added value.

Application panels

At the forums directly in the respective exhibition halls

Leading experts from the photonics and laser industry as well as users will present the latest applications in industrial production, in the medical sector and in the optical quality-inspection and imaging sectors.

Attendees will receive a wealth of information in a series of lectures (in English) lasting two hours.

14th International Laser Marketplace

A special ticket is required to attend.

From knowledge to the transfer of knowledge. Decision-makers from sales, development and marketing will discuss markets and trends in laser material processing. This year the symposium presents itself with an extended program: In addition to lectures by world-leading experts, interviews and a panel discussion will also take place for the first time.

Photonics 4.0 Expert Panel: Light-technology solutions for Industry 4.0

PHOTONIC 4.0: Artificial Intelligence in Production

Digitally networked photonics, or Photonics 4.0, is making some exceptional new production concepts possible.

Innovative solutions in optical sensor technology, man-machine interaction and generative laser techniques will be key elements of production in the future.

In the forum, four Photonic-4.0-experts will hold their presentations and afterwards discuss with a moderator in a podium discussion.

Organizer: SPECTARIS. Deutscher Industrieverband für optische, medizinische und mechatronische Technologien e.V.

Innovation and Start-Up Award

The Start-Up Award will be presented for the third time as part of the Start-Up program. Founder teams from Germany and abroad will present the latest products and prototypes to a jury of experts.
New from 2019: The Innovation Award for the best product premiere. In 2019, the most innovative product will be selected from all these new products and awarded with the new Innovation Award.

Jobs & Careers

Experts make presentations and participate in panel discussions about career opportunities in the photonics industry.
