February 2021: The organiser Fleet Events is now moving online with a new, digital networking format for the photonics industry. New dates have also been announced for the in-person W3+ Fair events in Wetzlar/ Germany and the Rhine Valley (DACHLI)

PHOTONICS+ Virtual Exhibition and Conference, in partnership with EPIC, is a new, efficient networking event for the photonics industry due to take place for the first time on 17 + 18 February 2021. The innovative live, digital event brings stakeholders in the photonics industry together with associated technologies such as optics, electronics and mechanics, as well as relevant user areas. The organiser is Fleet-Events – which also arranges the W3+ Fair high-tech trade fair in Germany and Austria. The company has developed the innovative digital event together with EPIC – European Photonics Industry Consortium, the largest association in the photonics sector.

Over two afternoons, the more than 5,000 online visitors that are expected can become part of the community in an inspiring and efficient way: more than 300 exhibitors will introduce themselves using short product presentations, and 1:1 video chats will enable direct contact that facilitates the initiation of new cooperation opportunities and projects. The matchmaking function, aided by AI, helps participants find the right people and ensures an ideal pre-selection. No less than 20 top keynote speakers will give lectures about current topics relating to photonics. These include speakers from Q Cells, L’Oreal, MBDA, Airbus, Intel, Globalfoundries, Telefonica, Electrolux, ST Microelectronics and ASML. Even making spontaneous connections with promising contacts is easy as there are interactive rooms where participants can intuitively initiate conversations and discuss current developments in specific subject areas – very enjoyably in a relaxed atmosphere.
