LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA has become the leading photonics exhibition in China since it was founded in 2006. It revolves around innovative products and their industrial solutions and applications, reflecting actual developments in the industry worldwide. Next year, the sixth LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA is expected to be another successful event when it takes place on March 15-17, 2011 in Shanghai, People’s Republic of China.
During the last five years, LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA, the Chinese version of LASER World of PHOTONICS in Germany, has expanded its exhibition space and audience participation has doubled. The 2010 three-day show attracted over 275 exhibitors from 17 countries and districts as well as over 25,000 attendees from 57 countries and districts. These record numbers show an event on track to also become the leading laser and photonics show in all of Asia.
According to the specific needs of the Chinese market, LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA’s strategic focus has been on laser material processing since its beginnings. Besides focusing on its traditionally strong sectors such as laser and laser systems for production engineering, lasers and optronics, the 2011 exhibition will emphasize special sectors such as optical information and communications technology, optical processing and optics manufacturing. There will be six special areas presenting the whole industry – lasers and laser systems for production engineering, optical communications, optics and manufacturing of optics, lasers and optronics, sensors, test and measurement and accessory and service. This year, the exhibition space is expected to expand by 50 percent. Trumpf, Rofin, Coherent, Han’s Laser, Intelume, Beamtech, JDSU, Leoni, Physik Instrumente, IPG, Panasonic, Chutian and Huagong, amongst others, have already decided to participate in LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2011.
LIA Supported Conference
The high-quality conference program is also a highlight for LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA. Two professional conferences will be presented during LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2011: the 6th International Conference on Laser Processes and Components (LPC 2011), which is coorganized with the Laser Institute of America and the Chinese Optical Society-Laser Processing Committee, and Optics Frontier – the 6th Laser Technology Forum and Outstanding Achievements – Release Conference of Chinese Optics 2010, featuring a series of lectures on the most important growth sectors in the Chinese market for optical technologies.
LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA is organized by Messe Munchen International. Messe Munchen International has held LASER World of PHOTONICS in Munich every other year since 1973 and introduced the fair to Shanghai in 2006. For more information, visit www.world-of-photonics.net.
