Photonics West is expected to draw more than 20,000 researchers, technology developers, and buyers.

Admission to the industry program is available at no charge, and registration is required. Information is at www.spie.org/PW18industry.

Industry sessions will run alongside two trade shows, technical conferences with more than 5,200 presentations, training courses, and other events. Technical conference details and registration information are at www.spie.org/pw.

The 200-company BiOS Expo and sold-out Photonics West Exhibition with approximately 1,300 exhibiting companies will feature new laser systems, optical systems for therapeutic and diagnostic medical applications, game-changing communications capabilities, AR/VR equipment for industrial and other applications, and more.

Activities at Photonics West and other SPIE events underscore the society's long-standing close connection with industry, said SPIE Industry Development Director Stephen Anderson. "We aim to help our industry partners do what they do best: apply research and innovation to solving real-world problems with photonics."
