I hope you will join us at Laser Focus World's 32nd Annual Lasers & Photonics Marketplace Seminar to explore the current state of the market, the challenges of trade and tariffs in China, and emerging technologies. The full-day conference and networking event will be held on February 3, 2020, the Monday before SPIE Photonics West. If you take look at our agenda and speaker lineup, I think you'll agree this event is not to be missed. As the only executive-level event held in partnership with SPIE and part of the official Photonics West program, the Seminar will augment SPIE’s growing industry program at Photonics West and reach an even larger audience of executives, business development managers, and investors.

As part of its new role, SPIE Director of Industry Development Steve Anderson will moderate a panel of senior executives discussing global photonics markets, as well as the political and economic climate affecting their businesses. In addition, SPIE Government Affairs Director Jennifer Douris O’Bryan will present a very relevant lunchtime talk on global public policy and investments. Our keynote speaker, president and CEO of Hamamatsu Photonics Akira Hiruma, will discuss the development of new photonics technologies and applications, and the importance of entrepreneurial thinking. We’ll also have an executive interview with John Lee, the incoming CEO of MKS Instruments, who will explain how the company has integrated its acquisitions and is addressing numerous markets.

Laser market analyst Allen Nogee of Laser Markets Research will present his laser market data and analyses based on extensive research, and Bo Gu from Bos Photonics will present his laser market data from China. Jessica DeGroote Nelson, Director of Technology and Strategy at Optimax Systems, will speak on how emerging laser applications are placing new demands on optics. And finally, John Dexheimer from LightWave Advisors will moderate a panel on how acceleration in VCSEL adoption impacts the photonics ecosystem. Please join us to explore the impact of changing photonics markets on your business. You can register online at
