Laser markets show resistance to COVID-19

Feb. 5, 2021
The Lasers & Photonics Marketplace Seminar will explore the impact of COVID-19 on photonics businesses, with a great lineup of speakers on the agenda.

I hope you will join us at Laser Focus Worlds 33rd Annual Lasers & Photonics Marketplace Seminar. Presented in cooperation with SPIE, the seminar is the industry’s only event that delivers comprehensive analysis of the global market for lasers. For the last 32 years, Laser Focus Worlds Annual Lasers & Photonics Marketplace Seminar has been recognized as the pre-eminent industry event for networking with senior-level executives, technology directors, and business managers from technology companies around the world. Unlike every other year, however, where the event was somewhat exclusive with limited seating available, this year, thanks to going digital, the event will be more accessible and affordable than ever before.
