Welcome to the German Pavilion at Photonics West 2018!

A globally efficient innovation process requires the support of scientists, politicians and associations. Photonics West provides a link between all those and has a strong focus on research, based on the SPIE Conferences and courses parallel to the exhibition. 

Moreover, you will be given the opportunity to see some of the most promising innovations, with new products being launched, and to meet up with top companies and industry leaders in San Francisco. As North America's largest photonics and lasers conference, Photonics West brings together more than 1,300 exhibiting companies and 23,000 international attendees from both the United States and the international community. This renowned event therefore offers a great opportunity to build up international contacts and to create new business.  

Since 2005, Germany is represented at the Photonics West with a national Pavilion hosting 70 German exhibitors in 2018 displaying high-tech products made in Germany.  

On behalf of all German exhibitors, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA) and the German Hightech Industry Association SPECTARIS are looking forward to seeing you at the German Pavilion at the Moscone Center in the North Hall. We wish you a very successful trade fair, new incentives and valuable contacts!
