This meeting promises to be a real “meeting of the minds” leading to unique business development opportunities. We plan to select the key players along the entire quantum photonics supply chain. We will connect them with leading component suppliers (including Lasers at specific frequencies, Single-Photon Sources and Detectors, Integrated Photonics for manipulation of atoms/photons, Diamond components) with instrument and system integrators (Low light cameras, Time-gated spectroscopy systems, Single Photon and long-range LIDARs, All-Optical Data Storage, Gravity sensors), to push forward the industrialization of Quantum Photonics technologies.


Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships. 

Watch us LIVE on YouTube

These online technology meetings take place in Zoom with a limited group of people. If you would like to attend the meeting, please register below. There are limited seats and we allow only one person per company, but all our online technology meetings can be viewed LIVE on YouTube or be viewed afterwards if you have missed it.
