From lighting to consumer electronics, moulded optics is a key technology in photonics, and one of the largest markets in the European industry. For this meeting, we will gather end-users from automotive lighting, buildings lighting, imaging, and other industries, together with leading companies working on designing, manufacture and mass production of moulded glass, and polymers.

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.
