The purpose of this unique meeting is to bring experts and leaders from industrial companies around the world to discuss photonics technology developments and challenges. The event is by invitation only at CTO/CEO level, 1 representative per company, with an audience of around 250 participants from 30 countries. The presentations will be short (15 minutes) followed by 5 minutes discussion moderated  by Dr. Jose Pozo, EPIC’s Director of Technology, renowned for his exceptional ability to engage the audience to explore synergy and business opportunities. The event is very much networking oriented with 11 networking opportunities (lunch, dinner, coffee breaks) and a detailed participant list will be provided in advance (including a company description, personal biography and picture of every attendee). If you have not been personally invited but would like to participate, contact me before registering, email at

SPEAKER GUIDELINES: The audience are all experts, but in different fields. The talk should start with the basics but very quickly reach top level. The presentation should be 12-15 minutes long and will be followed by 5 minutes discussion. We recommend you have a short introduction of your company (1 min) of your products (2 minutes) of how the technology works & applications (5 minutes) and the future applications and challenges (5 minutes). Take advantage that you will be addressing a truly unique audience of top level people from the industry, covering the entire manufacturing value chain. The ideal outcome is that people know what you do, know what you could do, may solve some of your current challenges, and maybe brainstorm ideas of what you could do together. The purpose is to establish new technology development collaborations, in your conclusion slide, you could add what kind of partners, collaborators you would like to have to solve your current technology bottlenecks. The meeting is held in a very collaborative spirit to further technology, develop new products, imagine new applications. If you have never attended and EPIC event, watch some of the pictures to get an impression. EPIC past meeting pictures.

Hermann Moos

Head of Technology Scouting & Product Manager at finetech

The EPIC Global Photonics Technology Summit 2018 was very professionally organized and moderated. Most of the participants consider the event a total success and much more effective than any exhibition. I had about 60 conversations with different participants and I am sure some business will turn out for us in the midterm future. Also, some of the participants I talked to seem to be very interested in our solutions and want me to visit them and vice versa. Thus, consider it a win-win. I would like to congratulate the whole EPIC team. Keep up the good work. For sure I will attend one of the next meetings again

Arnaud Zoubir

Business Development Manager at ALPhANOV

The EPIC Global Photonics Technology Summit 2018 was extremely productive. In particular, I got to know a couple of companies and we’re already discussing collaborations. I also made several other good contacts. EPIC’s team and organization was, as always, top-notch. Don’t change a thing

Fetah Benabid

CTO at GLOphotonics

The EPIC Global Photonics Technology Summit 2018 was very well organized. I particularly enjoyed the quality of the network and the contagious enthusiasm of Jose. I am convinced that your work will definitely have a beneficial impact on the EPIC members in particular, and on the photonic market players as a whole
