July 02, 2020

Organized by Messe Muenchen Shanghai, the LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2020 will be held at Hall 7.1 – 8.1H, National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) from July 3 to 5, 2020. As an important annual event of the laser, optics and photonics industry in the Asia-Pacific region, LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA will focus on hot topics in the industry under the theme of “innovation integration and intelligent future”, and showcase cutting-edge equipment, technology, and applications. It creates a one-stop, comprehensive platform, and aims to stimulate technological innovation and upgrading of the entire laser industry chain.

The LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA originated from Germany, the cradle of Industry 4.0. Since its entry into China, LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA has made continuous innovations and break-throughs. It has not only been 15 years of continuous experience accumulation and service improvement, but also 15 years of rapid development of China's optoelectronic industry. From 163 exhibitors and 5,000 visitors with an exhibition space of 6,000 square meters in 2006, to nearly 900 high-quality exhibitors and over 53,000 square meters of exhibition space today, the growth of LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA is unimaginable. In this special year of 2020, LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA has stayed true to its original idea, and continued to build an efficient communication platform for enterprises and users. Backed by the faith of the industry, the exhibition consolidates confidence in the market, and serves as the barometer for the Chinese optoelectronic industry.

LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2020 again features leading names in the optoelectronics industry: TRUMPF, Han’s, HG Laser, Penta Chutian, Staubil, Precitec, Hymson, Coherent, Newport, IPG, Raycus, LASERLINE, ERNI, Raylayse, Amplitude, Ekspla, Lumentum, Torchlight, JPT, Olympus, Konica-Minolta, Edmund, Hamamatsu, Yongxin, CASTECH, SANF, CELERA MOTION, Renishaw, PI, Baumer, ON Semiconductor, Baidu Cloud, Keyence, Allied Vision, Basler, Datu, Vieworks, LUSTER, Daheng and Huarui.

With more exhibition space, clearer layout, and more elaborate exhibit categories, LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2020 covers the entire industrial chain of photonics technology, both upstream and downstream. Hall 7.1H is home to Optical Metrology and Quality Control (including IR Technology and Applications Special Exhibit), Optics and Optical Manufacturing and Vision China (Shanghai) 2020. Hall 8.1H covers Lasers and Laser Systems for Production Engineering, as well as Lasers and Optoelectronics. In addition to automotive/rail transportation, mold, automation, scientific research, and 3C electronics, in this post-Covid-19 era, medical devices, bio-medical, environmental monitoring and other related fields have also received much attentions. Especially worth mentioning is the special IR Technology and Applications Special Exhibit in Hall 7.1 that covers AI products and applications: from rapid, contact-free infrared thermal imaging temperature measurement, big-data-based smart epidemic-transmission tracking to contact-free delivery robots.

LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA 2020 aims to present not only the leading international giants together with their innovative products and solutions, but also the technical strengths of important, innovative “China Powers” through face to face communication. This is both a responsibility and an obligation for the exhibition. While inspiring innovation and accelerating the development and upgrading of the entire industry chain, LASER World of PHOTONICA CHINA will try to help rebuild confidence and speed up the resumption of ordinary production. The developing Chinese market has also brought bright prospects for advanced optoelectronic technology. The German Pavilion and the Japanese Pavilion in Hall 8.1 will represent the overseas wisdom in optoelectronics and demonstrate the full spectrum of the optoelectronics and related industries.

The PHOTONICS CONGRESS CHINA 2020 conferences and communication activities will be held online and offline. They include: the 15th International Laser Processing and Systems Conference (LPC 2020), the 7th China Laser Market Summit, and the 7th Workshop on Safety of Industrial Lasers and System Use, etc. The programs will be a gathering of global industry experts and a collision of ideas that will influence the trend of the industry. LPC 2020 and the 7th Workshop on Safety of Industrial Lasers and System Use will be held online for free for the first time, a reflection of how we try every effort to offer high-level laser technology and application events for the Asia-Pacific region, and create an international platform that integrates “production, education and research”.
