Laser World of Photonics Expands into India
MUNICH, Dec. 5, 2011 — Laser World of Photonics India will be held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre (BEC) in Mumbai on Sept. 14-16, 2012. The event, a collaboration of Messe München and its subsidiary Messe München International (MMI) India, will be the first Laser World of Photonics trade fair to take place in that country. MMI India will take over the former LaserTech India, integrating it into Laser World of Photonics India.
The fair will give laser and photonics technology its own national platform, improve its level of recognition in India and enhance networking between research and industry. It will promote growth in various Indian industries and give impetus to photonics-related research organizations and university programs.
Because the Indian market is in an earlier phase with regard to development and sales, the fair’s primary focus is on lasers and laser systems for manufacturing. The other product sectors will give visitors an overview of the latest laser and photonics technologies, which will be broken down into the following categories: lasers and optronics, optics, sensors, measuring and testing technology, optical measuring systems and optical information technology.
“The orientation of the new event in Mumbai corresponds to the interests of our globally active industry. We decided to hold an event in India to support the industry and to tap new markets in India, a country which is growing at a rapid pace. The range of exhibits at the fair supports all photonics sectors. At the same time, the fair’s global expansion strengthens Munich’s position as a hub for the photonics industry,” said Norbert Bargmann, deputy chief executive officer of Messe München GmbH.
The event is supported by the Indian Laser Association, which is helping organize the program of conference events.
