“This wonderful exhibition has opened the days of photonics in Moscow. I am very glad that the trade show has enlarged thus testifying to the development of photonics in Russia. Photonics is a strategically important sector and the show participants prove this fact by displaying new products at their stands. The trade show is a networking platform enabling exhibitors to generate new business leads, receive new orders and collaboration offers and achieve business success. Professional visitors can source new ideas which encourage application of the displayed products in their production.”
Ivan Kovsh, President of Laser Association
“In spite of recent perturbations in the economy, the Photonics exhibition is on a steady rise by the number of exhibitors, visitors and the space occupied. The trade show and its associated events prove the fact that photonics develops in our country, first of all, thanks to the industry players, the Laser Association, and the Photonics Technology Platform. The industry has a great potential and this trade show makes a significant contribution to the development of the potential.”
Dmitry Kapranov, Deputy Director of the Department of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade
“At this exhibition we showcase our new developments such as preliminary monitoring system which provides registration of vibration signals as well as the single frequency fiber laser that is a combination of a laser module and a driver regulating current/temperature.
We have participated in Photonics for eight years. We receive high ROI and practical effect. The influx of visitors has increased this year. The trade show has become more active and effective. Here we appreciate direct business networking.”
Alexander Ignatyev, Head of Optoelectronic Devices, FORC-Photonics (Skolkovo resident)
“The key aim of participation in Photonics for us is to showcase the latest developments of our company. This year the trade show is larger, busier and more interesting. We’ve seen a large flow of visitors and an efficient transfer of interest in our products from quantity to quality. We’ll certainly participate next year and demonstrate even more developments.”
Taras Lisovsky, General Director of Essent Optics (Belarus)
“Our company is engaged in supplying different equipment based on fiber technology. At the trade show we present one of the areas of our company that is research integration. We’ve participated in the Photonics. World of Lasers and Optics exhibition two years in a row. Just like in the previous year we are satisfied with the quality of visitors, partners, and potential customers. The trade show is probably not very large but very convenient and effective.”
Evgeny Uryupin, CEO at Fibertool
“We’ve participated in Photonics. World of Lasers and Optics annually and for a long time. Here we put on display our developments, optical and mechanical equipment, optical tables and lasers. The main purpose of participation is to show new products which have been made over the past year as well as batch produced products for the people to have an opportunity to touch, try and estimate whether they are suited for their experimental facilities and for solution of their challenges. This edition runs quiet successfully and we meet our goals. The trade show increases year on year; there is a positive upward trend. Earlier there were a lot of foreign participants but now we observe an increasing number of Russian representatives. It’s an advantage for us since the Russian market is our target.”
Ivan Umrikhin, Head of Technical Support Department, Vicon Standa (St. Petersburg)
“At the trade show we put on display the equipment produced by Laser Center. We make machines for marking, engraving, cutting, and welding and other technologies for material processing. The Photonics exhibition is a platform where we can demonstrate our technological capabilities to a wide range of professionals, exchange views and get feedback on the current market demands. I believe the Photonics exhibition is the best platform to solve the above mentioned challenges.
It’s difficult to evaluate the results from participation so far, but the first two days were very effective: there were a lot of visitors, old and new customers. I hope our participation will be useful and we’ll get business and technical information.
I think that Photonics has turned into a show for our customers and a platform for collaboration with the market and industry professionals. The real work is going on here. And Expocentre shall be paid great tribute. The trade show is not large but in terms of visitor attendance and collaboration it’s a real working platform.”
Sergey Gorny, Director of Laser Center (St. Petersburg)
