Laser World of Photonics is the world’s leading trade fair with Congress for photonics components, systems and applications. The mammoth event will be held from June 24–27, 2019 in Munich, Germany and will attract the crème of the photonics industry. The show aims to display the many business opportunities for modern laser production processes in today’s ever-evolving world.

Focus areas


At this year’s exhibition, one of the core focus areas is biophotonics. In the dedicated ‘Biophotonics and Medical Engineering’ exhibition area, numerous manufacturers that cater to this industry including suppliers of lenses, fiber optics, optical filters, fused silica, miniaturised lenses and cameras for endoscopes and microscopes, optical sensors, laser beam sources and LEDs for highly efficient spectroscopy, etc will be seen exhibiting their unique solutions.

The latest trends in biophotonics as well as the new requirements in diagnostics and therapy will also be discussed at Laser World of Photonics 2019. New age concepts such as the implementation of virtual and augmented reality in clinical practice and medical education will also be showcased at the application panels section of the show.

In addition to this, the 2019 edition of ECBO (European Conferences on Biomedical Optics), which runs in parallel as part of the World of Photonics Congress, will act as a platform for industry experts to share their scientific views on trending research topics such as microscopic imaging.


In the backdrop of developing futuristic electric vehicles and self-driving cars, the show also has plans to focus on the concept of ‘electro-mobility’ as a rise in demand of these vehicles will also lead to an increase in laser technology and imaging. Hence, the event will act as the perfect venue for leaders in this space to exhibit their latest solutions towards tomorrow’s mobility. For instance, laser technology and imaging system providers will demonstrate how innovative solutions can prove beneficial for mass production of electric vehicles and also offer insights on the significance of smart sensors in developing driverless vehicles.

Awards galore at Laser World of Photonics 2019

The Laser World of Photonics event will give away two awards at this year’s edition – The Innovation Award and the Start-Up Award. The Innovation Award will be awarded to the best product premiered at the exhibition and will be conferred for the very first time whereas the Start-Up Award which is being presented for the third time will be awarded to young entrepreneurs for presenting innovative solutions at the expo.

With enormous business opportunities in store, Laser World of Photonics is one of the most impressive global trade fairs for the photonics industry which it makes it a ‘must go to’ event.
