Exhibitors at BiOS:
"We exhibit at Photonics West and at BiOS where we focus on our biomedical products. One of the most profitable parts of BiOS is the business we do with the other exhibitors."
- Ali Mahloudji, Sutter
“The booth has been packed all day and the show has been great. Unbelievable."
- Bill Shiner, Vice President Industrial Sales, IPG Photonics Corporation
“This is our first year at BiOS and we’ve been very busy! We’ve come to Photonics West for years and decided to exhibit at BiOS to promote our new eye safe laser glass. We’ve had so much traffic that our table top exhibit is too small. Next year we will upgrade to at least a 10’x10’. If BiOS is any indication, Photonics West should be great!”
- Marlene Deily, Promotions Manager, SCHOTT North America
We’ve exhibited at Photonics West for seven years and always walked BiOS but had not exhibited until this year. It makes sense for us to do BiOS because we have biomedical products and we’re already here. In the first half hour of the first day we made a contact that is so good that it makes the whole show worth our time. I’m so glad I decided to exhibit! We’ll definitely be back next year."
- Lee Branst, North American Regional Sales Manager, Lumics USA
“This is our first time at BiOS after being at Photonics West for many years. We’ve had good traffic at BiOS that is half current customers with whom we want to continue to strengthen our relationships and half new customers."
- Robert Murphy, Bid-Service LLC
“BiOS show was fantastic. Lead count up 20% over last year.”
