Optifab 2015 Exhibitors - Contract now available 2015 Call for Papers will open in December 2014

Optifab | Rochester, NY, USA

SPIE Optifab is the largest optical fabrication event in North America and it only happens every other year in Rochester, New York . At Optifab you'll find research AND industry, a unique format that lets you gain valuable insight into the optical fabrication market by maximizing interaction between leading international researchers and manufacturers. Join us in Rochester in 2015.

Why come to Rochester = Advanced Manufacturing
In another boost for the National Photonics Initiative, the University of Rochester Center for Emerging and Innovative Sciences (CEIS) has received a grant to lead development of a national roadmap for photonics in manufacturing. Learn more at  NIST Program for Advanced Manufacturing

Interested in Exhibiting

In 2013, SPIE Optifab drew nearly 1,700 to Rochester to see an expansive exhibition of 161 companies and to hear more than 102 technical presentations on the latest research in the field. Exhibitors were enthusiastic about traffic and lead quality during the three-day show.

Here is one of many satisfied exhibitors:
"We are seeing the end users of our products at Optifab, not just the buyers. Users make recommendations as to the products that their companies buy. Many of our customers are also exhibitors at Optifab and it is good to meet with them here. Cross pollination always works. Exhibiting at Optifab gives us the opportunity to strengthen interrelationships and facilitates the generation of new ideas." - Ashish Kapoor, Treibacher Industries, first time exhibitor
