Connect with this important audience

Photonics is one of the fastest-growing technologies in the world today of enormous importance to scientific research and industry alike. Most recently being developed is Quantum Technology which could become a potential billion pound industry for the UK.

If your business supplies components, instruments, systems or is involved in the generation of photonics, optical coatings or semiconductor detector developments or perhaps offers a contract service to the photonics, laser, optical or vacuum industry you need to be at Photonex + Vacuum Technologies 2021.

Three ways to participate | Meet 1,000 attendees


Following 30 years of success, Photonex now continues as an SPIE Europe event. Photonex is the #1 event in the UK photonics calendar and is now set for further growth. The co-location of the Vacuum Expo means no other event of its kind reaches across so many disciplines and industries.

Vacuum Expo

Vacuum Expo is well established as the one event that connects Europe’s supply chain with users of vacuum technologies, in-vacuum technology and thin films. If your business supplies vacuum equipment, systems, instruments, or components, then you need a presence at Vacuum Expo to engage with new markets and customers.

Quantum Technologies Zone

Bringing the whole industry under one roof—researchers, industrial users, science groups, supplier companies and innovative newcomers—the Quantum Technologies Zone is designed to further awareness of the outstanding work being undertaken in the UK. From quantum-enabled prototypes to nearly market ready and new products, participants will have the opportunity to explore collaborations.
