Info for Advertisers

SPIE delivers a quarterly magazine called SPIE Professional. Advertising in SPIE Professional provides a unique opportunity to reach a highly qualified audience (both industry and academia) of some 18,000 SPIE Members, with bonus distribution at SPIE's largest meetings.

SPIE Professional articles cover the optics and photonics industry, technology and research highlights, and topics to help optics and photonics professionals succeed in their careers. Advertising in SPIE Professional will expose your message to key decision makers in the optics and photonics industry.

Even better, a recent survey shows that Members are active readers of the magazine, with 46% reporting they visited a company's website after they saw an ad in SPIE Professional. Readers are looking for new solutions to their research problems; more than half (56%) work in R&D and/or engineering.

SPIE Members value the content of SPIE Professional as well, with 51% keeping the magazine for reference or passing their issues along to students and colleagues.

As an added bonus, SPIE Professional will post a logo and a link to advertisers' websites in the online edition of the magazine.
