The bi-annual Laser World of Photonics exhibition and its accompanying tech conference, World of Photonics Congress 2019, opened on Monday, June 24, at Messe Munchen in Munich, Germany, and as in years past it filled five large exhibition halls, with the Congress occupying another hall and the conference center.

Companies exhibiting at the show are generally grouped according to their product lines or areas of expertise, making it easier for attendees to find what they’re looking for. Laser technology is by far the main attraction, but there is also plenty of other technologies to explore such as biophotonics and medical engineering; optics and optics manufacturing equipment; sensors; test and measurement equipment; and optical information and communications technology.

The 2019 edition of Laser World of Photonics  runs through Thursday, June 27.
