PHOTONEX, the key UK exhibition in 2017 for light technologies, has a new logo.

The new branding emphasises the opportunity visitors have to see demo’s, meet with technology experts, attend presentations and talks in an extensive supporting, and free, conference of over 120 speakers. The Enlighten Conference covers applications, technology advances, innovations and emerging technologies in light-based technologies in 15 different programmes.

This year’ show will be held on Wednesday 11th & Thursday 12th October at the popular Ricoh Arena, a well-known venue in Coventry, home of “The Wasps”, a multi-function building with impressive exhibition halls and meeting rooms. Last year a new rail station opened making the venue even more accessible: Station name – Coventry Arena.

What’s it all about?

A multitude of light-based technologies; this event provides engineers the opportunity to meet the UK’s top supplier companies in a comprehensive exhibition covering very wide subject matter.

2017 focus applications include additive manufacturing, industrial vision, metrology for industry, instrumentation, lasers, sensors and in a co-located exhibition for vacuum technology.
