The Photonics Leadership Group was pleased to welcome the return of in-person meetings last month with Photonex 2021 in Glasgow.
Hosting the first in-person photonics exhibition and conference in the UK for almost 2 years, Photonex combined multiple full publication conferences including the first full UK conference on quantum technology, vibrant industry sessions and panels including debates on accelerating photonics innovation to market and a full exhibition.
Photonex also hosted the PLG’s AGM and a full visit of Members of Parliament from the All Party Parliamentary Group on Photonics and Quantum. In a full day program, the PLG and SPIE were pleased to give parliamentarians an opportunity to get to know the photonics and quantum industry its global impact, its challenges and the passion of its many players.
On behalf of the UK photonics community, the PLG passes is thanks on to organisers, SPIE, and hosts, the Scottish Event Campus, the numerous conference and symposium chairs and organising committees, exhibitors and attendees. We look forward to Photonex 2022 at the NEC in Birmingham.
