The UK in full flow at Photonics West 2018

Crowds waiting to enter Photonics West 2018

A record breaking Photonics West 2018 saw packed aisles and UK exhibitors thriving last week in San Francisco.  Significant interest in sensing for autonomous vehicles combined with lasers for manufacturing and virtual reality solutions to drive increasing numbers to the show with most exhibitors reporting heavy traffic.

The support of the Department of International Trade and the British Consulate General in San Francisco was very much in evidence with the local Consul General Andrew Whittaker taking time to meet companies at the ever popular UK pavilion reception Wednesday afternoon.
