Munich, Germany -- Messe München International has moved up the dates of Laser World of Photonics, the world's largest industry gathering for laser technologies by one month to May 13-16, 2013 at the Messe München trade-fair center. The accompanying World of Photonics Congress, Europe's largest congress for photonics, will be held in the neighboring International Congress Center München (ICM) from May 12-16, 2013.

Laser World of Photonics was the world's very first trade fair for the optical technologies sector, and it will celebrate its 40-year anniversary in May 2013. When last held in 2011, more than 1,100 companies from 38 countries exhibited at the fair, and a total of 27,490 visitors from 80 countries attended. This show is the preeminent show for laser used in production applications and as such is typically the introduction venue for laser technology used for industrial laser material processes such as laser welding, laser cutting, laser marking, laser surface treatment, and laser drilling.

The 2013 fair will revolve around several central topics: Lasers and Laser Systems for Production Engineering, Biophotonics and Medical Technology, and Illumination and Energy. The World of Photonics Congress also deals with these topics in a series of conferences. As part of the congress, application panels focusing on solution approaches based on optical technologies will be held in the photonics forums in the exhibition halls.
