2019 Photonics West Expo features ULC among 1300+ exhibitors

The 2019 Photonics West Conference & Exhibition is returning to San Francisco’s Moscone Center on Feb. 2. Hosted by renowned International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), this year’s five-day event is comprised of the BIOS Expo, the Photonics West Exhibition, and other exclusive sessions. United Lens Company (ULC) returns as a seasoned exhibitor of Photonics West. To learn more about our capabilities and products, visit one of our representatives at Booth 1467, South Hall on the Moscone Exhibit Level.

Photonics West is widely considered the premier event of the photonics, optics, and laser industries. With each event, SPIE works in tandem with top-level professionals to provide attendees with product insight and unique networking experiences.


SPIE invites 2019 attendees to “see the future,” as this event offers more in-depth demonstrations of cutting-edge photonics technologies. On Feb. 2, Photonics West begins with the BIOS Expo—the largest biophotonics and biomedical exhibition in the world—where attendees will view product demonstrations from 200 leading healthcare and medical solution companies.
