Enterprise Europe Network Netherlands invites you to the international brokerage event during the Photonics Event 2013.
The Photonics Brokerage Event 2013 is an international brokerage event focused on the enabling photonics technology and related researchers, business partners, suppliers and intermediaries.

The Photonics Event 2013 with its fair, conference and bilateral meetings make it the ideal venue for tailored networking to develop future projects and new business.  The event establishes a bridge between the research world and business. Scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs, CEO’s, policy makers, consultants and science students are gathering annually to share their knowledge on photonics and to do business and project networking.

The event takes place at 24th – 25th of April 2013 in the NH Conference Centre Koningshof in Veldhovenclose to Eindhoven. The region around Eindhoven is called the Brainport region. Brainport is the most knowledge intensive and industrialized region in the Netherlands and gives home to multinationals like Philips, ASML, FEI, NXP, DAF Trucks, VDL and many other high tech companies, that in most cases are supplying multinationals.
