OCTOBER 12, 2007 -- The Optical Society of America (OSA) will debut its first Corporate Member Pavilion at the Asia Optical Fiber Communication and Optoelectronic Exposition and Conference (AOE) in Shanghai, China next week. Six society corporate members will exhibit in an 800-sq-ft pavilion at the conference. Participants include Chroma Technology, Del Mar Photonics, Finisar Corp., Gemfire Corp., Luna Innovations, and RSoft Design Group.
"Holding an OSA Corporate Member Pavilion at AOE was a natural fit," said Elizabeth Rogan, OSA executive director. "China is a critical market in the optics and photonics industry. AOE is a prominent trade show and is now supporting a high-quality technical program. While OFC/NFOEC [Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference] draws a strong showing of Chinese companies to the U.S., it's equally strategic to make the personal connection with China-based customers in their home region. This is one of many benefits OSA provides for its corporate members."
The OSA Corporate Member Pavilion at AOE offers an opportunity for companies to increase their exposure within the Chinese market. The OSA adds that it will handle many of the logistics of booth preparation for companies participating in the pavilion, freeing up time for companies to focus on their sales strategies in preparing for the show. OSA is providing pavilion participants with a technically trained translator, travel and shipping assistance, as well as an exhibit package including carpet, furniture, lighting. and electricity. There also will be a welcome center, stocked with refreshments and staffed by OSA representatives, that provides a meeting space for pavilion participants.
