Premiere for the W3+ Fair 2023 in Jena

By Matt Williams -

The photonics location Jena will be the venue of the W3+ Fair for the first time in 2023. Companies in the key technologies of photonics, optics, electronics and mechanics will now also have an interdisciplinary presentation and networking platform in Thuringia. The co-initiator of the fair with the accompanying conference en-tech.talks is the photonics network OptoNet Jena e.V.

The W3+ Fair, a networking trade fair and conference for enabling technologies, which opens its doors in Wetzlar/ Germany at the end of March, is also launching for the first time at the traditional location of Jena. The new W3+ Fair Jena (w3-fair.com/Jena/) will take place on November 29 + 30, 2023. Gold partners will be the photonics network OptoNet Jena e.V. from the association of OptecNet Germany and EPIC. The cross-industry platform also wants to pave the way for new, technology-driven innovations in the Jena/Thuringia region.

The popularity of the trade show at the new location is already very high: a good eight months before the event, there are only a few remaining booths. The organizer is currently examining the option of expanding the hall space. Large and small companies such as Jenoptik, OptoTech, Fisba, DOPA, WZW Optic AG, TNO, LASOS, Layertec, JAT Jenaer Antriebstechnik, POG, Fraunhofer IOF, Spaceoptix, Acktar, SIOS, BATOP, Materion Balzers Optics, PI Physik Instrumente, Mersen and IMT will present their products and services on site.

In addition to long-time professional partners such as Photonics Germany, IVAM and SpectroNet, new participants – besides OptoNet e.V. – include the tridelta campus Hermsdorf and the ThZM Thuringian Center for Mechanical Engineering and others.

As in Wetzlar, there will be a free accompanying conference in Jena, the en-tech.talks. The “Call for Papers” is now open here.

“We are very pleased to be able to bring the W3+ Fair to Jena,” explains Nora Kirsten, Managing Director of OptoNet e.V. “We see great potential for resident companies and the region: the interdisciplinary networking will strengthen both,”

“We have had our eye on the location for a long time, but the great demand for the “W3+ Fair Jena” format now makes us very happy,” adds Jörg Brück, Project Director at organizer Fleet Events. “The support and commitment from industry and networks is tremendous. Together we will create an innovative marketplace for enabling technologies in Jena.”
