Esco Optics at Photonics West

Esco Optics exhibited once again at 2017 SPIE Photonics West - the premier show for optical components supporting the areas of biomedical optics and biophotonics, industrial lasers and laser sources, optoelectronics devices and materials, nano-photonics and MEOMS-MEMs.

Here’s a recap of this year’s record breaking convention:

By the numbers, this was the largest turnout for SPIE, at just over 23,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students and others attended.

Of that, 6,500 were conference attendees, 9,000 exhibition-only visitors, 7,600 exhibitor representatives and more than 1,380 exhibiting companies from around the globe. In addition to the attendance numbers, over 200 new product launches were featured in this year’s exhibition. 

Esco Optics Beer Pong

Keeping the tradition alive, Esco Optics and Universal Photonics co-hosted the 3rd Annual Beer Pong Tournament with nearly 100 participants from all sectors of the industry. This popular networking event is a always a huge hit and there was plenty of food and fun to go around!

Congratulations to this year’s champions Jason Wickersham from Esco Optics and Christopher Russel from Universal Photonics.

We hope to see you there next year!

One exhibitor, Schott, a glass manufacturer, used give-away shot glasses to raise money for a San Fransisco-based nonprofit organization Project Night Night that works to help homeless children throughout the bay area. The final tally came to a sum of $2500 raised for Project Night Night. 

Esco Optics also debuted our brand new, comprehensive catalog of optical components. Download the PDF or request a hard copy.
