The CLEO Hub

The CLEO Hub

The CLEO Hub is the destination for product information, industry and market-based programs and networking.

The exhibition is not just a location to meet exhibiting companies. It is an energetic and thriving location that offers Poster Sessions and a theater hosting two Plenary Sessions and industry- and market-focused programs. Coffee breaks provide a platform for lively scientific discussion and collegial networking opportunities.

Exhibition

Featuring more than 80 participating companies, The CLEO Hub offers a vibrant and comprehensive show floor with the essential product information you need to advance and facilitate your research.

The CLEO Hub Theater 

A dedicated theater space in the exhibition hosts Plenary Sessions I and II, the Market Focus program and product demonstrations.

Networking

The CLEO Hub offers numerous opportunities for attendees to enhance professional connections and recharge during a busy conference schedule.  

Market Focus

Market Focus investigates the latest trends in the photonics marketplace and provides a forum to discuss new products and emerging technologies and markets.

These presentations address the latest in photonics products and services, especially those that potentially hold future business opportunities. A key feature of the program is a survey of market trends and market sector outlook in select areas.
