Our Forums

Yole Développement is proud to collaborate once more with the China International Optoelectronic Expo (CIOE) to organize a new edition of the Photonics Forums. They will take place in September 2021 in Shenzhen, alongside the 23rd CIOE. Due to COVID-19 preventives measures in China, the CIOE will be postponed and with it the Photonics Forums, meaning they will finally take place on 16 & 17 September.
