A national leader in tourism &

photonics

Orlando has developed a uniquely competitive position for optics and photonics companies due to its longstanding history working to take man to the moon. The region’s proximity to the nation’s Space Coast as well as assets like the University of Central Florida’s College of Optics & Photonics (CREOL) and Central Florida Research Park give companies a competitive advantage compared to other cities around the world.

While you’re at Photonics West, stop by the Florida Photonics Cluster booth #2033 to learn more about opportunities for innovative optics and photonics businesses in Orlando.
