It's not only the world-famous Leica camera that was invented here – the W3+ Fair is also "Made in Wetzlar". The industrial network Wetzlar Network launched the trade fair in 2014 in conjunction with FLEET Events – and found the ideal location in its home city in the state of Hesse. Around the leading centre of the optics industry there are more world market leaders than almost anywhere else. At the W3+ Fair, you can easily talk to the global players face-to-face! Learn new things, expand your network and enjoy two trade fair days, on 16 and 17 March 2022, devoted to future technologies in the fields of optics, photonics, electronics and mechanics.
The Wetzlar region relies on the strong impetus of this successful fair: in addition to the Wetzlar Network, the international photonics consortium EPIC also supports the W3+ Fair, along with regional companies and partners from the worlds of science and politics. A strong network that you can benefit from! Thanks to its cross-industry concept, the W3+ Fair is the only trade fair that brings together the latest knowledge from four key technologies in one place. Let yourself be inspired by the leading minds in the high-tech industry, capitalise on the many opportunities for discussion and for making new contacts, and experience the power of networking in person!
Your safety is our top priority: To this end, we continuously update our comprehensive hygiene and access concept - quite flexibly according to the local requirements of the authorities - and have a ready-made test concept in our pocket. This makes the W3+ Fair a safe meeting place for experts even in Corona times.
