Thanks for Your Support

Our thanks to all the APOMA members, Optifab exhibitors and attendees. With your support, we've pulled off the largest ever Optifab! Exhibitor space sold out, and 1655 attendees came into Rochester's Convention Center to learn about the latest in optical fabrication.

The exhibition opened with a ribbon cutting by Jim Sydor; Rick Nasca; Phil Stahl, NASA Senior Optical Physicist and SPIE President Elect; and Maureen Duggan, Rochester Economic Development Director representing Congresswoman Louise Slaughter.

The APOMA-sponsored clambake was also the biggest ever, filling the Hyatt ballrooms with almost 500 friends in the industry.

Next up? Photonics West! We hope to see you at the APOMA Annual Meeting February 5. Until then, visit the website to learn more about APOMA, or contact us with your news! We're happy to share your latest innovations or company announcements on the new APOMA website.
