A variety of products were exhibited such as the multi-wavelength LED light source and optical sensor for the photonic material part field, the LED transparent display and DDBOX for the optical display information field, the data monitoring system for emergency situations and safety accident preparation for the optical imaging information field, and the solar power with supercapacitor storage for the photonic energy product field.

In addition, there were publicity halls for variety of fields including the global distribution support project of photonic convergence products to promote domestic pilot installation projects, an Medical Photonic Industry Cooperative hall where visitors can experience thermal treatment devices and scalp care, LIDAR convergence industry hall commercialization support project result publicity hall, and finally, an employment safety preemptive response package support project publicity hall where various experiences such as employment consulting and oil therapy can be experienced.

The marketing center from the association and companies invited about 100 buyers from 17 countries to hold an export consultation meeting. These meetings are expected to give opportunities for companies to escape struggles with the export economy stagnation. For buyers who are unable to visit during this exhibition, consultation is conducted through the ‘non-face-to-face Online Consultation General Situation Room’.

At the conference events, the 12th Photonic Medical Health Symposium, PLC·LIDAR technology exchange seminar, and MEMS-based industrial technology exchange were held during the exhibition period to report the latest technology and market trends.
