While the automotive industry progressively resumes production all over the globe, we are learning week after week that events are cancelled or postponed. DVN Workshops are right in the same line, while lighting technologies are going so fast. It’s difficult to gather an audience for lectures with everyone keeping 2 m distance, to network and to visit exhibition booths with masks and without the usual proximity of experts presenting the technology.
And so the DVN Workshop in Tokyo, originally slated for the end of August, is postponed to 1-2 December. I hope the lighting community will be at that time happy to be there, to network and listen to the speakers, like last January at our wonderful Workshop in Munich.
To continue presenting lighting technologies during the disruption, we’ve organised an online technical meeting with EPIC, the European Photonics Industry Consortium, on Wednesday 27 May from 15:00 to 17:30 CEST (09:00 to 11:30 EDT, 06:00 to 08:30 PDT, 22:00 to 00:30 JST). VIP speakers will present the latest lighting technologies, and I am convinced it will be fruitful to put together experts on photonics with experts in lighting. This week we introduce EPIC; watch for more detail about the event next week—meanwhile, please save the date.
Meanwhile, don’t miss this week’s in-depth coverage of Flex-N-Gate, a global tier-1 powerhouse with 68 integrated manufacturing facilities worldwide and 23,000 employees.
Stay well and stay safe,
