ECOC Exhibition 2020
Welcome to the ECOC Exhibition 2020
This year the exhibition takes place from 7-9 December 2020 and takes us back to Brussels in Belgium for our 25th anniversary event, returning to the location of the very first ECOC Exhibition in 1995. ECOC Exhibition remains the key meeting place for everyone in the fibre optic communication technology industry, attracting over 6,500 decision-makers from across the industry.
New for 2020: ECOC Exhibition Industry Awards
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the event, ECOC has introduced the ECOC Exhibition Industry Awards, in conjunction with Optical Connections.
The six awards will feature the following categories: Data Centre Innovation/Best Product, Innovative FTTx Product, Most Innovative Product, Optical Integration (SiPh and/or other), Optical Transport Award, and Best Fiber/ Fiber Component Product.
Market Focus 2020
We interviewed Market Focus Committee Chairman Michael Lebby, about this year’s sessions and his view on the success of Market Focus over the years, along with his tips on how to apply and what the Committee look for in a successful presentation proposal.
The Call for Speakers for this year’s Market Focus sessions closes on 11th September, but you still have time to get involved and submit your presentation proposal
Due to the current circumstances regarding Covid-19 the decision has been taken by the ECOC Management Committee and ourselves to postpone the event from September to December
The COVID-19 outbreak has presented everyone with unprecedented challenges and uncertainties. We have been closely monitoring the travel advice and public health guidelines issued through the official channels of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Government of Belgium, and Belgian public health agencies.
In light of uncertainties regarding international travel, in response to requests from local authorities, and in consultation with ECOC Management Committee we have decided to postpone ECOC 2020 to 6– 10 December 2020 (Exhibition dates 7-9) also in Brussels, Belgium.
By postponing ECOC 2020 we will significantly increase the possibility of a successful edition (in person !) of our exhibition and IMEC, our partner in organizing the conference. In light of this the conference has decided to postpone the paper submission deadline to 28 August, thus offering the possibility to complete the experiments which in many laboratories have come to a halt due to the corona crisis.
ECOC 2020, as a premier event worldwide in our field, will continue to provide you with a unique and high-level platform to present and exhibit your research results and products.
