London, 12th May 2015: Nexus Business Media Ltd, organisers of the European Conference on Optical Communications Exhibition (ECOC), has today released their popular Market Focus agenda which spans across three days of the show in September. The ECOC Exhibition, which this year is in the striking city of Valencia, is the largest optical communications event in Europe and is the key meeting place for everyone in the fibre optic communication technology industry.

Now into its ninth year, Market Focus is just that; a focal point of the show and a popular platform to gain industry knowledge and insight into the latest technologies available. With returning sponsor Inphi, this year’s programme features a broad selection of informative and on-trend optical communications sessions and topics including Optics in Cloud Computing, Optoelectronic integration trends and applications, Packet-optical transport and Mass-market broadband fibre access.

“The Market Focus is one of the big attractions of the exhibition” explains Beverley Lucas, Group Event Manager for Nexus Business Media Ltd, organisers of the ECOC exhibition. “A vast array of professionals are already submitting their interest in speaking at Market Focus, and their opportunity to share work and industry related news.”

The topics for this year’s market focus have been decided by the ECOC Exhibition Advisory Panel, which includes global representatives from across the optical communications space with a selection of independent industry bodies, analyst groups, system vendors, telecom operators and component manufacturers. Industry experts Frank Chang from Inphi and Bimal Nayar from Network Rail, are the newest additions to the experienced committee which will again be chaired by Per Danielsen, editor of Telekommunikation.

“The 2015 Market Focus is predicted to once again be the pillar of the optical industry to speak at. Every year we get more great speakers who have always made an outstanding contribution and given ECOC its world class agenda.” Beverley confirmed.

In 2014, Market Focus surpassed all expectations, attracting over 1,700 attendees to the sessions over the three days of the exhibition. Audience levels grew for a third year in a row, thanks to presentations from leading companies including Orange Labs, Alcatel Lucent, Huawei, Telefonica, Ciena, Finisar and Adva.

This year’s ECOC exhibition is being held at the Feria Valencia, between 28th -30th September 2015 and will again provide an unrivalled opportunity for manufacturers, suppliers and service providers of optical communications products and services to come together to meet and network with top decision makers from across the industry.
