LUX Delegation to Berlin

16 - 20 April 2018


“I have attended many conference and exhibitions. This is the first time I met so many CEOs and decision makers of Photonics companies. Thus it is a great networking session and very useful to understand market trends perceived by CEO and the business strategies they adopted. Thanks to Lux for arranging this delegation visit. A job well done!”

Dr. Phua Poh Boon, Founder & CTO                                                                                                                                                        LightHaus Photonics Pte Ltd


“Thank you LUX for connecting us to EPIC meeting. It is a great event as you hardly find a meeting with all CEO particularly from the photonics industries gather under one roof and sharing their ideas.”

Mr Matthew Tan, Senior Director of Sales & Marketing and Worldwide Customer Engineering                                                              Silterra Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.


“Thank you very much for the very well organized LUX delegation trip to Berlin! Thank you that Moveon got the chance to participate in this trip. The LUX-Delegation trip offered on the one hand an unparalleled opportunity to get direct access to renowned photonics companies in the frame of the company visits and on the other hand to meet with and connect to top management members out of leading European Photonics Companies within the EPIC Annual General Meeting event.                                                                         Beyond that, the trip itself served very much as a kind of a teambuilding event to get to know the other LUX-Delegation members better over a longer period of time.                                                                                                                                                                             Thank you again for the work you have put in to make it such a tremendous success full trip.”

Mr Guenter Arens, Technical Director, European Business Office                                                                                                          Moveon Technologies Pte Ltd


“Thank you very much for giving Singapore Asahi/Quantum Technologies the opportunity to participate in the 15th EPIC AGM in Berlin. Visiting some German companies in Berlin had given us a good insight on the level of technology these companies had already achieved. This event has also provided us a good insight of European industry and hope to forge some good collaborations with these companies in the near future.”

Ms Kai Hwa Chew , R&D Director                                                                                                                                                               Quantum Chemical Technologies Pte Ltd


“It was good meeting you all for this very informative journey. To me it's not about the trip,  it's about the relationships that developed from the contacts we have made, and for that I am grateful, for all that I have met, and will eventually call partner, colleague, friend and the opportunities we can create as a group, individually and for our respective businesses.”

Mr Bryan K Patmon, Senior Vice President (Sales & Marketing)                                                                                                             Denselight Semiconductors -  a Singapore-based division of POET Technologies


"As a company launching a new photonic based solar technology, part of The Freyr Group's challenge is finding the outside intellectual & material resources necessary for realizing our vision. As new LUX members we had the opportunity to attend the 15th European Photonics Industial Consortium in Berlin. At EPIC we found everything we need and much more. The institutions and business we met there have already enabled us to cut millions in anticipated R&D costs and saved 2 years of time. It was by far our most fruitful conference."

Mr Chance Wanlass - Founder                                                                                                                                                                                   The Freyr Group Pte Ltd


“It had been an enlightening experience for Enterprise Singapore to meet EPIC and visit its member companies. EPIC’s partnership with LUX Photonics Consortium is very useful to establish networks for potential partnership. We are glad to see some potential collaboration between Singapore and European companies, and look forward to more of such opportunities through EPIC & LUX.”

Mr Ho Chi Bao, Director                                                                                                                                                                                         Ms Tan Sock Cheng, Deputy Director                                                                                                                                                                   Mr Lim Ke Xin, Development Partner                                                                                                                                                                Enterprise Singapore (ESG)


“EDB joined the EPIC AGM and part of LUX delegation visit to Berlin on 18-19 April 2018. It was a very insightful expert exchange session and excellent networking platform. I’ve made good contacts within the EU & Singapore photonics consortia.”
