What is ECOC? The European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) is the largest conference on optical communication in Europe and one of the largest and most prestigious events in this field worldwide. The Nordic countries are happy to welcome ECOC back to Scandinavia, a high-tech innovation hub that successfully merges information and optical technologies within a creative business and scientific context. In September 2017, the 43rd edition of ECOC will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden. Gothenburg is in the heart of Scandinavia, with a characteristic maritime scenery at the waterfront, and the special Nordic light which has inspired artists for centuries.

Why Sponsor? ECOC is the place where you can gain maximum exposure on the market during the most important event in the optic communications field. By contributing to this conference you will be able to draw the attention of key players in this field, from all around the world. Furthermore, the conference is accompanied by the ECOC Exhibition, which means even more coverage and more people participating in this out standing event.

This is why we have set up a number of different sponsorship options so as to cater to the specific needs of your company. Sponsors will receive a range of benefits designed to raise the profile of their organisation at the conference and beyond.

Sustainability ECOC 2017 is working hard when planning the conference to reduce the impact on the environment and climate. We urge you as a sponsor of the event to keep this in mind and also actively work for the environment as you plan your participation in the conference.
