The article focuses on the trade show which brings together laser industries in Stuttgart, Germany. The show takes into account the exhibition of system solutions in laser material processing. Organizers of the show failed in emphasizing laser technology as commented by exhibitors at other trade shows. The author believes that the show may set the pattern for future and more focused exhibitions.
