Regional Focus on Florida in July 2009 OLE

For all Florida Photonics Cluster members:

The magazine "Optics & Laser Europe" (OLE), published by the Institute of Physics (IOP), is planning an article on Florida photonics for their July 2009 issue. This is a very good opportunity to highlight the tremendous industry, education, and economic support capabilities we have in Florida in the optics and photonics field.

The magazine is offering a special advertising deal for FPC members for the July OLE issue. Here is a summary:
o An introductory print/online package that offers exposure in both "Optics & Laser Europe" and the website
o The package comprises three quarter-page adverts in OLE (one in the July issue; others whenever suitable), plus a corporate partnership on - which offers companies visibility throughout the site.
o The package price is less than half the published rate card. The magazine will also be creating a dedicated regional focus page on that will feature the regional focus article in OLE plus supplementary information that they will gather while preparing the article. There will be sponsorship opportunities available on that page, which I will discuss with Rob Fisher, OLE Advertising Manager when I meet him next month at the SPIE DSS meeting.

If you are interested in the advertising package, contact Chris Thomas (; +44 117 930 1090). Chris can also provide you the IOP media kit for pricing and schedules.

If you are interested in any of the following, please contact me (
a) Being contacted for an interview for the Florida Focus article in the July 2009 OLE issue
b) Contributing to sponsorship of the dedicated regional focus page on Florida on, with your company logo and URL link appearing on it (probably will cost ~$500 per company)
