OFC stands as the largest global conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals. The program itself is comprehensive, spanning from research to marketplace, from components to systems and networks, and from technical sessions to the exhibition floor. Furthermore, for over 40 years, OFC has attracted attendees from all corners of the globe, providing a platform to meet and greet, teach and learn, make connections, and ultimately move the industry forward.

In particular, the 2024 Optical Fiber Communications Conference and Exhibition (OFC) surpassed all expectations, drawing a remarkable 12,500 attendees from 74 countries. Moreover, it featured over 630 exhibiting companies (a substantial 23% increase from 2023) and hosted a multitude of sessions with industry leaders and invited speakers.
