#WeQuantum at Quantum Effects
We had the pleasure and privilege of showcasing our activities and sharing our passion for quantum science and technology at the Quantum Effects exhibition and conference in Stuttgart
Last week, the first Quantum Effects exhibition and conference was held at Messe Stuttgart. The aim was to provide an arena to showcase the potential of application-oriented quantum technologies and to foster exchange. For IQST, it was a highly successful event, providing a unique opportunity to reach out to a wide audience and to share our vision of how innovative technologies emerge from fundamental quantum physics.
Prominent guests at the IQST Quantum Effects booth
We were delighted that so many people stopped by, interacted with our exhibits — from a virtual lab tour to hands-on quantum-optics experiments to real quantum devices — and asked questions. And we were particularly pleased that so many young visitors, including school classes, came to take with us a dive into the quantum world.
We were happy to meet and interact with many visitors to the IQST booth, which was part of the joint stand of the QuantumBW network. Among those who came to visit were several prominent guest, including Winfried Kretschmann, Minister-President of the State of Baden-Württemberg, and Petra Olschowski, Baden-Württemberg Minister for Science, Research and the Arts, as well as high-ranking industry representatives — all of whom showed great interest in the exhibits and the quantum technology behind them.
Lots of action at our Quantum Effects stand
On display was also the strength of the quantum community in Baden–Württemberg. We shared a stand with many of our colleagues, collaborators and friends across the QuantumBW network. Countless helping hands made the event a success, from planning how to share our passion for quantum science and technology with others, to setting up the stand, to guiding our visitors through the exhibits.
Among the most popular features on the IQST booth at last week’s Quantum Effects exhibition and conference in Stuttgart was our Photo Box. Many visitors took the opportunity to get entangled with Alice, Bob and Schrödinger’s cat — in one state or another, or both — and to take a print home as a souvenir.
The team spirit was also evident at the Networking Night after the first day of the event, which provided a welcome opportunity to network in a relaxed atmosphere — and to exchange ideas for the next Quantum Effects fair and conference, which will take place on 8 and 9 October 2024, again in Stuttgart.
We hope to see you all there!
