The 2023 European Lens Summit was a success!
The annual Lens Summit took a hiatus from the Pacific Northwest in 2023 and took place in London, United Kingdom on May 20th and 21st. Koerner Camera was happy to be partner with our friends at CVP to host the event at their Brentford, London location.
The Lens Summit will return to the Pacific Northwest in 2024.
ABOUT THE LENS SUMMIT
Koerner Camera hosted the first annual Pacific Northwest Lens Summit in 2017 at our Portland, Oregon location. The event was the incarnation of an idea: what if there was a smaller, more focused event just for cinema optics, without the often overwhelming nature of a larger tradeshow? To fill that need, the PNW Lens Summit was born.
Attendees of the Lens Summit have access to:
Hands on experience with the latest cinema lenses and optical accessories from the biggest brands in the industry
In person interactions with some of the foremost cine optics experts in the world
Workshops & presentations hosted by our vendors
Customized training for lens technicians
Food truck on site, free drinks & more!
"The beauty of the Lens Summit is that it’s small enough, focused enough, and casual enough for attendees and vendors to have a real opportunity for one-to-one interaction."

VIRTUAL LENS SUMMIT
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the Virtual Lens Summit was born as an alternative to the annual in-person Pacific Northwest Lens Summit. The virtual series consisted of a series of online seminars/presentations where manufacturers showcased their latest cinema products and answered questions from virtual attendees. Our desire was to continue bringing the international community together to share products, exchange ideas and information, and ultimately reach more people during a time when in person interaction was not possible.
As of 2022, the Lens Summit has resumed as an annual in-person event.
