opti 2020: Spotlight on to the world of optics

60,000 m² jam-packed with the latest in optometry and ophthalmology, represented by 605 exhibitors from 39 countries: opti 2020 was a complete success. This year, the new, stylish Entrance North-East and Entrance North-West led visitors into the bustling halls. 28,000 trade visitors from 93 countries casted their votes with their feet – and came to get the latest trends and developments right at the beginning of the year.

A good feeling from the very start: This is what opti 2020 offered to its visitors as soon as they stepped foot in the trade show halls. Once again, the optic family’s annual kick-off meeting clarified the importance of opti and Germany as its location for the industry, as demonstrated by the slightly increased number of international guests. As a result, all eyes in the global scene were on the 2020 edition of the trade show.

Stuttgart and Munich: One trade show, two locations

As of 2021, opti will be alternating between two locations. In odd years, the trade show will take place in Stuttgart, starting next year from 8 to 10 January 2021.  The reason for this is that the location in Munich is no longer offered by Messe München at the usual time, due to the leading global trade show BAU as well as a strategic shift in the Fairground Munich’s portfolio of events during odd-numbered years.
