opti 2022: A is for annual highlight

May 05, 2022
opti - chains and frames

A is for annual highlight for the DACH optics market: After the break due to the pandemic, the opti in Munich is the long-awaited meeting place for the DACH market. The international trade show for optics & design has been around for almost 25 years. In 2022, it once again offers specialist visitors the complete optics spectrum from spectacle frames to spectacle lenses, contact lenses, refraction, diagnostics, and low vision, right through to shop fittings and technical equipment.

B is for opti BOXES: If you want to see what the glasses designs of tomorrow look like, don’t miss the opti BOXES. Selected young designers and start-ups will be in the YES independent design area in Hall C2, showing how they interpret and implement the world of good vision (and good looks), whether it’s about fashion, sustainability or functional, technical and marketing aspects. These are also precisely the criteria for the opti BOX AWARD supported by eyebizz, which will be awarded for the first time by an international jury of experts on the Saturday of the trade fair at 12.30 p.m. in the opti BOXES area.

C is for coronavirus: Over the last two years, the pandemic has determined our public and private lives. The wide-ranging contact restrictions also had an impact on the entire trade show industry: around 70 percent of all planned trade shows in 2020/2021 were cancelled or postponed, and opti also had to be cancelled once. In 2022, the show takes place as a one-off May edition – but then without access restrictions, without vaccination and testing rules, without a limit on the number of visitors and without a legal obligation to wear a mask (

D is for leading trade show in the DACH market: opti is THE meeting place for the optics industry for the region of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and beyond. Launched in 2008 with 18,000 trade visitors and nearly 360 exhibitors from 20 countries, opti 2020, which was the last opti before the coronavirus, had 605 exhibitors from 39 countries and nearly 26,000 visitors. This represented a growth of 47 percent for trade visitors, 69 percent for exhibitors and 90 percent for participating countries. Now that trade shows can restart successfully and travel is increasingly possible without restrictions once more, the opti is pursuing its successful internationalization strategy again. > C is for coronavirus

E is for entry: The entry to opti is via the north-western entrance, directly at the western parking garage, or via the northern entrance, near the P3 and P4 parking areas. The Messe West and Messe Ost underground stations are within easy walking distance (10 minutes) of the north-western entrance and the northern entrance respectively. Alternatively, there is a shuttle bus available. opti 2022 is open from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm on the Friday and Saturday of the trade show. On the closing day, Sunday, the show will also open at 9.00 am but closes at 5.00 pm. > O is for online tickets

F is for four-hall concept: opti 2022 offers the usual representative cross-section of the entire optics spectrum, with a whole range of trends and innovations. In addition to many new elements, tried-and-tested features also await participants in the opti. The familiar four-hall concept promises a carefree, concentrated visit to the trade show with the well-known opti atmosphere.  Halls C1 and C2 will contain the spectacle frames collections of the licensed brands and manufacturer brands as well as the YES independent design area and the opti BOXES. Hall C3 will also present licensed brands and manufacturer brands in the frames area, as well as everything for the stationary optician. In Hall C4, the manufacturers of spectacle lenses, contact lenses, contact lens accessories, refraction and diagnostics as well as IT and machines will present their innovations.
