Give me five! opti is getting an additional hall in 2018

opti is taking the next big step forward. In its next instalment at the Fairground Messe München, from the 12 - 14 January 2018, the exhibitors will present their new products in five halls, instead of in four.

The new hall B4

Hall B4 is a completely new addition: Here you will find further exhibitors of spectacle lenses, including a joint booth by Novacel and Leica, where they are presenting their co-operation at opti, as well as machine manufacturers and exhibitors from the supply industry.

Also in hall B4, you will find the international pavilions (including from France, China, Japan, and Korea) as well as the new knowledge-transfer area:

Trade visitors can find here the opti forum, with lectures from international top speakers, the opti campus, which will be expanded by international universities in 2018, and the new FUTURESHOP, which visualises the OPTIC 4.0 area with all information to the digitalisation in optometry.

New hall allocation

Visitors of opti can continue to count on the clear structure and the good orientation. "The placement of the exhibitors within the halls and the division by product categories will large remain unchanged," explains opti project manager Bettina Reiter. "But to sensibly integrate hall B4, the halls will be re-arranged":
