To the offer


"opti 2024 impressed with a high frequency and a very good atmosphere among the visitors. At the opti CAFÉ powered by ZVA, we had some great discussions in which we noticed a growing interest in the profession’s development and the topic of vocational training and further education. Our participation in the hub discussions also provided new insights into the wishes of opticians and optometrists."

Kai Jaeger, Vice President of the Central Association of Opticians and Optometrists (ZVA)

"opti has once again developed into an absolute gem. An industry gathering par excellence. We’ll be back here in 2025!"

Dieter Funk, owner of FUNK Eyewear

"We are a fan of opti and would like to exhibit here again in 2025. A big thank you to the trade show management for responding to us as exhibitors to such an extent and for taking many of our wishes and constructive criticism into account. It was so nice that we, as exhibitors, were able to have our say and be heard – the keyword here being the round table in Frankfurt. We had great visits, wonderful conversations, were able to network excellently and above all – the main reason we're here – we sold very well."

Christian Seitz, CEO of the medium-sized frame manufacturer Vistan Brillen in Schwäbisch Gmünd

"After a year's break, we are pleasantly surprised by this year's opti. The past few days have not only met our expectations, but even exceeded them. The positive atmosphere at the trade show lays the foundation for further intensive discussions this coming year."

Thomas Smits, Managing Director of Silhouette Germany and Switzerland

"We are very satisfied with opti, which was extremely successful for us. We consider personal contact with our customers very important and their many smiling faces showed us that both sides enjoyed meeting on site. For Rodenstock itself, the trade show was very successful – both on the sales side and in terms of the atmosphere. We look forward to next time."

Thomas Pfanner, General Manager DACH (Germany, Austria, Switzerland), Rodenstock

"opti is back! We are very satisfied, had many visitors, many good discussions – especially on the subject of myopia, which we were able to bring further into the market. We are delighted that we have been able to further position ourselves here as a leading contact lens manufacturer."

Johannes Zupfer, General Manager DACH (Germany, Austria, Switzerland), CooperVision

"GHM's great commitment and many strategic considerations over the past twelve months have taken effect at all levels and have paid off completely. The halls were full, the many opti fans resolutely defied the rail strike and in some cases simply switched to other means of transport. There were lots of places to meet, the wide aisles were wonderful and those interested in further training were able to take advantage of a broad range of further training programmes in the various themed hubs. And don’t forget the amazing atmosphere, which was really infectious everywhere and gave us all a lot of courage."

Mirjam Rösch, Chair of Consumer Optics of the industry association SPECTARIS
