Apart from receiving a comprehensive picture of the market and seeing the products of numerous established exhibitors, visitors to Opti 2014 can also look forward to a number of new exhibitors who may turn out to be the optics stars of tomorrow.
As the international trade show for Optics & design, Opti 2014, to be held from 10 to 12 January 2014 in Munich, presents the entire spectrum of optics, ranging from frames, ophthalmic lenses, contact lenses and low-vision products to shop set-up, technical equipment and devices. In doing so, Opti is the platform for product premieres of international market leaders and startups alike.
New ideas, continuing-education opportunities, personal contact with business associates and an extensive market overview; there are plenty of reasons to visit Opti 2014 in Munich. Some of the highlights include showcasing of new products, direct comparisons, access to quick and compact information, and several ways for opticians to profit from the comprehensive range of exhibits at the international trade show for optics & design.
Why did the companies choose to exhibit at Opti from 10 to 12 January 2014 in Munich and what will they be presenting at their premiere? The companies provide answers to these questions in short statements before the trade show.
From Madrid, Jose Paredes of mó eyewear says, “mó eyewear is the best-selling brand in prescription frames in Spain. We have just started our international expansion and we are confident that we can bring our ‘democratic fashion’ philosophy to the rest of Europe – and Opti is the perfect spot for it.”
Tokai from Belgium will be showcasing ‘1.76 Index lenses’ at Opti in Munich. “Tokai is the only lens manufacturer in the world offering 1.76 index lenses”, says CEO Kurt Leuridan, “they are the thinnest in the world.” The company will also be showing their new Tokai Blue Coating. “It filters not only blue colour light but also ultraviolet rays, thus reducing glare, improving contrast and relaxing the eyes”, Leuridan says. “We visited Opti in recent years and noticed the growing importance of this trade show.”
“A lot of people advised us to be at Opti because it’s one of the most important fairs in the sector – especially for creative companies like ours,” say Anne Masanet and Karoline Bothorel-Bolzinger of Very French Gangsters from France. They will be presenting their collection here in Munich and “some models are being produced exclusively for Opti,” as the company spokespersons duly pointed out.
