Held for the first time in 1998, opti is an annual event that runs in the month of January. Because of this, it’s usually the first place where new products are announced and professionals come face to face with trends as they form. The halls host the entire value chain of products - frames, lenses, contact lenses, refraction and diagnostics, IT, machines, workshop equipment, shop fitting and decoration, trade products and accessories. There’s quite a lot of programming that takes place at opti and each year has its unique presentations and talks. However, you can be certain of a few main support events. We’re talking about popular events and areas like the Blogger Spectacle, opti BOXES and opti SHOWCASE.
