Opti Munich to Kick Off 2014 Trade Show Schedule


MUNICH—The 16th Annual Opti Munich will be held from Jan. 10 to 12, 2014 at the Messe Munchen fairground.

“Demand from exhibitors from Germany and abroad wanting to take part in this event remains strong,” said Dieter Dohr, CEO and president of GHM Gesellschaft fur Handwerksmessen mbH, the organizer of the show. “Opti is the international market place where the trade visitors can find—in January, right at the start of the year—all that they need for the next 12 months of business.”

According to organizers, all the key players in the market, plus newcomers, will be presenting their products and services in the four exhibition halls at the fairground. More than 23,000 trade visitors from Germany and abroad will be looking to Opti to kick off the year. Around 500 exhibitors will be presenting their new products in 40,000 square meters of exhibition space.

“Opti has established itself as a platform for premieres right at the beginning of the year,” added Dohr. “Many companies have adapted their product cycles to Opti, which means that Munich is the place to take a first look at lots of new ideas and developments.”

Each year opti attracts more and more exhibitors and visitors from outside Germany. Opti in 2013 featured 491 companies from 31 countries, and 23,243 trade visitors from more than 70 countries, organizers said.
