28.430 visitors, 668 exhibitors from 40 countries and more than 174 million orders during the first quarter – with this triple opti finishes a successful trade show 2018. «opti 2018 was an important prologue and a successful final rehearsal for the opti premiere in 2019. The first time opening of a fifth hall and the spatial merging of the independent labels in hall C1 and C2 were a little foretaste of what is to come in the next year. Then opti will open a new chapter with two new halls» said Dieter Dohr, CEO of GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH.

The new space in hall B4 was equally popular among the exhibitors and the visitors: The pavilions of the countries South Korea, France, China and Japan as well as the new Futureshop were localised there. Moreover, the trade audience of opti 2018 was able to experience 17 percent more exhibitors than in the year before, machine companies were granted a space to present their technologies and regular companies were able to extend their booth.

For its exceptional wooden glasses the Spanish label Nina Mûr was awarded the desired Blogger Spectacle Award from eyewear and fashion bloggers from all over Europe. Around 30 of those met at opti on Saturday for the second Blogger Spectacle to crown their favourite of the 16 opti box exhibitors. Another part of this international blogger gathering was an exclusive meet and greet with a group of favourite labels that the influencer had chosen themselves: neubau eyewear, Einstoffen, monogram, SALT., Lunor, götti, Maui Jim and the glass partner Zeiss Vision Care. Now we wait for the new edition, that will take place from the 25 to 27 January 2019 in the halls C1 to C6 on the Fairground Munich.
