Optatec 2020: Leading Trade Fair for Optical Technologies Invites Visitors to Frankfurt

As an outstanding meeting place for the industry sector, the Optatec international trade fair for optical technologies, components and systems is extending its invitation to visit Frankfurt for the 15th time. The internationally established trade fair will take place in Frankfurt from 12 to 14 May 2020, and is already building upon the positive mood which prevailed in2018.

Optatec 2018 was promoted successfully with 540 exhibitors from 32 nations and 5803 visitors from 45 countries. High levels of exhibitor internationalism will once again attract many interested expert visitors to Frankfurt in 2020, who will be able to gather information about worldwide offerings for products, stand-alone and system solutions, as well as applications from the broad-based field of optical technologies, during the 3-day event.


An Initial Glance at the Complementary Programme in 2020

Optatec has long since advanced and evolved into a global community and business platform. Visitors benefit from the event as a market opener and companion in solving their respective tasks. Beyond this, Optatec is an important knowledge platform that generates suitable opportunities for the transfer of know-how and new contacts with its world-class supplementary programme – for example at the exhibitor forum with its interesting presentations concerning issues which are relevant to the industry sector. Visitors will also be able to attend a SPECTARIS workshop dealing with DIN ISO 10110 in 2020, in order to find out about the current status and planned amendments for the creation of drawings for optical elements and systems.


Opportunities for the Industry Sector’s Next Generation at Optatec 2020

Attractive options are also available for the industry sector’s upcoming generation at Optatec 2020: the technology park, established by an association of universities, provides young people interested in technology with insights into research. A job board powered by Optence e.V. offers an overview of the industry’s market situation, which continues it’s positive development because advancing automation and digitalisation is based on modern optical technologies in all industry sectors. A pupils’ day has also been planned which is intended to arouse interest in optical technologies.


Worldwide Offerings for Optical Technologies Only at Optatec

Optatec takes place once every two years. Thematic attention is focused on optical components, materials, coatings, optomechanical components and modules, fibre optics, laser components, photonics and additive manufacturing systems, as well as industrial image processing and optical metrology. There’s no comparable event anywhere in the world with regard to orientation and internationalism – Optatec is a world-class, exclusive platform for technology transfer and the exchange of knowledge. It bridges the gap between scientific findings, new technologies and practical applicability. As a result, investment decisions can be made in a more targeted manner. Successful contract awards underscore the benefits of this trade fair for exhibitors and visitors alike.
