The Optatec is held every two years at the exhibition center Frankfurt am Main and is only open to trade visitors of the industry. She has already established itself as one of the most important international industry forums and displays the entire spectrum of optics, optoelectronics, laser technology, fiber optics but also applications and processes for the manufacture of optics and optical measuring and testing technology. The name Optatec stands for innovation and advancement in the field of optical technologies, such as no other event! It is the world's leading information, communications and business platform in the industry. The exhibitors from Europe and around the world show here the future technologies and also use the show for presentation of current innovations and product launches. The Optatec is accompanied by a high-profile program with lectures and discussions.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 3 days of the fair, from 07. June to 09. June 2016, about 570 exhibitors from 31 countries and 5600 visitors from 55 countries on the Optatec in Frankfurt.
