Optatec focuses on the industry’s innovation potential like no other event of its kind. In cooperation with technological and institutional partners including the SPECTARIS association for the high-tech industries, Optence and OptecNet, Optatec offers an international showcase for advanced technologies. Exhibitors from Europe and all over the world display future technologies from the field of industrial optics and take advantage of Optatec to present their innovations and product premieres. With its targeted offerings for development and production, as well as industrial use of optical components, optomechanics, optoelectronics, fibre-optics, fibre-optic cables, laser components and manufacturing systems, Optatec has become well-established within the industry sector and provides a top-level platform which brings suppliers and users together.

Optatec provides the optical industry with the world’s most important information, communication and business platform in Frankfurt Exhibition Centre. In co-operation with conceptual sponsors as well as technology and institutional partners SPECTARIS (the German Industry Association for Photonics and Precision Engineering) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering (IOF), Optatec is presented as an international, high-tech shop window. The focus of the consistently target-group-specific portfolio is on the areas of fibre optics, photovoltaics, LED solutions and safety systems as well as production/medical technology. The increasing importance of optical technologies is also manifested in questions of energy and material efficiency as well as in such fundamental areas as the conservation of resources and environmental protection, where optical technologies offer practicable and affordable solutions.

The pragmatic mix of product and technical information in theory and practice, the unique representation of the entire process chain in hard and software, and a top-class supporting programme with workshops, specialist talks and discussion forums are the recognised trademarks of Optatec.
