From September 1st on, trade fairs may take place again in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. The upcoming opti, which will be held in Stuttgart from 8th to 10th of January 2021, will then be the first ophthalmic optics trade show within a year, where the industry can meet again. In order to ensure the necessary hygiene measures for a safe get-together, the opti organizers are in close contact with Stuttgart Messe and the responsible authorities in the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, so that the specifications and recommendations that are required for the safe organization of trade fairs can be implemented when planning opti 2021.
The safety, health and well-being of all exhibitors, visitors, media representatives, partners and employees are first priority and form the base for a successful participation of the trade fair. The hygiene concept, which derives from the current requirements of the “Actions against the spread of the corona virus of the State of Baden-Württemberg”, valid from 1st of July, 2020, and the “Ordinance of the Ministry of Economics and the Ministry of Social Affairs for the containment of transmission of the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) at trade fairs, exhibitions and congresses”, serves as a reliable guideline for overall planning security.
“We are pleased to be able to provide our exhibitors and all other stakeholders with concrete measures that will make opti 2021 a successful and secure business platform. In January, the industry will not have met for a whole year – which makes opti 2021 one of the most important event to date”, says Dieter Dohr, Chairman of the Management Board of Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen (GHM).
