photokina: 08.–11.05.2019

What is changing

photokina 2018+

photokina is setting new standards as a provider of impulses: as of 2018, the world's leading trade fair for imaging will take place annually.

It will in future thus optimally reflect the fast-paced nature and the ever briefer innovation cycles of an increasingly digitalised industry. As of 2019 the trade fair will also have a new date in May. In addition to innovations from the core areas of the imaging workflow, the entire range of products, applications and services of relevance for imaging shall in future be presented in Cologne.

New schedule and dates

For the 2018 event, the schedule is changing: it will take place from Wednesday, 26 September to Saturday, 29 September, and thus enable a more compact, more intensive trade fair experience.

photokina 2019 takes place from Wednesday, 8 May to Saturday, 11 May 2019.

We look forward to four intensive days of "Imaging Unlimited"!

The digital transformation offers perspectives and potential for value creation. photokina 2018+ assures a larger range of state of the art products in Cologne and will convince the young imaging culture.

Rainer Führes
CEO of the photo industry association (PIV)

photokina has always continued to develop further over time, just like the products, services and the market environment presented there. The next logical step is an annual, attractive platform.
