The world feels at home in Cologne, where people meet for a Kölsch, a chat or simply a laugh. Life in Cologne is vivacious.
Potokina (September 18 to 23, 2012) is the year's key event for the international photography and imaging specialist trade. Trade dealers from all over the world will come to Cologne to find out about the sector's latest trends, establish business contacts and order products for the period of high turnover in autumn and winter.
On 18th September 2012, the world's largest and most important ordering event for the international photography and imaging sector will once again open its doors in Cologne. It's already certain that all of the market-relevant companies will present their products and services to an international audience at the World of Imaging. Never before have almost all of the major imaging companies - ranging from Canon, Epson and Leica to Panasonic, Fujifilm, Sigma and Lowepro - registered to take part in photokina so far in advance. This means that photokina 2012 will once again present the complete spectrum of the global imaging market. photokina's organizers - Koelnmesse and the Photographic Industry Association - expect approximately 1,200 suppliers from more than 40 countries to attend the fair in 2012. More than 180,000 visitors from over 160 countries attended the World of Imaging in 2010.
