Exposure Gallery does Photokina
Exposure Gallery Does Photokina.
The 33rd photokina, which ended on Sunday (21 September 2014), was a great success. Some 185,000 visitors from more than 160 countries experienced a trade fair that presented a rarely seen image of youthfulness and freshness.
Action cams and livestyle cams, wearables, multicopters and professional film equipment supplemented the diverse array of the photographic and imaging industry offering and proved that photography and filming is very much on trend. The international (trade) public took full advantage of the opportunity to try out new offerings and exchange news and views with other photo enthusiasts.
Exhibitors as well were highly gratified with the way the trade fair went and marked the highly international trade visitor component out for particular praise. They accounted for 47.7 per cent of visitors, 44.3 per cent of them from abroad.
There was particularly strong growth in visitor numbers from the USA, Asia and South East Asia and from the Oceania region. Gerald Böse, President and Chief Executive Officer of Koelnmesse GmbH was suitably satisfied: “Cologne is 'the place to be' for the photographic and imaging industry. This is where the industry charts the future course of the business.”
