GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen Gmbh is the company responsible for bringing Opti to the big stage. The international trade fair is held early in the year. In particular, it is hosted in January, thus allowing Opti to set the tone and the trends for the upcoming year. Editions usually last for three days.

Working hours are as follows—10:00 am / 19:00 pm on Friday, 09:00 am / 19:00 pm on Saturday, 09:00 am / 17:00 pm on Sunday. When it comes to commuting, you are in luck.
