Business Forum Imaging Cologne 2017

March 1 to 2, 2017, photokina will present the Business Forum Imaging Cologne 2017 at the Congress Centre North of Koelnmesse. Under the theme “Moving beyond the limits”, the conference focuses on the opportunities that are created by the new enthusiasm of consumers about photography as well as by innovative products and technologies. Top-caliber speakers from all parts of the imaging industry will share marketing strategies with a distinguished audience of manufacturers, imaging service providers and photo retailers. They will also focus on new products, services and business models that address the dynamic development of the market and the digital society.

With its new concept “Imaging Unlimted”, photokina 2016 has shown the imaging market is not getting smaller but bigger, despite the well-known developments in traditional segments. Only companies and entrepreneurs, however, who are ready to embrace innovations and to move beyond the previous limits will be able to take advantage of the new digital dynamics. In addition to trends such as 4K, VR and 360° imaging as well as multicopters (drones), there will be amazing new introductions at the Business Forum Imaging Cologne 2017.

Complementing the top-caliber presentations of leading industry executives and independent experts, the sponsors of the Business Forum Imaging Cologne 2017 will present their innovations, products and services in a touch & try environment in the lobby of the Congress Centre North of Koelnmesse. As of today, the list of Gold Sponsors includes Canon, Cewe and di support; as Silver Sponsors Fujifilm, Kodak Alaris, Mitsubishi Electric, Mobile Photo Connect, Panasonic, PNA International, RPI and Yuneec support the event.

On the evening of March 1, a dinner event hosted by photokina will provide ample networking opportunities for attendees, speakers and sponsors.
