Opti Munich 2019 took place on 25th- 27th January 2019. Once again I had the pleasure of being invited back to be part of the bloggers spectacle where we go around with the organisers of the show to check out some brands.
In the morning we were looking at the new start-up brands. Afterwards, we voted which new start-up got the bloggers spectacle award (basically the bloggers choice award). It is a nice job as we get to see lots of cool up and coming brands. After a spot of lunch we took another tour to see the brands we collectively voted in as the best 7 of the show.
Each of the best 7 told us more about their brand and key information on the collection then invited us to take a closer look. Again, a fun job as we get to try lots of glasses and get to know each brand a little more. For 2019, some of the brands such as Rova, KBL, Aigner and Liebeskind by Wagner+Kuhner all very kindly and gifted every blogger a pair of glasses or sunglasses. So, thank you! I feel very spoilt.
First of all, a massive well done to all the start-up brands we visited during the Bloggers Spectacle tour. It is hard to be a start-up, especially in this current economy. Each brand had their unique story so it was hard to just pick one winner. This year’s winner was Rounder Rounder from Hong Kong! My home City.
There were 15 brands to visit so it was a busy morning. Out of the 15, I will pick my personal top 3 and write about them in another blog post. If I write EVERYTHING here, it will be one long blog post!
From our tour of the top 7 brands, again, I will pick my favourite 3 and give you a more detailed low-down and my thoughts on their ranges. In case you are curious, the top 7 brands which got voted in from the list of 20 brands (I think it was 20) were, Coblens, EINSTOFFEN, Frost Eyewear, HEADRIX, KBL eyewear, MARKUS T and Wagner + Kuhner GmbH.
Keep following the next few MGAM blog posts to find out more about my favourite brands from the two tours.
Also, a THANK YOU to Opti Lens partner Hoya for hosting lunch for us.
Thank you again to the organisers of Opti GHM Group for looking after us and organising another fantastic show.
I hope to be invited back again next year. Roll on Opti 2020!
