All the topics, one trade fair. photokina covers the entire spectrum of imaging: from image capture to image processing and storage to image output. This is where the trends and innovations are presented and where the spotlight is on groundbreaking technological developments including mobile imaging, connectivity, and moving images.

The photokina concept is rounded out by an impressive program of events with congresses, workshops, symposiums, photography exhibitions and many special events at the exhibition centre and at sites all over Cologne.
