photokina & DIGILITY Colocate to Offer New Dimensions of Imaging


Cologne, Germany—As of 2018, DIGILITY will take place in parallel with photokina. It will, however, remain an independent event. The B2B conference and expo focuses on technologies and services related to virtual, augmented and mixed reality, 3D, 360° and also artificial intelligence.

Following its premiere in 2016, DIGILITY 2017 has experienced significant growth with 65 exhibitors and more than 1,400 visitors. For the visitors of photokina, the proximity with DIGILITY opens up new dimensions of imaging.

“With photokina and DIGILITY, we present an exceptional yearly business and communication hotspot for imaging technologies in all their facets,” said Christoph Werner. Werner is head of the Digital, Entertainment and Mobility section of Koelnmesse. “Digital realities are not only a decisive technology but make for attractive content pieces in the future of imaging. All those interested will find the corresponding expertise and fitting partners.”

DIGILITY Focuses on Digital Reality

As an independent event, it will continue to concentrate on the segment of digital reality. In addition, it will continue to expand its offering in this category. Software, hardware and services from the fields of virtual, mixed and augmented reality, 3D, computer-generated imaging, 360° imaging, as well as artificial intelligence will be the focus of the conference program and the exhibition.

DIGILITY takes place September 26–27, 2018 in hall 5.1 of Koelnmesse. The tickets for DIGILITY will also include entry into photokina. Moreover, visitors to photokina can redeem a DIGILITY ticket on-site.
