Photokina 2018
« on: May 15, 2018, 10:41:41 »
This year Photokina is Sept. 25-30. Perhaps NG members could consolidate their presence there to make this another NG meet-up?

Good idea, but I will be in South Africa  ;)
But posting here will enable us all to know what the news are :)

Sept. 28 will be the Photokina visiting day for the NG Crew and any  associates.

If any NG member plans to visit Photokina that day, please let us know. An informal meet-up would be great.

We usually arrive around 11 o'clock, go straight to the Nikon booth followed by bratwurst and beer at the foodcourt :)

Plan to also visit the Voigtlander, Zeiss, Metabones, Novoflex, etc and check if they will have any upcoming Zee mount lenses or adapters on their roadmaps.
Cheers,
Jan Anne Offereins

I'll be travelling on a motorbike through Europe in this date and will consider visiting the Photokina.
My plan was to got from Barcelona to Munich and back.
Koln is 500km away north of my route, but this is no problem considering the autobahns.
Getting a hotel there at the last minute could be the worst.

Hi Aguinaldo,

I might be able to squeeze in a fifth guest, the beds are all taken but we'll figure something out. If you bring your own sleeping gear things will be easy, plenty of space inside and outside mi casa for an air mattress or tent.

My place (near Nijmegen) is 170km North of Cologne though but when you back South you can add the Netherlands to the long list of countries visited by bike ;D
Cheers,
Jan Anne Offereins

Thank you very much for the offer Jan Anne, but I'll be with my wife and we'll not be carrying sleeping bags (no space in the bike).
Do you think it is possible to find a hotel room in Koln during the event?
Best regards.

Only one way to find out which is to check the online bookings sites I guess.

That said you could easily leave Koln after the fair and sleep somewhere else, whereas the exhibitors need to return the next morning the two of probably won't :)

I think I'll be there.
Won't buy the tickets yet because of the randomic nature of my motorbike trip.
