opti trend talk with YouTube star und book author Philipp Steuer
Immediately before the awards ceremony, the opti trend talk will take place in the opti FORUM at 12:00 pm. Influencers and social media experts will share insights into their businesses. The title is “More Visibility in Optometry with Social Media?” Along with other social media experts, YouTube star and book author Philipp Steuer will be taking the stage. In lectures and workshops worldwide at companies such as Red Bull, Disney, and McDonald’s, he shares his knowledge in a succinct, compact way.
During a group Walk&Blog tour in the afternoon, the bloggers will visit seven exhibitors who work in the area of spectacles frames: Coblens, EINSTOFFEN, frost eyewear, HEADRIX, KBL eyewear, MARKUS T, and Wagner + Kühner GmbH. These top 7 were selected by the influencers themselves, who were given the chance to choose their favorites from a group of applicants. In addition, they will pay a visit to HOYA, the glass partner for BLOGGER SPECTACLE this year, as well as the contact lens manufacturer Alcon, who is also a partner of BLOGGER SPECTACLE 2019.
