International eyewear show with focus on independent eyewear brands.

copenhagen specs is an independent trade fair with the ambition of creating an environment and a place where opticians go to be inspired and updated on the international eyewear industry.

The ambition of copenhagen specs is to deliver a vibrant eyewear show giving the opticians an opportunity to meet trendsetting eyewear manufacturers that have a visionary and artistic approach to eyewear design. By meeting the eyewear designers in person, opticians have a unique opportunity to learn the story behind every brand and get an insight into the visionary and artistic approach to eyewear design.

We are very pleased to have Lokomotivværkstedet – a more than 100 years old train repair shop – as our venue. It’s a place that provides a historical, authentic and inspirational atmosphere, which we consider to be the perfect surroundings for the originality and creativity we expect to see at the fair.

Copenhagen is naturally the geographical center of Scandinavia with potential to become an international platform for beautiful and innovative eyewear design.


In the heart of Copenhagen

The eyewear show takes place at Lokomotivværkstedet, in the heart of wonderful Copenhagen. This gives the visitors a unique possibility of experiencing the cozy, yet metropolitan harbour city with its beautiful architecture, plenty of cafés, restaurants, cultural events and pulsating nightlife.

The location

Lokomotivværkstedet is a stunning building located in the center of wonderful Copenhagen. The building is more than 100 years old and with its raw and autentic look it is a perfect setting to showcase beautiful eyewear design.

The Train Workshop’s floor-to-ceiling windows and roof structure made of wood and glass gives a nice light filled atmosphere. And despite the new entrance area, the new wardrobe and modern toilet facilities, this industrial venue appears as authentic as possible. In this industrial universe only your imagination will set the limit.

While located very close to the center of Copenhagen, visitors can also have a taste of the cosy, yet metropolitan habour capital, with its amazing architecture, plenty of cafés, restau-rants, cultural events and a pulsating nightlife.
