Create, Discover, and Connect with Excire at Photokina 2018!


This year’s Photokina opens on September 26. Held every two years, in 2016, more than 190,000 visitors from 134 countries participated in the trade fair.


This year’s motto is: CREATE! DISCOVER! CONNECT!


As the world of imaging is changing so rapidly, the development cycles of products and services are getting shorter and shorter. The Excire team is proud to be exhibiting and will be sharing exciting trends and developments in AI-based photo-search and image analysis.

Where: Exhibition Center Cologne, Hall 5.1, Stand IL-003


When: 26.-29.09.2018


In keeping with the trend of new products and development, Excire will present a prototype of the next stage of photo search: the desktop version of Excire Search. In the future Excire Search will not only be available as an extension to Adobe Lightroom, but in a true stand-alone version.
