Guy Charlot, SILMO President, believes the change of date and venue of the world’s largest optometric fair “heralds a new dynamic which will benefit the entire profession.”
SILMO 2010 is held in Paris at the end of this month from 23 September at the Nord Villepinte exhibition centre – veritable hub, entirely dedicated to business, which hosts the most prestigious events in every business sector every year.
“With exhibition space of 80,000 square metres, the Mondial de l’Optique 2010 presents optimal opportunities for the 950 exhibitors attending who will welcome their clients and prospects in an attractive environment and contemporary décor,” says Mr. Charlot.
“Throughout the four days of the fair, the entire optics and eyewear sector -optical and sunglasses frames, lenses, contact lenses, low vision, equipment, optical instruments, etc. – will enjoy the benefits of a single location offering a comfortable, rapid, compact visit, packed with events.
Over four days, the Mondial de l’Optique 2010 will feature a new programme of events and will be the ideal platform to launch new products, discover new brands and identify new trends

This year’s SILMO also sees new activities, including the SILMO Academy, the first scientific colloquium. Its goal is to enhance opticians’ knowledge and provide a better response to their customers’ visual needs by means of three symposium sessions: Opticians and refractive surgery; Opticians and visual ergonomics and Opticians and the eye-ageing process.
