SIOF is reputed to be the largest international optical event in Asia and is endorsed by the Ministry of Commerce of China as a “recognised distinguished exhibition”.

Additionally delegates can attend a series of professional seminars.
China is an enormous market for exporters with 550 million citizens in need of eye care services. An incredible 50 million people wear contact lenses. Increasingly, the Chinese population craves luxurious, branded, imported eyewear.
