Silmo Paris 2018, So Much More Than a Fair

Silmo 2018 will be bigger and better than ever before with 108 new companies registered including 20 start-ups, and the return of two iconic companies – Menicon and De Rigo.*

This year the organisers will introduce:

  • The Selection, an exhibition of trending products presented as a scenic forum
  • Trends by Silmo, a digital magazine designed as a real trend book (en.silmoparis.com/Discover-Silmo/Press/Trends-By-Silmo); and
  • Futurology, a new space that aims to present the products and processes of tomorrow and to create connections between historical and new players to help new markets to emerge. In its first year, the Futurology space will promote products and start-ups according to four major themes: sport, well-being and health, entertainment, and additive manufacturing. Garmin, McLaren, Matérialise, Everysight, 5th Dimension, LightVision, Microoled, Atol, Cinemizer, and more have already confirmed their presence and will present their vision on these new potentials in lectures.

Silmo D’Or Awards

The judging panel for the 2018 Silmo D’Or Awards will be chaired by Belgian interior designer Michel Penneman, who is internationally renowned for his hotel renovations. Mr. Penneman is passionate about conceptual architecture and likes to design comprehensive projects based on stories. He created the amazing Pantone Hotel in Brussels where his mastery of architectural narration and colour earned him the Paris Hospitality Award for Best Novelty of the Year 2010, and first prize in the Miami Travel and Leisure Awards in the same year.

Silmo M@tch

Silmo M@tch, an application launched in 2017 to link the right product with the right buyer, has been enhanced for the 2018 edition. As a real personal shopper through artificial intelligence (AI), it makes it possible to suggest products according to the tastes and the purchase criteria declared by the visitors at their pre-registration. As users make choices and selections, the system improves the accuracy of the products suggested by using AI. The matches may then lead to appointments with exhibitors.

Silmo Paris takes place from 28 September to 1 October 2018.
