Numbers Stack Up For Silmo Istanbul 2018

Silmo Istanbul’s sixth edition, from 13 to 16 December 2018, presented 150 companies and 647 brands throughout three levels of the 17,000 m2 Istanbul Expo Center Yeşilköy. The tradeshow attracted 10,784 visitors – representing an increase of 16 per cent on 2017, and comprising 27.5 per cent professionals from overseas.

According to the organisers, the powerful upswing reflected, “the ambition of this trade fair to win over the heart of the Eurasian zone – encompassing the great economic power of the Balkans, the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa, which is emerging as the ideal meeting point for the optical and eyewear industry.

“In particular, the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) zone addresses a market of nearly 350 million consumers with growing purchasing power. Thanks to the international exposure of Silmo Istanbul, optical and eyewear professionals had the opportunity to encounter Turkish and foreign producers and to boost their business in Istanbul, the economic capital of Turkey”.

The 2019 edition of Silmo Istanbul will be held from 21–24 November.
