Silmo Paris is ready to open its doors once again, from 23 to 26 September 2022, at Paris nord Villepinte. The new edition of the trade fair wants to be an invitation to dive back into the frenzied pace of the optical and eyewear industry, to inspire its present and shape its future. as an international business hub and a platform for the launches of new collections and brands, Silmo Paris is the not-to-be-missed event. for 89% of exhibitors and 93% of visitors, this event is essential to the sector for so many reasons: the irresistible conviviality of the trade fair, its extensive choice of brands and products, and the way it combines information with training, innovation and creativity. Indeed, creativity is at the heart of the optical and eyewear industry, and Silmo Paris is its reflection.
With this approach, the trade fair is launching a new Optical Design Contest 2022, whose jury will be presided over by the designer and artistic director Emmanuel gallina. In keeping with this approach, and to accompany ophthalmic optical professionals in their pursuit of excellence, Silmo Paris supports research in the vision and Optical Sciences with Silmo academy.
