SILMO Paris 2022 was announced as the recovery edition. The figures are now in, and they surpass all expectations, with a rise in the number of international visitors and an increase in participation by French opticians, confirming that SILMO Paris is back to its precrisis levels. This demonstrates the importance of SILMO for business, communication, information and trends.
During the four days of the trade fair, the 750 exhibitors – frames, lenses, technical materials, brands, general purchasing organisations, services, and so on – welcomed nearly 27,000 visitors, roughly half from France and half from abroad. In detail, the numbers of French visitors reached 13,462, for an increase of 21% compared to 2021. Foreign visitors, from 146 countries, reached 13,444, up by 107% from 2021.
“These figures demonstrate the appeal of SILMO Paris, a leading trade fair that remains an international platform for business and a hub of interaction for all the professionals in the optical and eyewear industry,” confirms Amélie Morel, Chairwoman of SILMO Paris.
While exhibitors ensure the success of a trade fair through their products, creations, innovations and services, SILMO Paris supports them through its unfailing organisation and a complete ecosystem that showcases, informs, and defends the stakeholders in the optical and eyewear industry.
Next SILMO Paris will take place from 29 September to 2 October 2023.
