SILMO Paris 2019

Unlike most UK Opticians we travel internationally to trade shows so that we can discover the best niche eyewear brands from around the world. This allows us to offer you something different to what can be found elsewhere on the high-street.

In September 2019 our optometrists Norma, Chris and Charlotte and our Dispensing Opticians Sharon and Lucy travelled to Paris for Silmo which is one of the Worlds largest optical trade fairs. Silmo is an annual event where over 850 exhibitors present almost 1400 brands on 80,000 sqm of exhibition space!

It certainly wasn’t a holiday! We spent 2 long days exploring the vast number of displays leaning a lot about the latest styles and materials available from suppliers from all over the world.

We were thrilled to add to our stock of Kirk & Kirk and FaceAFace and we also secured two new amazing ranges, one for gents and one for ladies. These should arrive in the practice in October.
