Industry Relevance

The first edition of MIDO was held in 1970 at Rho Fiera Milano, which makes the approaching edition in 2020 the show’s 50th anniversary! That’s half a century of excellence and dedication to advancing optical technology and the fashionable aspects of eyewear. It’s the perfect marriage of style and substance. The annual trade fair manages to cover the entire product spectrum from the materials, optics and optical instruments to spectacle frames, contact lenses and sports glasses. The exhibition space is divided in themed areas - Fashion district, Lenses, Design Lab, Lab Academy, Tech, MORE!, Press Village and FAiR East. We also want to highlight the fine programming that takes place at the event from the Otticlub to the BESTORE Award ceremony!

Needless to say, MIDO creates a thriving community that comes from all sort of places. There are manufacturers and buyers, designers, entrepreneurs, opticians, ophthalmologists and the entire global eyewear supply chain – all gathered together for one event. That’s impressive and gives you opportunities to build a professional network at all industry levels, which is not a chance to pass up on. The hosted buyers program has enabled for the top 150 buyers to be present at MIDO which is another major incentive to position your products at the trade fair.
